Update 9:40pm Eastern. Need another reason to get off your duff and join one of the protests in NYC or DC tomorrow. Check out Allahpundit’s summary of the Iranian nutjob’s talking points from his 60 Minutes’ appearance, which was taped in Iran on Thursday.

Meantime, filed tonight by the Associated Press, charges from the US about Iranian-sent missiles in Iraq:

The U.S. military accused Iran on Sunday of smuggling surface-to-air missiles and other advanced weapons into Iraq for use against American troops. The new allegations came as Iraqi leaders condemned the latest U.S. detention of an Iranian in northern Iraq, saying the man was in their country on official business. Military spokesman Rear Adm. Mark Fox said U.S. troops were continuing to find Iranian-supplied weaponry including the Misagh 1, a portable surface-to-air missile that uses an infrared guidance system. Other advanced Iranian weaponry found in Iraq includes the RPG-29 rocket-propelled grenade, 240 mm rockets and armor-piercing roadside bombs known as explosively formed penetrators, or EFPs, Fox said.

An American soldier was killed Saturday and another wounded when an EFP hit their patrol in eastern Baghdad, the military said.

Update 8:00pm Eastern. A few photos from the protests earlier today…

Mad-moud will also be meeting with “American Muslim leaders.” Charles Johnson takes a guess at their identities and initials.

Update 6:30pm Eastern. For those of you who can’t make it up to NY tomorrow and are in the Washington, D.C. area, here’s info on a protest outside the National Press Club organized by The Israel Project:

Update: 9/11 family member Sgt. Tim Sumner passes along this flabbergasting FARS report and wonders which families he’s going to meet…

After having been rejected by the United States administration to visit the site of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is now planning to meet the families of the 9/11 victims, Fars news agency reported.

Fars, which is close to the presidential office, further reported that Ahmadinejad would also meet US war critics…

Yes, question their patriotism. And their sanity.

In addition to the National Rally to End the Threat Now at noon on Monday at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza across from the United Nations and the Columbia U. student protest on Monday from 1:00pm to 3:00pm at The Columbia Gates. 116th and Broadway, there’s a rally against Ahmadinejad today at 12:30pm:

At 12:30 p.m. Sunday, New York City Council Member David I. Weprin (D-Hollis), chair of the New York City Council Finance Committee, will join other elected officials, community groups and civic leaders to protest Ahmadinejad’s visit and urge Columbia to rescind its invitation. The rally is to take place at Columbia’s main gate at W. 116th St. and Broadway.

Ahead of his visit here, the Iranian nutjob sent a shout-out to his Hamas homeboys

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad reaffirmed his support for the Hamas authorities in the Gaza Strip, in a telephone call with the premier dismissed by the Palestinian leadership, a Hamas spokesman said Sunday.

“Prime minister Ismail Haniya spoke Saturday night with … the president of the Iranian Islamic republic Mahmoud Ahmadinejad,” spokesman Tahar Al Nunu said.

“He wished him well on the occasion of the month of Ramadan, and reaffirmed Palestinian-Iranian ties,” he added.

…and enjoyed an Iranian military parade of new long-range missiles, replete with “Death to the US/Israel” banners (via LGF):

Will Ahmadinejad’s hosts at his National Press Club luncheon videoconference chew on that?

Stand With Us.
