Our Pusillanimous State Department: Khamenei's Latest Comment About Holocaust

The State Department has gotten involved in a war of words with Steve Emerson's Investigative Project on Terrorism.over their reaction (or lack thereof) to a comment downplaying the Holocaust by Iranian leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in the past few days.

So the State Department has no reaction to a statement made by Khamenei on March 20 on  the occasion of the Persian new year questioning the Holocaust and again threatening to wipe Israel off the map, but because spokeswoman Marie Harf comes up with an appropriate comment on the 26th -in answer to a question- that is supposed to refute the IPT's claims?

And isn't it interesting that while the Iranian leader is using the occasion of the Persian new year to question the Holocaust and threaten Israel, President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry are using the occasion to send their greetings to the Iranian people and announce an increase in the number of Iranian students being granted visas to come to the US-from the nation that is the leading state sponsor of terrorism in the world?

Whatever happened to Obama's pledge to speak truth to those who deny the Holocaust?
