Dr. Katherine Albrecht
, author of the best-selling book SPYCHIPS
and host of a daily radio show, pointed out on a recent program that
the United Nations has completely erased all traces of Iran President
Mahmood Ahmadinejad's September 26, 2012 speech to the United Nations
Albrecht, who happened to be in New York City on business the day
that Ahmadinjad gave his speech, was discussing related issues on her November 28th show and tried to post a link to the Iran President's speech in her
archives. That is when she found that it had been inexplicably scrapped-
memory holed- and no longer existed anywhere, except from reposts on a
few obscure websites. The transcript of the speech had originally been
posted on the U.N. site, but the links now result in a 'PAGE NOT FOUND'
Albrecht's 11/28 archive lists the followng description:
Islamophobia // Burka // Media // Ahmadinejad //
Katherine discuss Islamaphobia raising its head in burka banning -
without regard to the culture that wants and welcomes the burka. Why is
the media lying to distort and fan up hatred? Katherine relates a
conversation she had with a burka clad Syrian woman. Despite the media,
Islam and Ahmadinejad do not hate the Jews - they just hate Israel's
Audio of Dr. Albrecht's discussion on the matter can be heard here [Thurs., November 29th, Hour 1].
Despite being scrapped from the U.N. website, the transcript of Ahmadinejad's Sept. 26th speech remains posted on Fox News. The dandelionsalad blog also posted the transcript along with the two original links to the U.N. website:
[http://gadebate.un.org/67/iran-islamic-republic and http://gadebate.un.org/sites/default/files/gastatements/67/IR_en.pdf.] Both are gone.
A list of other people who gave speeches to the U.N. on 9/26/12 can be found here:
and their speeches remain. A query of the U.N. website reveals that the
text of Ahmadinejad's Sept. 17, 2005 speech to the U.N. can still be
as well as a "Readout of Secretary-General's Meeting with H.E. Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad, President of the Islamic Republic of Iran" from2011 and 2012.
Ahmadinejad's speech can still be found on youtube,
but Albrecht pointed out that if the U.N. along with Google, Inc. and
other large media corporations decide to randomly censor historical
speeches given at a taxpayer-funded organization simply because the
speaker's views may be controversial, that does not bode well for
