Iran: Hillary, yes! Barack, no! (updated)

That most emotionally disconnected of presidents, Barack Obama, underscored his deep weirdness when it took him a full week to get on the right side of the continuing democracy struggle in Iran. Even then one wonders if Obama still doesn’t have Bill Ayers whispering unconsciously in his ear, reminding him that the “enemigo centrale” was still Amerika, not a regime of sick theocratic misogynists.

Thank the deity for Hillary. At least she seems to have her head screwed on right. In this instance, too bad she’s not President and Obama Secretary of the Interior or some other useless job.

UPDATE: From today’s Debkafile: DEBKAfile’s military and Washington sources report that President Barack Obama is getting set for some military arm-twisting against Iran spearheaded by Israel. This will be the main subject of defense secretary Robert Gates talks in Israel Tuesday, July 28 and was presaged by a strong message secretary of state Hillary Clinton broadcast to Tehran Sunday, July 28, over NBC: “… if you’re pursuing nuclear weapons for the purpose of intimidating, or projecting your power, we are not going to let that happen,” she said. “Your pursuit is futile. We believe as a matter of policy it is unacceptable for Iran to have nuclear weapons.”
