(Newser) – New York politicians and, er, hotel guests may not be too happy with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s visit, but there’s one person who’s happy he’s in town: Sarah Shourd. The hiker, just released after being held in Iran for more than 13 months, gives her first interview to Oprah Winfrey today and says she wants to meet with the Iranian president. She wants him to know that she has “no animosity towards him or towards any Iranian people” and that “there's just no reason for animosity,” the AP reports.
