An influential security group with White House connections is campaigning to stop a posh New York hotel from hosting Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is scheduled to address the United Nations later this month, The Post has learned.
United Against Nuclear Iran — a bipartisan group whose founders include Obama special Afghanistan envoy Richard Holbrooke and Middle East aide Dennis Ross — says the InterContinental The Barclay New York hotel is housing Ahmadinejad and the Iran delegation during the 64th UN General Assembly beginning next Tuesday.
