Iranian Reaction to Obama Video Message Lukewarm at Best

The Ayatollah reacted to Obama's Video Message saying he will wait to see real changes in U. S. Foreign policy.

From the NY Times:

“They chant the slogan of change but no change is seen in practice,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a speech before a crowd of tens of thousands in the northeastern holy city of Mashhad.
Still, he left the door open to better ties with America, saying “should you change, our behavior will change, too.”

He also took exception with Obama wishing the Iranians a New Year message and calling them terrorists in the same breath.

So the volley begins...
