National Security Adviser Calls Out Iran

More

National Security Adviser Tom Donilon called on Iran to allow Iranians the same freedom to protest that Egyptians have had.

"By announcing that they will not allow opposition protests, the Iranian government has declared illegal for Iranians what it claimed was noble for Egyptians," Donilon said in a statement issued by the White House Saturday. "We call on the government of Iran to allow the Iranian people the universal right to peacefully assemble, demonstrate and communicate that's being exercised in Cairo."
