Ahmadinejad joins me in Dakar

During my visit in April, Libyan leader Moamar Qadhafi came to Senegal for Independence Day, demanding reparations from France and suggesting that Senegalese President Abdoulaye Wade should be president for life.

This time, still without a necktie, it's Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who descended upon Dakar en route to Cuba.

Wade has been a key intermediary between Iran and Europe. Why? Senegal is very pro-West; but also a Muslim nation.

And lookout America - he'll be in NYC for the UN General Assembly meeting that is coming up!

George,
I hope you aren't getting paid to read newspapers over there like Wayne Bryant was at UMDNJ ;)
