On the 1953 overthrow of Musaddiq, Obama’s apologies/moral equivalence are incredible. He does not realize that the current Islamist leadership in Iran ALSO opposed Musaddiq, because they saw him as too close to the communist party. Nor was Musaddiq a democrat. He was a demagogue, not opposed to inciting mob violence to intimidate and punish opponents. He was not Thomas Jefferson, he was Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
