    SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras -- In a new overture to Iran, the Obama administration has authorized U.S. embassies around the world to invite Iranian officials to Independence Day parties they host on or around July 4th.

    A State Department cable sent to all U.S. embassies and consulates late last week said that U.S. diplomats could ask their Iranian counterparts to attend the festivities, which generally feature speeches about American values, fireworks, hot dogs and hamburgers.

    The notice, sent on Friday, said that the posts "may invite representatives from the government of Iran" to the events, a State Department official said Tuesday, quoting from the document. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss an internal communication.

    It was not immediately clear how many embassies and consulates would actually invite Iranian diplomats to the July 4 parties or whether any Iranians would accept the invitations.

    The cable was first reported by The New York Times.

    The move comes amid the administration's ongoing efforts to engage Iran in variety of venues, including formal diplomatic meetings over its nuclear program, violence in Iraq and the situation in Afghanistan.

    But Iran has given mixed responses to the overtures, which began early in the administration when President Barack Obama recorded a videotaped greeting to the Iranian people and its leaders for their new year.

    Gee ... what a shock. Obama is a sellout. HE shouldn't be allowed to celebrate the 4th of July since independence is definitely NOT anything he's about.

    I guess that's Barack Obama's version of Tea Parties.

    After they both get done enjoying their hot dogs, Obama and Ahmadinejad can sit down and talk about how they are going to establish Iran's hegemony in the Middle East.

    Actually Iran has already shot of it's fireworks--a missle right up Obama's arse last weekend. I guess that was their RSVP on the July 4th invitation.

    I hear those mullah's are party animals.

    Hope they bring some of those Iranian babes, too.
