This sums up a sorry state of foreign affairs:

No, seriously, the White House is dismissing the Ayatollah’s “death to America” cheerleading because it’s for purposes of national political expediency and he doesn’t really mean it — sort of like Khamenei’s version of “if you like your plan you can keep your plan”:

CNN: “As for the Ayatollah’s ‘death to America’ comments, administration officials are suggesting those kinds of remarks are aimed at an Iranian domestic political audience. What matters, officials cautioned, is what they agree to at the bargaining table.”

Josh Earnest said that kind of talk is exactly why a deal must be struck:

“Those kinds of comments only underscore why it is so critically important that the United States and the international community succeed in preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon,” Earnest responded. “And the best way for us to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapons is sitting down at the negotiating table and getting Iran to make very specific commitments that would prevent them from obtaining nuclear weapons.”

That real reassuring coming from the architects of the anti-terror “success story” in Yemen.

They don’t call it “March madness” just because of basketball.
