WASHINGTON -- The Bush administration today demanded that the Iranian government clarify the role of President-elect Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the 1979 storming of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and the prolonged hostage crisis that followed.

I can only imagine how Clinton or Kerry would have responded to these concerns.
Well probably have this Iranian guy's records before we ever see John Kerry's.
Klintoon would say it was our karma for picking on American Indians.

Me too, Mr. President. Me too.
Carter made "Landslide Mahmoud" what he is today.
Take a look.
I think the media has been trying to compare the wrong guy.
The man in the far right of the picture with the hostage looks more like the new Iranian president. The media has been focusing on the guy holding the hostages arm.
What do you think?

I think Iran is going to get a few night visitors.
soon. before midterm campaigning.
Let's kill em all, to be on the safe side. I can't tell.
Storming a foreign embassy, taking diplomats hostage, and demanding ransom. Sounds like a job for the World Court. The fact that we won't hear a peep about this outrage says enough to convict said World Court.
Ah, good. Hopefully so.
I would think the Bush Administration knew exactly who he was the moment he showed up in the elections. This just gives us an added reason to go in. I say they knew. I say it's a good thing.
Just can't help but wonder if Jimmy Carter and his wonderful group has "certified" the election yet?
Maybe we should let him into our country as we do illegal Mexicans?
Anyone hear from Jimmah lately? Bet he has no comment.
Their reaction: send Jesse Jackson to Iran in a quest for common ground
