The Republican Presidential hopeful, Israel-Firster Rep. Michele Bachmann, is a typical ignorant and bigot US politician.
Bachmann tells NBC News’ Jamie Novogrod that if she was US President, she would have closed US Embassy in Tehran. She was responding to the recent raiding of British embassy by Iranian protesters for London’s plan to attack Iran along with Israel.
The idiot doesn’t even know that US Embassy was closed down by the Islamic Revolutionary protesters in 1980 for being a nest of spies. They took 52 American staffers as political prisoners. The students occupying the Embassy building found countless documents proving that it was used by western and Israeli intelligence agencies to sabotage the Islamic Revolution.
Later, Canadian Ambassador in Iran, Kenneth Taylor (a CIA operative) smuggled six of those captive Americans on faked Canadian passports.
Tehran released the remaining American embassy staff in January 1981 after Washington and Tehran reached an accord including release of frozen Iranian assests (US$14 billion). However, after the American arrived to safety – Washington backed off on its release of Iranian money assets promise. Those Iranian assests could be more than US$30 billion by now. Later, Tehran handed over the bodies of eight American soldiers for burial in the US.
Last month, Bachmann had claimed that Iraqis owe US billions of dollars for ‘liberating them’ by murdering 1.5 million Iraqis including 500,000 children.
In September 2011 – Bachmann had claimed that Hizbullah has missile sites in Cuba which the Lebanese Islamists intends to use against Jewish targets in United States.
Islamic regime in Tehran broke off diplomatic relations with US in 1980. Since then, Swiss embassy in Tehran represents US interests while Pakistan embassy in Washington looks after Iranian interests in the US.
