Ahmadinejad and the TIME SQUARE
When Iranian president Ahmadinejad announced his visit to NPT summit in UN in USA, there was a great deal of disturbance in the US establishment. They new Ahmadinejad is going to raise some issues like Israel Nukes and USA Bomb banks ,... Than out of nowhere , a car found in the Time square loaded with fuel, so amateur so foolish that a passing by vendor located it (hearing tik tak from distance, maybe a Wall clock time bomb!!!) which let all the channels be diverted from the summit. And more interestingly after astonishing Speech of Iranian president, the second old stereo type drama came on screen, "A PAKISTANI PLOTTED A BOMB IN USA". Don't they have a creative imagination, and come up with a better story. still we just don't get it and announcing our full support to investigate.
