Homayoun explained that he has never called for violence or terrorism of any kind against the Iranian government.

"Never," he said. "Even if the Iranian regime changes, we are encouraging people not to seek revenge. We are anti-terrorism."

I’ve been on the watch for something like this since Obama gave Interpol access to this country! There’s stuff going on that’s truly scares me. We need to really shine the light on this one.

Yes… Because we all know what happens when one goes defensive… We need to stay in the offense, and stay organized enough to challenge this Admin with several subjects at a time…
Cram the issues… And this is one of them…

PS: We don’t have media coverage…But hey, only Holder bases policy derived from the Media...

This is why Obama gave INTERPOL incredible power in the USA.

Obama is a plant against America. (Is anyone surprised?)

What incredible power?

AFAIK all Interpol is is a liaison organization between national police forces, an information exchange.

They have no actual police powers as such.
