Ahmadinejad’s Camp Revisits, Revises Gay Comment

An aide to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is attempting to work some spin-control magic on what was probably (and unintentionally, according to the aide) Ahmadinejad’s biggest headline-grabber from his speech at Columbia University: his assertion that, “In Iran, we don’t have homosexuals like in your country.”
