According to the White House, Ahmadinejad is Iran's 'elected leader'

President Ahmadinejad was sworn in today as the president of Iran, for his second term.

Apparently that is good enough for President Obama.

According to AP,

White House spokesman Robers Gibbs was asked Tuesday if the White House recognized Ahmadinejad as the country's legitimate president.

"He's the elected leader," Gibbs responded.

What a slap in the face to the thousands of Iranians still risking their lives to protest what is widely perceived as a stolen election. He might as well have just sent Ahmadinejad his congratulations.
