Iranian Clerics Adopt Obama-Style Diplomacy

This was reported in today's Detroit Free Press:

U.S. ambassador: Iran toying with Iraq security talks


BAGHDAD — U.S. Ambassador Ryan Crocker is criticizing Iran for trying to block a new security agreement between the United States and Iraq.

In an interview today, Crocker said a steady stream of public statements from clerical and political figures in Tehran make it clear that Iran is interfering in the bilateral negotiations between Iraq and the United States. The talks must conclude by the end of 2008.

The ambassador said Iran wants to keep Iraq "off-balance" to be able to control events in its Arab neighbor to its satisfaction.The new agreement would govern the long-term status of U.S. forces in Iraq and replace a temporary UN Security Council resolution.


Who do these Iranians think they are? Barack Obama? (“Two-Faced Obama Tries to Slow Iraq Withdrawal, While Telling Voters We Need to Get Out Now”).
