Skip to comments.Two Weeks in January: America's secret engagement with Khomeini
Posted on 06/08/2016 9:28:19 PM PDT by Olog-hai
On 27 January, 1979, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini founder of Irans Islamic Republic, the man who called the United States the Great Satan sent a secret message to Washington.
From his home in exile outside Paris, the defiant leader of the Iranian revolution effectively offered the Carter administration a deal: Iranian military leaders listen to you, he said, but the Iranian people follow my orders.
If President Jimmy Carter could use his influence on the military to clear the way for his takeover, Khomeini suggested, he would calm the nation. Stability could be restored; Americas interests and citizens in Iran would be protected.

...and the pits fell for it.
I think that he has had brain cancer since before becoming President, since everything that he said or did was dumber than a box of rocks.
PUTZ, not pits. Damned phone keeps changing even simple words.
Every ounce of me shakes with revulsion and burning hate for this carter vampire who did this to my country of birth. All the dead. All the destruction. Destruction of good things. Good people. Lives. religions, history, heritage, 2500year historical monarchy, THE ONLY SYSTEM OF GOVERNANCE that land had ever known, the cradle of civilization, all all all destroyed by a pathetic disgusting arrogant peanut farmer from Georgia because he thought HE KNOWS BEST. He knows islam. He knows and can work with devils like Khomeini (He fucking called that murderer “some kind of Persian SAINT!). Who the hell did he think he is, making these grave earth-shattering decisions for a critical ancient country like Iran. Damn him to hell for what he did. All the lives lost, hundreds and hundreds of thousands of good beautiful lives. All forsaken... FOR WHAT??? A friend, a loyal American ally backstabbed. The world still paying for the machinations of this vampire carter. I have lost loved ones. Our home our family business even loved ones, murdered, but mine is nothing compared to millions of others still suffering to this day. Carter’s legacy to the world. And this declassified report is not even the full truthful story. It’s only the tip of the iceberg. There’s still a cesspool of chicanery and callous decision by subterfuge know-nothing leftist bureaucrats that’s still under wraps.
One day, I hope to stand at the grave of this despicable man from Georgia, rub the dirt saved from gravesite of a murdered friend’s on top of his, to be reminded forever of what he did, and I will spit on his gravestone.
What do we do now with these “truths” finally exposed. Damn.
and now we know the rumors are true that we heard and everyone denied
Today’s treason with the JCPOA had precedent in the treason of back then. All in the White House, but no doubt in the halls of Congress too.
