• Iran Hangs 7 On Christmas Day, Obama Still Considering Opening U.S. Embassy In Tehran

    Obama is considering offering the ultimate olive branch to the barbaric mullahs who run Iran: A U.S. embassy.

    Steve Inskeep, NPR’s senior political reporter, asked Obama if there is “any scenario under which you can envision, in your final two years, opening a U.S. embassy in Tehran?” 

    “I never say never,” Obama replied. “I think these things have to go in steps.”

    Obama has always been breathtakingly blind and ignorant of Iran’s unabashed devotion to suffocate its citizens’ human rights. He doesn’t even think that the radically Islamic state–hellbent on developing a nuke and aiming it straight at Israel–is a credible threat; he once called Iran “tiny.”

    However, Obama may have gone too far this time.

    Just as Obama announced that he is considering normalizing diplomatic relations with Iran (just as he has with Communist Cuba), it’s being reported that the deadly Iranian regime has hanged more than 20 of its citizens in recent weeks.

    At least seven citizens were hanged on Christmas morning and 12 more were “secretly hanged” days before and after the holiday, according to the National Council of Resistance of Iran.

    There’s a reason why diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Iran were severed more than 30 years ago, with no president looking back.

    Until now.

    Iran has “got a chance to get right with the world,” Obama said in his NPR interview. “There’s incredible talent and resources and sophistication inside of Iran and it would be a very successful regional power that was also abiding by international norms and international rules – and that would be good for everybody.”

    Iran indiscriminately hangs political prisoners and homosexual on a near-daily basis. The 170 people hanged this year in Iran are the most of any other country with the exception of China, the most populous nation in the world.

    Obama knows these facts and doesn’t care, or he really is as naive as his critics believe him to be.

    Either scenario is a dangerous one.
