I guest hosted for Frank Gaffney yesterday and had some lively discussions about Iran. Aside from building a nuclear bomb, attempting to dominate the Persian Gulf and the rest of the Middle East and making bad mischief in South America and Africa, they are a model member of the world community. As usual the Obama administration is doing pretty much nothing right on any of these issues.
