Obama's pro-Iran sympathies

Reader comment on item: Criticisms of the U.S.-led Air Campaign against ISIS

Submitted by Dean M. (United States), Sep 29, 2014 at 16:44

Everything Obama does in foreign policy is to help Iran. Everything he has done has been to help Iran. Why is that so hard to see? Going over the notes again: Valerie Jarrett was born and spent her formative years in Iran and was featured at one Iranian website as "Iranian of the Day;" Kerry has an Iranian son-in-law; Biden has strong ties and support from the pro-Tehran Iranian lobby; Hagel as a Senator voted against sanctions against Iran; Brennan is probably himself a Muslim as well as Obama. Every year Obama wishes Iran Happy Nowruz in Farsi, extolling Iran's cultural accomplishments. When he was elected in 2008, Shiites in Tehran danced in the streets calling Obama, "brother." Iran, after all, was the first country to honor Obama's cultural hero, Malcolm X, with a postage stamp. Hussein, Obama's middle name, was the founder of Shia Islam. Shia Islam has deep roots in Mombassa, Kenya. When Ahmadinejad was President, he made trips to Kenya and Odinga, Obama's "cousin," made trips Tehran to work out agreements, including one to build a nuclear power plant in Kenya. Who reports this in the mainstream media? No one.
