Anniversary of Iran 2009 uprising and Obama’s appeasement of the regime

Jun 3rd, 2015

Iranian American Forum, June 3, 2015
While millions of Iranians were in the streets opposing the regime, Obama ignored this historic moment and continued his outreach to the Iranian rulers. His appeasing attitude was a signal that the US is so eager to reach a nuclear deal and befriend the regime that it would tolerate Mullahs’ brutal repression in Iran and hegemonic policies across the region

Hamid Yazdan Panah, Jan. 30, 2015

This time he uses ISIS as the boogeyman that can only be defeated if sanctions are not imposed on Tehran.

State Department the bastion of appeasement toward Iran

Hassan Dai, Kayvan Kaboli, 17 November 2012
In early 2009, when newly elected President Obama was forming his administration, there were some indications that Dennis Ross would be selected as the “Iran envoy” in the State Department.
