We need to respect Iranian society in this troubled time of charges about the fairness of the recent election. Obama is doing exactly the right thing, not interfering in an Iranian matter.

Americans who believe in "American exceptionalism" try to say that the U.S. has a responsibility to declare on the side of Moussavi and the Greens. But this presupposes that Americans are smarter than Iranians.

After having interfered with Iran and its society for the last 100 years or more, the U.S. should let Iranians handle this current problem, and trust in Iranians to do the right thing, instead of attempting to dictate to them what they should do.
