Iran pres. launches verbal assault

From NBC's Andrea Mitchell
Launching an attack on the United State at the United Nations, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said that the U.S. has never lived up to its commitments and has tried to "change the focus" from its own noncompliance with nuclear treaties by diverting to issues like nuclear terrorism.

He also accused the CIA of working with "the Zionist regime"  (Israel) against "independent nations" in the region.

The U.S. delegation walked out, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is scheduled to be across the street at the U.S. mission until after he finishes his speech.
