Sen. Barack Obama and his newly-picked running mate, Sen. Joe Biden of
Delaware, may have sparred during the primaries. But on one issue they are
firmly united: the need to forge closer ties to the government of Iran.
Kaveh Mohseni, a spokesman for the Student Movement Coordination Committee
for Democracy in Iran, calls Biden ³a great friend of the mullahs.²
He notes that Biden¹s election campaigns ³have been financed by Islamic
charities of the Iranian regime based in California and by the Silicon Iran
network,² a loosely-knit group of wealthy Iranian-American businessmen and
women seeking to end the U.S. trade embargo on Iran.
³In exchange, the senator does his best to aid the mullahs,² Mohseni argues.
Biden¹s ties to pro-Tehran lobbying groups are no secret. But so far, the
elite media has avoided even mentioning the subject.
