VIDAL URGES OBAMA TO MEET WITH PARSI LEADERS IN IRAN
Posted 7:44pm 12/06/10
Author, playwright and scholar GORE VIDAL has repeated his plea for PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA to meet with Parsi leaders in a Christmas letter to the U.S. leader. In the missive, released via movie website Screenmancer.com, the director reminds Obama he wrote to him about cementing ties with the Persians when the politician was first nominated to run for presidential office, and he now thinks it's important for the Democratic leader to plan a special trip to the Middle East. Vidal writes, "I continue to believe it would be good politics in the truest sense for you to meet with the Parsi leaders of what used to be called the Persian Empire; strike a note of solidarity with them, one empire with another. "Meet them at the Great King's tomb at Pasargadae, establish a union between the Persian population and the American. I brought up this subject not weeks ago in an interview on satellite television, beamed to millions across present-day Iran, to the seeming delight of the local hosts. "I can only see good coming from your leading in this fashion: bring together the heirs of the Great King that are still considered great in that part of the world." (KL/WNWC/MT) *WENN
