Meet the New Sadam
The White House characterizes the Iranian President as a possible terrorist leader:
President George Bush said "many questions" had been raised by the allegations that Mr Ahmadinejad was one of the leaders of radical students who seized the embassy and held 52 hostages for more than year.
The claims were made yesterday by five former hostages who said the incoming Iranian president had been involved in interrogations during the embassy drama. "As soon as I saw his picture in the paper, I knew that was the bastard," Colonel Charles Scott, 73, told the Washington Times. "He was one of the top two or three leaders ... The new president of Iran is a terrorist."
