I am astonished that the decision to act or not act came down to exactly one person. Where was the president in all this? Why did General Clark roll over on this?
If that is in fact the case here, then something egregious took place and it ranks with Carter's folly in not supporting the Shah.
A full investigation is badly needed to address these claims and certainly we need to gear from Clark and Obama. Was he not told that an agreement had been struck?.
