Media: An American Senator blames his country
Tim Kaine (the junior United States Senator from Virginia): Some of my colleagues talk as if Iran has no right to mistrust us. We did remove a prime minister by interfering and allowed a dictator to become the king of Iran. It was we who sheltered that dictator after the Iranian revolution.
It was the United States that gave Iraq military information during Saddam’s war with Iran to carry out chemical attacks against the Iranian people. It was we who targeted an Iranian passenger plane with a war missile.
