Anniversary Message

Now that I have started writing about how Obama uses YouTube for public diplomacy, I am struck by how different his address to the Iranian people this year is from last year's version. This year he talked somewhat less warmly to Iranian citizens and began to sternly address their leaders instead. Obama complained about refusals of "good faith proposals," the rejection of the U.S. "extended hand" with an Iranian "clenched fist," and the horrific spectacle of the Neda video on the Internet.
