As long as Obama was discreet and circumspect in his comments, waiting to see how events would unfold before saying anything controversial,
Ahmadinejad could be satisfied that the U.S. was letting Iran settle its own internal affairs.
Now that Obama has been forced by events in Iran to speak out more strongly, Ahmadinejad has begun to portray him as an evil power seeking to subvert
Obama had little choice; he could no longer be just a spectator of the outrages being perpetrated against the Iranian people. But as soon as he did
that, the Iranian propaganda machine rushed in.
It is true that both Bush and Obama have had similar concerns about Iran and its threat to world peace. It does not follow, though, that the two are
identical, or have the same views or agendas.
Ahmadinejad is just using guilt by association to try to turn the Iranian people against the U.S. and Great Britain.
