What’s A Fourth Of July Party Without Iranians?

After sending out invitations to Iranian diplomats to attend Fourth of July celebrations, the Obama administration decided late yesterday to take back that offer:

“As you all know many weeks ago the administration extended an invitation to celebrate the freedom that this country enjoys. not surprisingly based on what we see in Tehran, no one has RSVP’d,” said White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.

“Understand that July 4th allows us to celebrate the freedom and liberty that we enjoy. I don’t think it’s surprising that no one has signed up to come given the events of the last few days. Those invitations will be no longer extended.

So,  about three weeks ago the Obama administration sent Iranian diplomats invitations to celebrate the Fourth of July. The Iranian election was nearly two weeks ago. Since then, the Iranian government has ordered a crackdown on protesters, and many people have been brutalized as well as killed. As early as this Monday, State Department spokesman Ian Kelley said the invite would stand. Yet, not one Iranian diplomat has accepted the administrations offer. And now the Obama administration is rescinding the offer to attend the Fourth of July ceremonies that the Iranians have absolutely no intention of attending.

That’s some mighty fine Presidenting there, Obama. I guess it’s not only the Iranians that have hardliners in their government. “Hey Achmad, you really aught to stop beating, torturing, shooting and killing your citizens. And you really should try some of this arugula on your hotdog, it’s to die for.”

    Everyone knows how Iranians love barbecue and John Phillip Sousa, this one’s gotta really hurt.

    What a weakling that Reagan was in retrospect.
