Mike Wallace Interview with Ahmadinejad

Mike Wallace was able to interview Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the presidential palace in Tehran. CBS has clips of it available here. The interview in full will be broadcast tonight on "60 Minutes" at 6 pm.

Some highlights:

Speaking about President Bush's failure to answer his 18-page letter that criticized U.S. foreign policy, Ahmadinejad said, "Well, (with the letter) I wanted to open a window towards the light for the president so that he can see that one can look on the world through a different perspective. … We are all free to choose. But please give him this message, sir: Those who refuse to accept an invitation will not have a good ending or fate.

Wallace has a web exclusive piece discussing the experience available on the site. I couldn't grab a direct link, but it's worth watching if you can find it.

Ahmadinejad also has a blog. You can see it here.
