Iran has been a thorn in America's side since 1979 when the Iranians kidnapped Americans from the U.S. embassy and held them hostage for 444 days, making a fool out of Jimmy Carter and releasing the hostages moments after Reagan was inaugurated. Now, Reagan was a man who commanded respect from the enemies of America, something for which our current president could never identify.
With the new revelation that Iran was involved in the 9/11 attacks on U.S. soil, everything changes. What will our weak commander-in-chief do now that we know the Iranians have committed an act of war on our homeland? Perhaps, Obama will apologize to the Iranians for alleged offenses from America against the Iranian regime.

Federal Judge: Iran, As Well As Taliban and Al-Qaeda, Responsible For 9/11
"This was an act of war. Yet Iran has not been punished for its role in the 911 attacks. As this new information contines to emerge, the next President of the United States should remove this murderous regime. That should be a campaign promise.
We can be sure that Obama is going to do nothing about this, except maybe film another obsequious video reaching out to the bloody mullahs.
Judge: Iran, Taliban, al Qaeda liable for 9/11 Associated Press
NEW YORK - 'A federal judge has signed a default judgment finding Iran, the Taliban and al Qaeda liable in the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
Judge George Daniels in Manhattan signed the judgment Thursday, a week after hearing testimony in the 10-year-old case. The signed ruling, which he promised last week, came in a $100 billion lawsuit brought by family members of victims of the attacks. He directed a magistrate judge to preside over remaining issues, including fixing compensatory and punitive damages.
Daniels signed findings of fact saying the plaintiffs had established that the 2001 attacks were caused by the support the defendants provided to al Qaeda. The findings also said Iran continues to provide material support and resources to al Qaeda by providing a safe haven for al Qaeda leadership and rank-and-file al Qaeda members.
During last week's open-court hearing, family members of Sept. 11 victims sat through a four-hour presentation from attorneys who cited evidence supporting their claims that Iran actively assisted the hijackers of planes that crashed into the World Trade Center towers, at the Pentagon and into a field in Pennsylvania. Former members of the Sept. 11 Commission and three Iranian defectors also spoke.
It would be near impossible to collect any damages, especially from the Taliban or al Qaeda.
Iran has not commented on the ruling. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has repeatedly denied any Iranian connection in the Sept. 11 attacks or with al Qaeda. Saudi Arabia had been knocked out of the lawsuit, but lawyers filed papers on Thursday to reinstate Saudi Arabia as a defendant.'"
Hey, Mr. Vice-President, ya still think the Taliban is not our enemy?
