Confusing an Iranian terrorist with a diplomat -- Obama, Kerry may issue a U.N. visa to a Tehran hostage-taker -- By Tammy Bruce, The Washington Times

As a sign that we have officially entered the Twilight Zone phase of the Obama administration, the State Department is actually finding it difficult to say whether or not it will issue a visa for Iran's newly appointed "envoy" to the United Nations, a man who also happens to be widely recognized as a terrorist.

This new envoy for Iran, Hamid Aboutalebi, has admitted being involved with the terrorist group that stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and took 52 diplomats hostage for 444 days in 1979-1980.

We have a policy barring terrorists from being granted visas, and yet in responding to the outrage engendered by the revelation that Mr. Aboutalebi played a role in that obscene act, the most the State Department could muster was a whimper that the situation "troubled" them and that they "object" to it.

That's sort of like how the Obama administration is troubled by, and objects to, chemical weapons in Syria, Russia's taking of Crimea, the Taliban killing, well, everyone, al Qaeda taking over large swaths of Iraq, and North Korea shooting at South Korea.

At this rate of being unable or unwilling to perform, I'm beginning to think President Obama and the men on Capitol Hill are suffering from a chronic case of Low T.

According to ABC, when asked specifically if it would issue the visa for the Iranian envoy-terrorist to live and work in New York, the State Department refused to say how it would handle the situation, noting the United States was "obligated to admit the chosen representatives of member states to U.N. headquarters in New York."

Really? I'm sure Pakistan is kicking itself right now. They could have saved themselves so much trouble if they simply named Osama bin Laden as their U.N. ambassador.
