Time to go to plan "b"
So it turns out that the new President of Iran had nothing to do with the 1979 hostage crisis:
Sources: CIA finds Iranian president likely not hostage-taker
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A CIA report has determined with "relative certainty" that new Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was not involved in the taking of U.S. hostages in 1979, two government officials told CNN.
Of course, even though it's been discredited, we can expect at least SOME on the right to use it as a justification for invading Iran anyway. Just like with Iraq: the Nigerian uranium deal that never happened, the ties to al-Qaeda that never occurred, and the aluminum tubes that were for artillery pieces, not nuclear processing.
