I see our detente with Iran is going just swimmingly.
Look, I think it is important that we move toward more normalized relations with Iran. The cold war between Iran and Saudi Arabia has been heating up rapidly in recent weeks after the Saudis executed a Shiite cleric, the Iranians condemned the act and sent protesters against the embassy and Sudan, Bahrain and the UAE broken off diplomatic relations. We can’t take a side in this.
But it’s increasingly clear that the Obama Administration can not carry out this difficult feat of diplomatic jujitsu.
At this point, the sailors need to be returned immediately. Iran is testing us.
