    Just as Obama blamed a video for our last embassy attack and resulted in the creator of the video going to jail. Authoritarians deflect blame on those who expose them or can be turned into a scapegoat in order to deflect blame. When I saw the cell phone video I was thinking this guy is in a lot of trouble.

    fake news, Obama did nothing about that, the guy violated his parole, nothing to do with Obama - kinda like Pizzagate, some on the right will believe anything

    if your ordered by the court not to use the internet as part of your parole, then you release a video on the internet and it gets national attention, your parole officer is gonna notice

    but it did come out the video did play a role

    At least they didn't just roll up and kill him, like they have with 1,500 protesters.

    Seems this time they were not going to kill anyone, I only heard of shoots to the bottom part of the body.

    I can see many of the Leftists here have no problem with it, because it helped the Orange Man.

    I don't think Islamists do re-education, Bucky. That's a "progressive" thing.

    If he's lucky he'll spend the next 10 years getting his face shoved into clogged toilets in Evin Prison.

    Sounds like what both of our parties do arrest those that bust out our govt including the press.

    I wonder if the pathology created by partisan hatred is treatable so as to be cured giving those folks back a brain that functions sanely?

    How do you figure that video helped “Orange Man”? In response to an assassination the Iranians attacked and as a result civilians died. Both the US and Iran look bad here.

    Iran's response were strikes on Iraqi Military bases. Does this not ring a bell?

    Their colossal @#%-up was shooting down a civilian airliner leaving from an Iranian airport carrying Iranian citizens because they were on high alert because of what THEY just did.

    Only in Lefty world is the U.S. responsible for what the Iranians did on Iranian soil, where the U.S. did not tread.

    Why you asking if anything is ringing a bell? Did you not think were talking about the same incident?

    Do you really think the US taking steps to provoke Iran had nothing to do with the plane getting shot down?
