Obama's Damaging Policy Of "Non-Meddling" In Iran

Obama's Damaging Policy Of "Non-Meddling" In Iran

June 16, 2009 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - With pressure mounting on the administration to at least verbally challenge the terrorist Iranian regime over last week's sham election, president Obama on Tuesday finally weighed into the fray, displaying once again his penchant for kid-glove treatment of America's enemies while dealing roughshod with former allies such as Israel [see for example, http://www.pipelinenews.org/index.cfm?page=katzid=5.7.09%2Ehtm Knesset Member Yaakov Katz Accuses Rahm Emanuel And Obama Of Forcing Israel's Suicide].

As in his Cairo speech where Obama was more than willing to rewrite history to keep it within a narrative advancing the fatuous claim that Islam is the religion of peace, today's brief statement contained no condemnation of the mounting violence in Iran or the nature of the regime itself.

Instead, the president seemed to be acting in the role of public relations agent for the Iranian theocracy, even offering absent fact or reason, a belief that the country's "supreme leader" is actually concerned over the post electoral bedlam as well as the results, while placing faith that the ayatollahs will "investigate," a process that was obviously wired directly by them from the get-go.

Not only did Obama refrain from the strong-arm tactics recently employed against the Israeli's, attempting to dictate the terms under which settlements in the West Bank must operate, but he completely abdicated his responsibility to show some sort of moral leadership by refusing to, in his words, "meddle" in Iran.

The president's statement itself served as further condemnation of the United States, playing on the leftist mantra that America greatly wronged Iran nearly 60 years ago in helping to depose the communist leaning Mohammed Mossadegh in 1953, "It is not productive, given the history of U.S.-Iranian relations, to be seen as meddling, the U.S. president meddling in Iranian elections."

Given the global challenges facing the U.S., today's performance by the president will certainly fuel the growing feeling that his doctrinaire leftism and pro-Islamist bent will irreparably damage this country. http://www.pipelinenews.org/index.cfm?page=iranid=6.16.09%2Ehtm
