... Ahmadinejad said the U.S. has failed to isolate Iran. He said the fact that Obama's recent visit to Afghanistan was not announced beforehand for security reasons was evidence of America's own isolation.
"First, let's see who is isolated. We think those who can't show up publicly among the people and directly address them are isolated, those who fear nations. Gentlemen go to a country where they have 60,000 troops without any prior announcement. Who is isolated?" Ahmadinejad said.
The Iranian president noted that his own trip to Afghanistan was announced in advance and said he was warmly received.
"You are isolated yourself, but you are hotheaded and don't understand it," Ahmadinejad said.
