Accomplices– Mike Wallace echoes Ahmadinejad

Wallace has interviewed and appeared sympathetic to other terrorist leaders, among them Arafat, and more recently Hussein just before he was overthrown.  Power Line Blog reviews Wallace’s comments (unclear source) on the Iranian Islamo-fascist.  Note Wallace’s echoing of the Iranian phrase “Zionist state” rather than calling it Israel:

Of Ahmadinejad, Wallace said, “He’s an impressive fellow, this guy. He really is. He’s obviously smart as hell.”Wallace said he was surprised to find that the Iranian president was still a college professor who taught a graduate-level course.

“You’ll find him an interesting man,” he said. “I expected more of a firebrand. I don’t think he has the slightest doubt about how he feels … about the American administration and the Zionist state. He comes across as more rational than I had expected.”

This is reminiscent of the way journalists and others would react after meeting Hitler. He wasn’t a raving lunatic, like I expected! He was calm! Rational! Even Charming! (I wonder whether Ahmadinejad is a vegetarian.) What did Wallace expect? That a village idiot somehow ended up running a nation of 68 million?
