The Obama administration has cut funding for pro-democracy and human rights programs in Iran, reversing years of efforts during the Bush administration to help develop a civil society, congressional sources told Newsmax this week.

“It sounds like the Iranians complained in Geneva and we acceded to their demands,” a former senior government official familiar with the pro-democracy programs told Newsmax.

Once again Obama and Hillary are determined to destroy any attempts at the Pro-Democracy movement in Iran as they side with Russia. Are either of them ever going to come down on the side of Democracy? We have our doubts as both the backgrounds are deep rooted in Alinsky teachings which do not bode well for Americans. Every day this Administration makes it clear to Americans that they have a progressive agenda which will lead into socialism expecting all our previous enemies to love us. Stupid philosophy that only weakens America.
