New stance, or new spin? Ahmadinejad speaks to NBC

After interviewing Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today, NBC News anchor Brian Williams pronounced Tehran as having a “new stance ready for further engagement.”

“It was clear to all of us watching and listening he brought with him a new approach,” Williams said of Ahmadinejad. Williams said the Iranian president told him, “We are not working to manufacture a bomb,” said, “Nuclear weapons are so 20th century,” and that, “if the American approach changes, Iranians will have a positive response.'”

Apparently, Williams is convinced. But is this a new stance, or just a new ploy by a regime doing all it can to stall action against a suspected nuclear weapons program just months away from being able to produce a bomb?
