President Ahmadinejad Arrives Quietly in New York

The Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) reports that "President Ahmadinejad arrives in New York."

The article also says President Ahmadinejad is scheduled to address the United Nations on Tuesday, an talk with the UN secretary general, and leaders of several countries "on the sidelines of the UN meeting."

The Iranian president arrival in New York City was done quite inconspicuously, according to, and with very, very tight security.

Good idea, considering how upset some people are over his arrival.

Between that, and the Iranian president's visit to Columbia University, it should be an interesting couple of days.

Note! Although I believe that these websites and blogs are useful resources for understanding the War on Terror, I do not necessarily agree with their opinions. 1 1 Given a recent misunderstanding of the phrase "useful resources," a clarification: I do not limit my reading to resources which support my views, or even to those which appear to be accurate. Reading opinions contrary to what I believed has been very useful at times: sometimes verifying my previous assumptions, sometimes encouraging me to change them.

Even resources which, in my opinion, are simply inaccurate are sometimes useful: these can give valuable insights into why some people or groups believe what they do.

In short, It is my opinion that some of the resources in this blogroll are neither accurate, nor unbiased. I do, however, believe that they are useful in understanding the War on Terror, the many versions of Islam, terrorism, and related topics.
