    Delegates from the United States and other nations walked out of the U.N. General Assembly on Thursday as Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad delivered a fiery speech that criticized Washington, capitalism and the world body itself.

    Though incendiary statements from Ahmadinejad are nothing new, tension in the hall grew as the Iranian leader recounted various conspiracy theories about the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on New York and Washington.

    "Some segments within the U.S. government orchestrated the attack," Ahmadinejad told the General Assembly. He followed with the claim that the attacks were aimed at reversing "the declining American economy and its scripts on the Middle East in order to save the Zionist regime. The majority of the American people, as well as most nations and politicians around the world, agree with this view."

    Whats the point if you dont want to listen to another person point of view? At least Columbia university Students listen to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad when he says theyre no gays in Iran. Hes right there are no gays in IRAN. Cause if youre caught doing it you get stone to death or beheadded.Cause Sharia Law doesnt allow homosexualty acts. And it was rude for CNN to cut off his speech. Some liberal network huh? If CNN says how theyre liberal why they cut off Ahmadinejads speech?I wanted to hear his whole speech!
