Nicholas Kristof discusses his interview with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad

Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Nicholas Kristof was the only print journalist to interview Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at this year's United Nations General Assembly.

Kristof spoke with Ahmadinejad just hours before the release of two American hikers from Iranian custody, Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal, and he describes the interview as calm, and conciliatory, with moments of tension.

Today on American Morning, Christine Romans sits down with Kristof to discuss what Ahmadinejad said about the hikers' release, Iran's relationship with the U.S., and recent protests in Syria.
