MIKE PENCE SAYS THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION NEEDS TO STAND UP FOR THE PROTESTERS IN IRAN AS THEY STRUGGLE FOR DEMOCRACY.
THIS AFTER SEVERAL DAYS OF VIOLENT DEMONSTRATIONS FOLLOWING PRESIDENT MAHMOUD AHMADINEJAD'S CONTESTED RE- ELECTION WIN.
THE REPUBLICAN INDIANA LAWMAKER -- WHO IS A MEMBER OF THE FOREIGN AFFAIRS COMMITTEE -- SAYS HE INTRODUCED A BILL TO SHOW SUPPORT FOR THE "DISSIDENTS" WHO HAVE THE RIGHT TO CHOOSE THEIR LEADER.
PENCE says..."The American cause is freedom and in that cause American must never be silent and I've introduced a resolution here on Capitol Hill ... I'm talking to my Republican and Democrat colleagues ... about opportunity for the American people through their elected representatives to express our unqualified support for those brave men and women who are risking their liberty and even their lives, taking to the streets on behalf of freedom. They're demonstrating for free elections, for the freedom of expression, and as we have done so many times throughout the history of this nation I think the American people long for the opportunity to stand up, from our people to the people of Iran, and say we are with you in spirit as you stand for freedom in the elections in your own country."
IRAN'S ELITE TWELVE-MEMBER PANEL OF SENIOR ISLAMIC CLERGY AND JURISTS HAVE INVITED THE FOUR PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES TO A SPECIAL MEETING ON SATURDAY TO AIR THEIR CONCERNS.
AND, THE GUARDIAN COUNCIL SAID IT HAS STARTED QUOTE "CAREFUL EXAMINATION" OF SOME SIX HUNDRED FORTY COMPLAINTS SUBMITTED AFTER THE VOTE.
THOSE COMPLAINTS INCLUDE SHORTAGE OF BALLOT PAPERS, PRESSURE ON VOTERS TO SUPPORT A PARTICULAR CANDIDATE AND THE BARRING OF CANDIDATES' REPRESENTATIVES FROM POLLING STATIONS.
