Deny Visa To Ahmadinejad

The Iranian news agency Fars reports that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will address the UN next week. In a letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, Mitt Romney writes:
If President Ahmadinejad sets foot in the United States, he should be handed an indictment under the Genocide Convention. This approach has been called for by experts as diverse as Nobel Prize Winner Elie Wiesel, human rights advocate and former Canadian Justice Minister Irwin Cotler, U.S. Ambassador John Bolton and law professor Alan Dershowitz.
Nice to see. I don't know if any other presidential candidate has made public their own reaction to Ahmadinejad's planned visit, but my hope is that each of them will be forced to address the issue. My own position on the matter hasn't changed:
We are at war. We are not obligated to admit anyone, especially the titular head of a terror sponsoring enemy nation with American blood on its hands, into our country. It shouldn't even be an issue; that it is speaks volumes about the UN and its presence in NY. Deny him a visa and use the occasion to publicize our explanation. And make it clear that American policy from now on will be to deny a visa to anyone like him.
