Earlier today Iran’s new moderate leader appeared at the UN’s annual General Assembly, where he delivered a highly anticipated speech. President Obama and the international community have taken notice of Dr. Hassan Rouhani’s departure from the hard-line and anti-Western views of his predecessor, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Rouhani seemed to think that America’s greatest foe is the Republican-controlled House.
“How can you be a mortal enemy when there’s so much competition in America’s Republican-Controlled House.” said Dr. Rohani at the UN General Assembly.
The moderate leader of Iran also discussed his country’s suspected nuclear program, allaying American and Israeli fears by offering unique solutions.
