Skip to comments.What Obama has done to us: Iran Picks One-Time Embassy Captor its Next UN Envoy
Posted on 03/31/2014 5:31:27 AM PDT by bestintxas
Iran has named a member of the militant group that held 52 Americans hostage in Tehran for 444 days to be its next ambassador to the United Nations.
The Iranian government has applied for a U.S. visa for Hamid Aboutalebi, Irans former ambassador to Belgium and Italy, who was a member of the Muslim Students Following the Imams Line, a group of radical students that seized the U.S. embassy on Nov. 4, 1979. Imam was an honorific used for Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the leader of the Islamic Revolution.
Relations between the Islamic Republic and the U.S. and its allies are beginning to emerge from the deep freeze that began when the self-proclaimed Iranian students overrun the embassy and took the hostages. The State Department hasnt responded to the visa application, according to an Iranian diplomat.
A controversy over Aboutalebis appointment could spark demands on Capitol Hill and beyond during this congressional election year for the Obama administration to take the unusual step of denying a visa to an official posted to the UN. It also could hamper progress toward a comprehensive agreement to curb Irans nuclear program, which the U.S. and five other world powers are seeking to negotiate with Iran by July 20.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani chose Aboutalebi to serve at the U.N., whose headquarters in New York are considered international soil, after the interim nuclear deal was forged last Nov. 24.

The minute this guy steps off the plane he should be handcuffed and sent to jail awaiting trial for what he did on our soil at our Embassy.
Imagine if the Iranians had pulled this stunt on the Russians or Chinese and tried to send a guy like this as an Ambassador. It simply would not happen. This is an example of Obama’s “leadership” and why many Americans have a modicum of respect for Putin who is clearly a Russian patriot. People have legitimate doubts about our globalist, apologizing President.
for the Obama administration to take the unusual step of denying a visa to an official posted to the UN.
aint goin ta happen...
Tea at the White House is being arranged as I type...
The entire world is laughing at us! I feel like I’m in high school again with a “kick me” signed taped to my back.
I’ll vote for that.
This is a slap in the face of America.
The day a new Attorney General takes office he/she needs to send a squad of cops over to the UN and arrest his sorry ass the minute he sets foot on a public sidewalk.
Really? You would try him in a civilian court? Not my solution.
“Really? You would try him in a civilian court? Not my solution.”
Never said civilian did I?
Guess you are not thinking of military either.
Murder then is what you had in mind?
Well, I think we can agree that he shouldn’t get a visa.
With John Kerry as Sec. of State, we shouldn’t deny any country anybody!!
Should lure the a-hole and throw his @$$ into jail. But we have a traitor as POTUS instead ! So messed up !
Kenyan-born muzzie ping. Thanks bestintxas.
