Obama must have breathed a sigh of relief audible throughout the entire White House at receiving the news of their release.
Yes, the hostages were British and not American, but the effects of a prolonged story would've further reconfirmed the image of Obama relieving Carter of the title "Worst U.S. President Ever." Not that Obama hasn't upstaged Carter for the title even with this story ending positively after a few short hours. He's beat him to it a long, long time ago, actually within the first hundred days of his presidency with the passage of his monstrous stimulus.
Never mind Obamacare and the rest of his luggage.
Here's the drama of this morning in a nutshell for those of you who have missed it or received only some murky details, as reported by The Daily Caller.
Hard-line Iranian students stormed the embassy in Tehran on Tuesday, bringing down the Union Jack flag, burning an embassy vehicle and throwing documents from windows in scenes reminiscent of the 1979 attack on the U.S. embassy there.
As mentioned above, six employees were taken hostage but were released after two hours after the Iranian police, who had been standing by all this time, finally intervened.
Obama has condemned Iran (finally!) and British Foreign Minister William Hague said amongst others that the British hold the Iranian government responsible for the storming of its embassy, and warned that there would be "further and serious consequences."
In other news regarding Iran, an explosion occurred yesterday at a nuclear plant causing serious destruction. This explosion follows an explosion that occurred two weeks ago at the site of another nuclear plant which satellite images show to be totally demolished.
Although no clear information is available as to what has led to the blasts plenty of speculation abounds. You can visit Yid With Lid for more details.
