Monday will be interesting. (bumped)

Kevin McCullough at Townhall says that it looks like Ahamdinejad still fully intends to visit Ground Zero tomorrow. According to Sunday night's 60' Minutes interview with Ahamdinejad, which was partially leaked by Drudge, he still has it on his schedule: (AP has now confirmed this)

In the leaked interview transcript Ahmadinejad never confirms that he took the Ground Zero stop off his schedule. In fact he confirms in the interview that he still has it on his schedule.
Little Green Footballs was, to my knowledge,
the primary voice who did not yet believe what the press had accepted at less than face value. In fact at press time for this column, written especially late in the day, much to my editor's chagrin the Iranian owned Islamic Republic News Agency is STILL reporting that Ahmadinejad is intending to go to Ground Zero. His arrival time is expected to be 10am.

What will make Monday so interesting will be the reaction of the American people. It seems outraged New Yorkers are talking about forming a human chain to keep Ahamdinejad from entering into this sacred ground.

Now that, my friends, would be a sight to see.

Kevin's article reminds us of all that is evil about Ahamdinejad and he invites all of us near or in New York to join him at Liberty Street and Broadway at 9am.

I would give anything to be there. If you are near, please go. Let's not let this place be visited by someone who would honor the 19 who attacked us.
