I don’t believe anything our government says about the Middle East.

Good idea.

I lived in the middle east five years and KNOW that Americans and our government haven't CLUE ONE about the middle east. Never have. Never will.

My husband concluded after three months there that the middle easterners simply THINK differently about EVERYTHING than we do. They have TOTALLY different values and expectations about EVERYTHING.

My read: we have nothing in common with them but our vertebral column.

Honestly, what the hell does the State Dept. take us for? We know about Al-Nusra, Hezbullah, etc. more than their own staff does. It’s obvious they’re lying to try to put more pressure on Iran, and Iran is just laughing at our ignorance.

Let the centrifuges keep spinning, Obama.
