Ted Cruz’s bill banning Iranian terrorist from diplomatic post meets unanimous support in House and Senate

Ted CruzBy Tom Toth

Ted Cruz’s bill banning a known Iranian terrorist—and champion of the Iranian hostage crisis—from appointment as the American ambassador from Iran is likely to make it to Barack Obama’s desk after unanimous passage through the House and Senate.

Hamid Aboutalebi was a primary participant in the 1979 Iranian hostage crisis. The decision to appoint Aboutalebi to a diplomatic post is seemingly a thumb in the eye of the United States, given his hostile takeover of sovereign American diplomatic territory—expecting diplomatic  rights that he participated in denying Americans for 444 days in 1979.

The bill, which would ban Aboutalebi from entry into the United States, seems likely to be signed into law by the President, after White House press secretary Jay Carney called the appointment of the Iranian terrorist “not viable.”
