Why Ahmadinejad Voted Against Occupying the U.S. Embassy in 1979

This week, as opposition supporters in Iran marked the 30th anniversary of the takeover of the United States Embassy in Tehran by protesting outside the active Russian Embassy instead of the abandoned American one, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad failed to mention that, as a student leader in 1979, he had voted against the plan to seize the U.S. compound and suggested taking the Soviet Embassy instead.

Interesting.  Nothing is ever black and white.
