Iran's President Elect, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has a face one Mosinee man will never forget.
In 1979, Iranian students stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, taking 52 Americans hostage. The hostage crisis lasted 444 days. Many across the country say Iran's president-elect looks very similar to one of the Iranian captors.
Mosinee's Kevin Hermening says he made the connection after looking at photos. "He's a scary fellow. Very hard lined, very cruel and I think we've got a lot of concern especially as it relates to some of the nuclear ambition."
Ahmadinejad is a conservative and his surprise win in the recent election is already a concern to U.S. officials.
The president-elect's aides deny he was involved in the hostage ordeal.
