Citizen Diplomacy With Code Pink

http://tinyurl.com/6tm75r
[b]On Wednesday, November 26, a 39-year-old woman, Fatemeh Haqiqat-Pajouh, was hanged, together with nine male prisoners, in Tehran's infamous Evin prison.

A few days before Fatemeh's execution, Medea Benjamin and Jodie Evans, two wealthy American women and co-founders of Code Pink, arrived in Tehran on a "citizen diplomacy" trip. Well known for their radical stances and for their continued disruption of political events...Benjamin and Evans took their narcissistic roadshow to Iran. [/b]

If you like Code Pink, you'll love this story. If you hate Code Pink, you'll love this story. How do their actions in Iran differ from Obama giving a campaign speech in Germany? Lots of "citizen diplomacy" going on.
