Iran's Khamenei Response To Obama: A REAL Interpretation

As we all know, US mainstream media sucks. So, it was no surprise to me that the headlines covering Khamenei's response to Obama largely said that Khamenei "rebuffed" Obama. Even the Huffington Post, I'm disappointed to say, had, and still has, the following headline:

Iran's Supreme Leader Dismisses Obama Overtures

So, they suck too.

To get the actual interpretation of Khamenei's response, go to Juan Cole's post, more appropriately entitled:

Khamenei Adopts a Wait and See Attitude to Obama;
"If You Change Your Attitude, We Will Change Ours"

Also, Juan Cole has a new book out, Engaging The Muslim World, which somebody needs to place directly into Obama's hands. If anyone knows how to do that, please do so. Meanwhile, you can buy Juan's book here (and I can make fifty-three cents, maybe):
