In Reversal, Obama Says Iran Is A Threat

By on 5.19.08 | 3:04PM

I suppose some campaign staffer must have alerted Obama to the fact that if he says Iran is not a serious threat, it's one less thing he can blame on President Bush and John McCain, so now he's singing a different tune:

"Iran is a grave threat. It has an illicit nuclear program. It supports terrorism across the region and militias in Iraq. It threatens Israel's existence. It denies the Holocaust," he said. "The reason Iran is so much more powerful than it was a few years ago is because of the Bush-McCain policy of fighting in Iraq and refusing to pursue direct diplomacy with Iran. They're the ones who have not dealt with Iran wisely."
