Pope Gets Letter From Ahmadinejad
"VATICAN CITY -- Pope Benedict XVI received a letter Wednesday from Iran's hardline president about the recent U.N. Security Council resolution imposing sanctions against Tehran for refusing to compromise on its nuclear program, Iran's state-run news agency reported.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's letter was delivered by Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki after the pontiff's general audience at the Vatican's Paul VI hall, the Vatican said.
The Vatican did not release details of the content of Ahmadinejad's letter, but Iran's state-run IRNA news agency said the note focused on Saturday's Security Council vote approving sanctions against Iran in the standoff over its nuclear program.
The Vatican said Benedict stressed his apolitical role in his brief meeting with Mottaki...."
It seems as if Ahmadinejad is trying to get some sympathy from the Vatican in his efforts to belittle the Bush Administration. Granted, the Vatican will stay as apolitical as possible, they should support the West's efforts to thwart any Islamic nuclear program.
