It was President Carter in 1979 who naively misunderstood the internal politics of Iran and let the Shah, Mohammed Reza Pahlavi, be overthrown by Islamists. Carter was overjoyed to let the Ayatollah Khomeini return from his exile in France to take over the Iranian state.

President Obama is neither clueless nor gullible. On the contrary, he full knows what he is about and his unbecoming rush to embrace the Iranian mullahs is destined to become an historic catastrophe for the Free world, the West and for America’s few remaining allies in the Middle East, especially Israel.
Just a few short years ago the Iranian people, desperately wanting a secular democracy, came out into the streets of Tehran in their millions to protest the horror of living under the mullahs. Obama turned his face from them, even as they were begging for his support, and a golden opportunity to free the Iranian people and, especially the many non-Iranian peoples who live under the mullahs yoke, was lost.
