    The Prophet (probably HRC) is working inside a scenario which can lead to smart assertiveness following a play nice period, or it is the precursor to appeasement foreign policy. So far I am giving HRC the benefit of the doubt. So far.

    Why not apologize for overthrowing their democracy all those years ago? Or demand payment for the hostage thing, but be ready to pay them for the coup...

    Shall we punish Rome for throwing all those Jews the lions, or what?

    This is a case of the President putting pressure on the judiciary to toss out a legal complaint. The class action suit is by former hostages against Iran. Obama has NO business in it. But then again, he's good at that - sticking his nose in where it doesn't belong instead of doing his job.

    This guy could burn the White House to the ground and y'all would give him a pass.

    Let's see.

    Ronnie gets credit from the wingers for bringing the hostages home. Part of the reason the hostages were released was because we agreed to not let them sue Iran.

    And now some people want us to go back on our word and pretty much insure that throughout the world American words are meaningless.

    Pretty funny.

    Wouldn't it be terrible to betray all the trust that the rest of the world places in America now ? :lol:

    I think the suit was filed by Americans (maybe the people held hostage?) NOT America.

    "The Obama administration has asked a federal judge to throw out a lawsuit against Iran filed by Americans held hostage at the U.S. Embassy in Tehran 30 years ago."

    BLNT.
