Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Obama's Iranian Policy

Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton has recently admitted that President Obama's position on Iran is flawed and and essentially a failure. Specifically the Secretary was speaking to the nuclear threat, however there is another side to the Iranian story.

The administration's policy of extending the "olive branch" if you will to the extremist and oppressive Islamic Republic of Iran is befuddling. There is a significantly large segment of the Iranian population that is opposed to it's misguided leadership and would welcome the support of a true Republic such as the United States supporting their efforts to change their government.

In the following video Iranian protesters are calling out to President Obama, and indeed all Americans: "Obama, Obama, are you with the regime or with us?"




I think we now the answer to their question.

And as to the nuclear threat Iran will ultimately pose; here is what Secretary Clinton had to say supported by former United Nations Ambassador John Bolton.




Given the above there may be an opportunity to improve relations with the Iranian people at large (I know several and they are warm and reasonable people), and diffuse the growing crisis if handled properly.

If the President finds a way to send the right message to the Iranian people, and begins dealing with the regime from a position of strength and less from a position of perceived weakness and lack of commitment, the combination could prove to be powerful.

We will likely have to wait, and wait, and wait, to see what his ultimate determination is.
