#1 Speculation time: The O-Team sent a craftily worded letter hinting that they would prefer the Mullahs to “select” anyone other then Short Round for President. That way it would allow for the “appearance” of a complete new era of Bi-lateral negotiations. They probably also insinuated about the possibility of street protests if the election was seen as a sham. And that a crack down on those protesters would make overt talks near impossible. That might explain the Poobah’s reference to foreign agent provocateurs. It might also explain Obama’s reluctance to find his throat until he actually saw the Persian middle finger. Of course, the Mullahs always blame everything on external forces and Obama has proven to be a neophyte on all things foreign – but it’s one angle.

Doubtful. Obama really does believe that the Iranian leadership is made up of reasonable people with legitimate grievances. The letter was probably directed to Khamenei to reinforce that Obama would like to push the reset button regardless of who won the election.

#3 It's not a big deal, but if they ever need to defend themselves, The Washington Times can now point to this and say the broke and exclusive Bad Obama story.

#4 Again, Obama promoted status quo tyranny, while a democratic-revolution brewed. What a bastard!

Rantburg was assembled from recycled algorithms in the United States of America. No trees were destroyed in the production of this weblog. We did hurt some, though. Sorry.
