Mike Wallace, I expected better from you...


Mr. Wallace, you went to Iran as a cultural representative of the United States. You don't have to agree with him but if you can't treat the Iranian President with a little respect, why should the Iranian people have any expectation that the US would treat them respectfully... would have any inclination to honor their culture and beliefs? Really, what reason do Iranians have to believe that anything has changed since the CIA took the lead role in the overthrow of the democratically-elected Mossadegh administration and the subsequent installation of a dictatorship under the Shah? Certainly, not our active support of Saddam Hussein in his war against Iran.

Is it because you are now "retired" that you think it's OK to be snide and condescending when you interview elected officials from other countries? And, what's with all the ancillary bitching about scheduling issues? Elected officials do work; has your notoriety so gone to your head that you believe an interview with you is more important than running a country? Things actually do come up...

If you missed 60 Minutes last night, follow the "Link" below and be sure to play the video. It's edited but they couldn't quite edit out all of Wallace's attitude.
