Fred Thompson Statement on Ahmadinejad at Columbia University

McLean, VA - Senator Fred Thompson issued the following statement today regarding Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's appearance this afternoon at Columbia University:
"Columbia University gave a public forum today to a tyrant to spread his lies and deceit. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made a mockery of free speech by standing in front of an auditorium of academicians and students and denying the existence of the Holocaust and his deadly intentions toward Israel.

"I find it ironic that Iran's president accepted an invitation to speak at Columbia University, since students who dissent on Iranian campuses are not met with debate, they are met by a gun and imprisonment. A few months ago, eight college students were imprisoned in Iran's notorious Evin Prison for publishing articles and cartoons critical of Iran's government in a student-run newspaper. The Evin facility has been described as Iran's 'most feared prison' and is known to stone women to death. We need to do our best to empower freedom-loving people throughout Iran."

Frankly, I'm unhappy that we take prisoners in the war on terror. I have no problem with torturing our eniemies to gain useful information. I have no feelings, one way or the other, for the enemies of my country. America can be your best friend or your worst enemy. If you choose to be an enemy of America, then so be it. But understand, you WILL suffer the consequences.

Remember this: The Terrorist took down two buildings... America took down TWO COUNTRIES!

Have a nice day, sir!

Best regards,
