For the first time since Mahmoud Ahmadinejad took office in 2005, the United States did not walk out during his speech to the UN.

The Telegraph (UK) reports: US boycotts Mahmoud Ahmadinejad speech at UN (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/9568350/US-boycotts-Mahmoud-Ahmadinejad-speech-at-UN.html).
Different speech? Or is the Telegraph reporting in advance of the speech and we didn’t actually boycott? Or something else?
Instead, the US delegation didn’t show up..
My understanding is there were two Ahmadinejad speeches. From the link:
This is, of course, not Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s main speech – that’s been (perhaps malignantly) scheduled for Wednesday, which is also Yom Kippur.
Unless the video is faked, it clearly shows the US delegation prsent during the speech.
