But Obama’s been so nice to them?
Iran’s “bay of pigs”?
Obama government attempt to help anyone and anything will backfire.
Might have worked better if it were not for the fact that 2 of the major cell phone companies helped the Mullah’s find the opposition.
I came to use Twitter during that event and found it the only good source of info. Freedom seeking Iranian (Persian) people should be respected.
I witnessed a similar situation in Honduras during their elections. They had a much better outcome and retained their Republican government in spite of Obozo’s efforts to reinstall a Commie convert.
As demonstrated by the turnout of the TEA Party gatherings, we are in good company with other groups of citizens who demand freedom. Remember, NOVEMBER is COMING!
Really? I think sometimes to promote democracy it is first necessary to kick a few evil 4$$e$. It isn't the same as med school.
The cell phone video recorders protected the Iranian students from having their heads cracked. The authorities wouldn’t risk the bad publicity. The film would have been on the next flight to Dubai!
This story is about the Guardian, Clinton, the Obama admin, the left trying to look like hip and revolutionary cryptologists. As if the Iranian students are so dumb they don’t know about ip addresses or how to talk. Might as well dump on the hacker.
If The Guardian and Hillary like it, it has to be bad.
Austin Heap, a 26-year-old hacker born in Ohio, decided to develop anticensorship software to foil the authorities' efforts. He named the product Haystack, and began earlier this year to distribute it to Iranian opposition leaders... The Treasury, State Department and Commerce Department hastened to grant Mr Heap a licence to export the software to Iran -- not normally a favoured destination for American sales efforts, especially cryptographical ones. But experts rapidly raised doubts. On investigation, Haystack looked dangerously insecure. Not only did it fail to encrypt secrets properly, but it could also reveal its users' identities and locations. Amid mounting criticism, Haystack's backers withdrew it on September 10th.
