Yeah, this probably won’t help the Obama Administration. Remember when he told us before the last election that he was going to engage with the Iranian government – you know that engagement we’re still waiting to see four years later. The world was going to see us differently, right?
Well Tman sends us a link to the Associated Press report on Iran’s celebration of the 33rd anniversary of when they stormed the US embassy in Tehran in 1979 and held the US staff for 444 days;
Speaking to a crowd of thousands outside the building that once housed the embassy, Gen. Mohammad Reza Naqdi said 10 kilograms (22 pounds) of gold would be given to anyone who found a regime “more criminal than the United States.”
But, he added, that would be impossible, because the Guard has “already done the research and found Washington is the worst on earth.”
So yeah, this administration has really improved the way the world sees us. This little celebration also reminds voters of the recent assault on our consulate in Benghazi and how the attack on the Tehran embassy brought down the Carter Administration for their ineptness at handling the crisis. This administration is equally impotent. The election will be held a scant few days short of two months since the Benghazi attack and this administration has done nothing. Two months after 9-11-2001, the Taliban was on the run. US intelligence knows where training camps in Libya are, and those camps are still operating.
And the source of all of the jihadist death and destruction in the world is calling us the worst criminals in the world. I can hardly wait to vote.
