 File under: Govt of Iran 

#1 Who knows that the US instigated and approved the Iranian Revolution in 1979? Ayatollah Khomeni was just a powerless exile until the State Department withdrew their support of the Shah, a staunch US ally.

#2 "The Soviet Union, seeing us so willingly abandon a staunch ally, invaded Afghanistan in December 1979, just six months after Carter and Russian leader Leonid Brezhnev embraced after signing a new arms-control treaty". Carter's Iranian visit and shortly after down goes the Shaw a staunch US ally. The attacks on the Iranian people were far worse under Khomeini. Send Carter over to Iran to represent US and then claim collusion with the our enemies.
