Iran questions Obama's 'change'

Iran questions Obama's 'change' [Oh. God. *Everyone* does.] 04 Aug 2010 Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has criticized his American counterpart Barack Obama for failing to realize his campaign trail promise of "change." "They (the Americans) announced that they had pulled out part of their forces from Iraq in recent days and claimed that their move was in line with their slogan of 'change,'" Fars News Agency quoted President Ahmadinejad as saying on Wednesday. "You said you would withdraw all your troops from Iraq, why is it that some of them are still in this country? Secondly, where are you relocating your forces from Iraq?" ...At a speech in the western Hamadan Province, Ahmadinejad went on to say, "Real change means that you take your forces... and leave our region."  [*Exactly.* I couldn't agree more. --LRP]
