Skip to comments.Iran Snubs Obama, Turns Down His Offer of Meeting at UN
Posted on 09/24/2013 4:27:33 PM PDT by lbryce
After much speculation about whether President Obama and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani would meet, perhaps photographed shaking hands together, the Islamic Republic was the one that turned down the U.S. president.
Senior administration officials told the White House pool about half an hour ago that the White House had offered to have an encounter on the sidelines of UN General Assembly with Obama and Rouhani, but the Iranians informed the U.S. today that it is too complicated for Iranians to do at this point.
There will be no meeting, one official said, according to the White House pool report. It was clear that it was too complicated for them.
They stressed that Secretary of State John Kerry would press relations with his Iranian counterpart.
Still, officials tried to downplay the snub, saying that they were publicly and privately open to having discussions on the margins of UNGA.
The Iranians have an internal dynamic that they have to manage and the relationship with the United States is clearly quite different than the relationship that Iran has with other Western nations, a senior administration official said.

Yet another head fake.
But, but, but, Barry was gonna tell the Iranian president how flexible he can be...
He didn’t want to shake hands with a homosexual muslim. It is an offense in Iran punishable by death.
Once Putin pantsed him he was total international toast!
Yes he is, and that is the way wars are started.
Unfortunately, the Iranian government does not have an unapologetic traitor in office at the moment.
Another cogent point of view.
He, he, tell us what you really think.
Gonna stop the rising of the seas?
Gonna end hate?
Gonna bring us all together?
Gonna do anything? Worthless shoe shine boy?
He did not want to talk with mac daddy because it would be a meeting of two excellent world famous liars.
I suppose nobody told Iranian President Hassan Rouhani that Obama would be happy to bow before him. Maybe even bend over.
Hope you weren’t drinking milk as you read this.
Yes, I know. I get much too intense. The utter loathsomeness, contempt I have for him just takes over me.
But no, I was lovin it. You said it with eloquence.
Thank you. Much appreciated.
Who’s worse? Muzzies in Iran or Hussein? How about both?
If dems can pull in enough third world 'takers' and pay them off by getting them 'to vote their self interest' they'll run the place forever. We're close to a tipping point.
