Obama's Double Standard on Elections in Afghanistan & Iran

So it now appears the Obama Administration won't consider granting General McChrystal's request for more troops until the smoke clears in last August's disputed election in Afghanistan.

Yet the Obama Administration exercised no such caution when it came to Iran's elections this past June. Despite the massive protests which resulted in swift punishment for those who dared to raise an objection, the Obama Administration recognized Ahmadinejad's "re-election" and is engaging them unabated.

So what the Obama Administration is saying is that we will engage a government that is a sworn enemy of the United States but that we won't engage a government that is ostensibly our ally.
