It's pretty obvious that boss Obama of the US Territories figures that mobster Imawhackjob will be the boss of the Middle Eastern Territories, so he's setting up to deal. He could care less about the Iranian people.

One wonders exactly WHAT was negotiated, especially something so important that BO clearly will not condemn the people he was negotiating with. I don’t like it. It stinks to high Heaven.

No. It is reportedly Neda Agha-Soltan.

Obama was angry at Garret...because Garret was spot on target.

I just heard the audio of that exchange. Obama definitely sounded testy and defensive.

Garrett’s question-If you were so outraged, what took you so long to speak out -really rocked Barry.

I do not think Barry will hold up when the press finally takes off the kid gloves. He is going to turn into a quivering mess of jelly. Geez louise, millions of Americans have quit smoking and he is unable to stop. There is nothing exceptional about him at all.

One thing I noticed about Hussein, he never uses the word freedom in describing the events in Iran. I think it is something he detests.

I saw the clip afterward on the news. Wonder how long Major Garrett will be allowed in the press room.

He's got some stones.

He did maybe more for journalism, Iran and America in two sentences than that whole room of journalists will do for the rest of their lives.

There’s a singer who frequented the college circuit, mainly in Western NY but he has appeared nationwide. His name is John Valby and back in the early 80s he did a song about Ayatollah Khomeini of which some applies today. It’s so offensive that I can’t even post a link or I would be banned. If I were an admin mod I would. Please Freepmail me for the link, only if you’re not offended by strong adult language and plenty of it.

Since you mentioned “meddling, I wonder what the Lord of the Flies thinks about Iran’s “meddling” in Iraq, in which they fed the insurgency with weapons, training, personnel, and money and caused the unnecessary deaths of hundreds of Americans?

Yes.  And soon after that, Ahmadinejad will have a nice teaching job in one of our universities.

So will our US Embassies abroad still invite the diplomatic corps of thugs and henchmen of the present Iranian Regime to our 4th of July fireworks and barbeque parties that every Embassy of the United States of America, under the Obama administration, will have? They were invited about 2 months ago. The President had ample opportunity yesterday during the press conference to dis-invite these people.

“Muslim women have *** the right **** to cover themselves in the burqa or nigab in America.”

I can’t stand obama, but there is a difference between having ***the right*** to cover yourself in a shroud and being FORCED or THREATENED to cover yourself.

Question #1: Devout muslim women cover themselves because?
A. Fear
B. Tradition
C. Fear
D. Fashionable (I think NOT)

Question #2: Do muslim women really have a choice in the matter?

Question #3: Does living in America make a muslim less muslimic than living in the middle east?

Answer to 1, 2 and 3 (please correct me if I’m wrong): Muslim women HAVE NO CHOICE in the matter, have NO RIGHTS. Therefore Obama-lama’s statement is a moot point. You’re either a muslim or you’re not. No half & half. You want rights? Don’t be a muslim female.

Nuns’ habits ... Jewish ladies with wigs ...

We see a lot of peeps in prayer coverings here, as well.

However, none of these cover the face. Someone else said that if a woman’s face is covered, it takes away her identity, and hides injuries from abuse.

ONe of those head to toe deals with a netting-covered peep hole would be an abuser’s best friend.

....”We have provided a path whereby Iran can reach out to the international community, engage, and become a part of international norms.....

This statement overlooks the fact that Iran cares nothing about international norms or community. The point of being Iran is to eliminate international norms and bring about a totally new community.

They laugh at a naive black African upstart. He thinks there is a raceless world, but the world rejects the concept knowing Africans are the dregs of the worls population

It is the similarities they are afraid of! When the power of the people is exercised to rid themselves of corrupt, lying leaders. A question: Who owns the US Dollar? Our currency...it's not us. Its the Federal reserve..a PRIVATE institution of old Family Banks. They decide the value of the dollar , the interest rate and they decide who will be in office. Its not your vote or your oppinion that counts the least bit. It might be waved off as conspiracy talk but it is a conspiracy of the highest magnitude never the less.Who of the American people was asked or voted for taking the Dollar of the Gold Standard? The Silver Standard? Who actually decided to unlink currency from actual value? With actual values no imaginative billion dollar amounts that exist only in computer banks could be pushed around and any losses and gains are true.
The press, the media and even the man on the street speaks of “Our leaders in Washington” . We fought the English against such leader tyranny. The average Joe seems to have forgotten that the President and every politican is supposed to be there to represent us. to work FOR us not above us.
They are affrays that this could be an example to others to get rid of corruption and dictator ship. Because we already live in one where it is dictated to us how to live our lives.( the federal reserve it is a quasi-public and quasi-private (government entity with private components) What bullcrap is that? Money is a weapon and THEY control it not you!
