To Detente or to Not?

To Detente or to Not?

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani took a page out of President Vladimir Putin’s book yesterday and ran an op-ed in the Washington Post.  Now while we think op-eds are a great way to get press, and to reach out to people, there are a couple of issues with this, namely it’s written by the wrong guy.

As we all know, there’s only one Supreme Leader in Iran, and that’s the Ayatollah.

When Khameini decides to write an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal to round out the whole trifecta of East Coast newspaper giants, we’ll pay attention.  Heck, we’ll buy an armload and distribute them so people can hear the good word, but until that happens I’m not believing anything that Rouhani says, because he’s not the one in charge.
