Obama Withdraws July 4 Party Invitations to Iranians

US withdraws July 4 party invitations to Iranians


The Obama administration has rescinded an offer for Iranian envoys to attend U.S. embassy Fourth of July parties as the violent crackdown in Tehran continues.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Wednesday notified diplomats and other department employees overseas that her earlier invitations had been withdrawn.

"Unfortunately, circumstances have changed and participation by Iranian diplomats would not be appropriate in light of the unjust actions that the president and I have condemned," she said in her message sent overseas. "For invitations which have been extended, posts should make clear that Iranian participation is no longer appropriate in the current circumstances. For invitations which have not been extended, no further action is needed."

Clinton had authorized U.S. envoys abroad some weeks ago to invite Iranian diplomats to attend the annual celebration. Her authorization was required because Washington has no formal diplomatic relations with Iran, department spokesman Ian Kelly said.

Presidential spokesman Robert Gibbs noted earlier in the day that the invitations were withdrawn.

"Given the events of the past many days, those invitations will no longer be extended," Gibbs said.

No Iranian diplomat had accepted an invitation from U.S. diplomatic posts abroad to attend embassy Fourth of July parties, according to the State Department.

Wild Thing's comment......

LMAO I am so sorry I can't hel but laugh.

Obama invited them then invited them again WHILE the protests were going on , they never responded, never accepted his invitation soooooooooo Obama withdraws his invitation.

Now what is wrong with this picture? haha Did Obama withdraw his invitation because of all the horrible things they are doing to those protesting? NOPE

Did Obama withdraw his invitation because he realized what a huge mistake it was to invite terrorists to OUR July 4th celebrations? NOPE

He withdrawl because they would not say they would come, they did NOT respond at all. hahahhaaa

I am glad they are not coming but the farce is so obvious it just has me laughing.

Maybe since Obama love terrorists sooooo much he can invite Bill Ayers now instead, that way he can still be around terrorists and in doing so give the middle finger to the country he is supposed to serve and protect.

Bitin' my tongue again. Doesn't look like unilateral capitulation is working for Obungus. 'always a bridesmaid, never a bride' Hussein was snubbed at the altar. Listen up Obama, it was that other Black Muslim who coined the phrase 'I am the Greatest.'

Well, they can always have a halal party at our former embassy in Teheran that they invaded in '79.

Where obama is not dishonest, he is stupid. That he would think a bunch of enemies would want to celebrate American Independence with us is really streatching it. At best they would just like to see the inside of our embassy grounds.
