(ABC News) The State Department says Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is a terrorist, but will grant him a visa anyway, ABC News has learned.
The State Department has issued a legal finding that Ahmadinejad is ineligible for a U.S. visa because of section 212(a)3(b) of the Immigration and Naturalization Act, which says anyone with terrorist ties cannot be granted a visa.
US officials, despite confirming that Ahmadinejad has strong terrorist connections are granting him entrance in order to avoid a conflict with the United Nations. Although their are many voices protesting his arrival, the sad truth is that the United States was in no position to deny Ahmadinejad entering the US as that would have violated it's agreement with placing the United Nations in New York.
The Bush administration has been under tremendous pressure from the veterans of the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis to deny Ahmadinejad a visa. Many of the former hostages say Ahmadinejad was one of their captors. An extensive U.S. investigation, however, has uncovered no evidence to prove Ahmadinejad had any role in the hostage crisis. Evidence or no evidence, the legal finding says the Iranian president has terrorist ties.
Several groups pro-freedom Iranian groups are preparing to protest the event around September 14th, two days after Ahmadinejad arrives. Although cleared to enter the US, the Iranian President will not be allowed to "wander away" to far from New York as he is banned from traveling more than 25 miles away from the UN building.
