It seems that President Ahmadinejad and Obama's father figure, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, are of the same opinion when it comes to who's responsible for AIDS:
Ahmadinejad blames West for AIDS

Iran's president on Tuesday blamed the US and other "big powers" for nuclear proliferation, AIDS and other global ills and accused them of exploiting the UN and other organizations for their own gain - and the developing world's loss.
But, he said, time was on the poor countries' side.
"The big powers are going down," Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told foreign ministers of the Nonaligned Movement meeting in Teheran. "They have come to the end of their power, and the world is on the verge of entering a new, promising era."
He accused the great powers of "fomenting discord .... to intensify the military and arms race" so they can feed their arms industries. AIDS, he said, also was the result of world conditions "imposed by big powers."
Accusing the UN Security Council of being a tool of the world's haves - which use them against the have-nots - he said it was useless to expect that body to be the solution to the world's ills.
Perhaps this is why Obama thinks he can charm the pants off of President Tom.
They both think that the US is the root of all evil.
