Voters can sour on their election picks quickly -- this is true everywhere, but much more so in the present Arab Middle East where it's seemingly always spring. Iran's new president Hassan Rouhani can tinker with the economy all he wants, but the fact is the only way to repair it is to have the sanctions lifted. And the only way to do that is to start negotiating on nukes.
As you know, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will address the 67th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York City next Wednesday. While he is not the first war criminal to seek the world stage and will not be the last, the US has the power to refuse him a visa to set foot on American soil. Indeed, President Ahmadinejad is a classic case study of an inadmissible war criminal who belongs on the US "Watchlist." Simply put, those who "aid terrorists ... persecute religious minorities ... or commit or incite to genocide" are prohibited from entering the United States, and the evidence of President Ahmadinejad's criminality on each of these counts is as clear as it is compelling.
