    If we’d still been in Teheran, it would have been us. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me a whit to learn that the look-and-feel of the embassy take-over was intented to remind Americans of Carter’s, and Obama’s by inheritance, miserable performance for some 400+ days. Just a kiss blown from the IRG to the limp dishrag they helped elect.

    Surprised no mention was made of the fact that was all over Special Report, i.e., that the occupation was retaliation for the Brits sanctioning Iran’s central bank, thereby shutting off their access to British banks. Apparently the US has not done that, even though it would be a grevious wound to Iran’s financial body.
