I think this is a smart stance for Obama to take on the Iran election sham. For starters the US simply cannot say anything about botched elections... lol!
"Hello Pot... This is The Kettle".
Secondly, the US simply aren't the world sheriff. The CIA have meddled with Iran before and nothing good came of it. I think it's time the US just worried about the crap that's happening within their own borders.

I think it is best to put it off until the situation blows up and then take drastic measures decrying that the liberal media stopped us from doing something about it sooner and then end it with a nuke and live happily ever after.
