    Michele Bachmann Campaign Denies Making Mistake About U.S. Embassy In Iran

    Michele Bachmann's camp is claiming that she was "fully aware" of the fact that the U.S. hasn't had a functional embassy in Iran since 1980, despite earlier comments that appeared to suggest otherwise.

    Speaking to supporters in Iowa Wednesday, Bachmann talked about the recent conflict in the Iranian capital of Tehran between protesters and the British embassy, which has led to the closure of the facility and the evacuation of diplomats.

    "That's exactly what I would do [if I were president]," Bachmann said. "We wouldn't have an embassy in Iran. I wouldn't allow that to be there."

    But the U.S. severed diplomatic ties with Iran in 1980, following the Iran Hostage Crisis. It vacated the embassy, recalled personnel and hasn't redeployed them since.

    Because she didn't make a mistake. Or are you honestly claiming she didn't remember the interview the day before when she asked why the UK still had an embassy in Iran since we didn't.

    But rather than give her the benefit of the doubt, you guys would prefer ripping a statement out of context and laughing. and you guys would be the first ones screaming if someone did the same to Obama or Biden.

    The Iran threat
    December 1, 2011 - Tehran is not worried about international repercussions, and why should it be? The West has hesitated to take the steps that could cripple the regime's economic base and stymie its nuclear ambitions.
