Jed: Do you have any reason to think Ahmadinejad doesn't mean every word he says? The nutty statements seemed to start almost as soon as he became president. I suspect he's simply speaking his mind. Why did the Mullahs pick a wild-eyed true-believer as president now? They must have needed someone whose fealty to the Islamic Republic wasn't in question, and felt that this was more important than presenting a friendly face to the world. If I'm right, they're feeling weak. Good.
