Since Mahmoud Ahmadinejad couldn't talk to George Bush, he decided to do the next best thing and to grant an interview to Mike Wallace who decided to get out of retirement just for the occasion. I haven't seen the interview, but a lot of people are already presuming that Mike Wallace was too nice to him or rather that he wasn't as tough as he would have been on President Bush. He said that Ahmadinejad was “interesting” and attractive in a strange way, but again, Wallace is entitled to say what his perception of the person he interviewed was. I don't think we would have learned anything from Ahmadinejad if Mike Wallace had been as confrontational as some would have liked him to be. Sometimes, the best way to do an interview is to let the person being questioned talk especially when the public doesn't know about him. I am looking forward to the interview for a number of reasons, the first of which is to get of sense of the person, who is rapidly becoming the most dangerous of the Middle East and of the world.
