The Arab Spring brings Islamist regimes into power and Obama supports them, the Green Revolution was to overthrow an Islamist regime and he gives them almost no support. That’s everything we need to know.
Via Beltway Confidential:
President Obama’s Treasury Department sanctioned two top Iranian military leaders yesterday for “serious human rights abuses” perpetrated during and since the crackdown on the Green Revolution protestors in 2009, and the State Department — almost 900 days after the crackdown — touts this as an example of the United States “steadfast support” for the Iranian people.
“These designations are a sign of the United States’ steadfast support for the people of Iran,” State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland said in a statement today, “as they continue to seek accountability from the Iranian government and freedom from abuse by senior Iranian officials.”
