It's him but is he a hostage taker

Reader comment on item: Ahmadinejad - Hostage Taker?

Submitted by Jkeiler (United States), Nov 13, 2006 at 07:24

This picture sure looks like Ahmadinejad, unlike the earlier photo, but it doesn't show him in any context, other than the fact that he's armed and wearing a military jacket. It doesn't prove he's a hostage taker, although I'm not sure this issue makes much difference one way or the other. Would it really have mattered if Hitler had been a clerk at division headquarters in WWI instead of a front-line runner?
