Wallace's Bizarre Fascination with Ahmadinejad

Retired CBS veteran correspondent Mike (60 minutes) Wallace scored an exclusive interview with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and has apparently given the dictator another stage to pontificate on the evils of America and demand the world's submission to Islamic intimidation.

Speaking about President Bush's failure to answer his 18-page letter that criticized U.S. foreign policy, Ahmadinejad suggests we embrace Dhimmitude:

Well, (with the letter) I wanted to open a window towards the light for the president so that he can see that one can look on the world through a different perspective. ... We are all free to choose. But please give him this message, sir: Those who refuse to accept an invitation will not have a good ending or fate.
The threat is clear - Jihad Watch, via Wizbangblog, explains:
When Iran's Thug-In-Chief sent his letter to President Bush, I pointed out that it had the form of invitations to accept Islam that preceded jihad attacks all the way back to Muhammad's day. The prophet of Islam himself wrote to the Byzantine emperor Heraclius and other rulers, telling them, "Accept Islam and your lives and property will be safe" -- with the clear implication that their lives and property would not be safe if they did not accept Islam. Muhammad directed his followers to call unbelievers to accept Islam or dhimmitude, and to go to war if they rejected both (cf. Sahih Muslim 4294). Ahmadinejad here makes clear that that is exactly what he is doing with Bush: telling him to accept Islam, or face the consequences.
Ahmadinejad also puts on display a ridiculous level of self-righteous hypocritical rhetoric. Regarding the United States, he asserts:

They want to build an empire. And they don't want to live side-by-side in peace with other nations. The American government, sir, it is very clear to me they have to change their behavior and everything will be resolved. (George W. Bush) believes that his power emanates from his nuclear warhead arsenals. The time of the bomb is in the past, it's behind us. Today is the era of thoughts, dialogue and cultural exchanges.
Yes, this is this the same lunatic who previously said:
Many who are disappointed in the struggle between the Islamic world and the infidels have tried to spread the blame. They say it is not possible to have a world without the United States and Zionism. But you know that this is a possible goal and slogan.

... Our dear Imam said that the occupying regime [Israel] must be wiped off the map and this was a very wise statement.

This is also the self-proclaimed student of history who denies the holocaust:
They have invented a myth that Jews were massacred and place this above God, religions and the prophets," Ahmadinejad said in a speech to thousands of people in the Iranian city of Zahedan...
Bush has not called for the destruction of Iran, the conversion of the Iranian people or the assassination of Ahmadinejad. However, Bush does seem to believe that world leaders with an inclination toward genocide should not be given the opportunity to acquire nuclear weapons, which is a very wise position.

Wallace, on the other hand, seems to have a bizarre fascination with the Islamic tyrant,

"He's actually, in a strange way, he's a rather attractive man, very smart, savvy, self-assured, good looking in a strange way," Wallace said. "He's very, very short but he's comfortable in his own skin."
Whatever ... one has to wonder what this has to do with the real issues facing the Middle East, the prospect of nuclear war and Iran's ongoing campaign against Israel via Hizballah.
