A senior White House official on Saturday criticized Iran's refusal to let opponents of the regime hold a rally in support of Arab uprisings.
"By announcing that they will not allow opposition protests, the Iranian government has declared illegal for Iranians what it claimed was noble for Egyptians," National Security Advisor Tom Donilon said in a statement.
"We call on the government of Iran to allow the Iranian people the universal right to peacefully assemble, demonstrate and communicate that's being exercised in Cairo," he added.

It would be interesting to test the US government this way. Have 3 million people show up in DC and ask for the President to step down. Obviously, not going to happen, but would be totally unexpected and interesting to see what BS would come out in context of the Egyptian protests.

Yea America has been getting more and more annoying with this crap. I am sick and tired of reading about how we demand, we believe, we think, and we insists that are being issued by our government as of late. If someone else told us what to do we would get all pissy and probably threaten to turn there country to a glass parking lot.

So first we invovle ourselves TOO much with Iran, and we need to stay out of their business, and everything that goes on with them is just some covert operation.
But when it comes to Egypt we didnt do enough?
Someone wana explain to me why some of the people riding both sides of THAT fence cant see their own glaring hypocrisy?
People are losing all common sense

Perhaps this guy has already forgotten about the G20 summit in Pittsburg where folks were being roughed up and rounded up like animals, or the "Free speech zones" during the last build-up around election time, where protestors had to be quarantined and caged off BLOCKS AWAY from designated sites where they were protesting certain candidates, so in essence their voices were basically SILENCED, because nobody near the actual candidates or crowd could hear them?
Ah, how soon we seem to forget...
"Do as we say, not as we do."
Seems to me someone also has a HUGE agenda going on in the M.E. right now, and it's almost becoming PATHETICALLY obvious what they are up to anymore...
