"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

Heh heh! Sorry, a little bit of sinful glee here. Iran has banned Christiane Amanpour. I've always found her stories, as a supposed disinterested observer, to be excessively slanted and her sucking up to murderous dictators just so she can get the story, to be very slanted. I also liked the time when Arafat hung up on her (that was Christiane, right?)

A British diplomat in Tehran told Reuters: "The facts are that the Iranians do not want her to come into the country and she has had to get off the plane in Kuwait. They have an exclusion order against her, and they have refused to reconsider it for this trip," the diplomat added.
