Clinton says U.S. supported Iran protesters “behind the scenes” / WashingtonTV

Washington, 10 August (WashingtonTV)—US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Sunday defended Washington’s reaction to the post-election unrest in Iran , saying that the U.S. did a lot “behind the scenes” to show support for those demonstrators contesting the disputed election result.

In an interview with CNN broadcast yesterday, Clinton responded to suggestions that the U.S. had not done enough to support the protesters, by saying that the Obama administration did not want to “get between the legitimate protests and demonstrations of the Iranian people and the leadership.”

The administration also did not want to be used as a tool by the Iranian government to unify the county against the protesters, she added. >>>
