>>> congresswoman michele bachmann likes to brag about her seat on the house intelligence committee , but so far the minnesota republican isn't showing too much intelligence. you see, at an event in waverly, iowa bachmann accused president obama of allowing iran to develop nukes. and it went downhill from there.
>> unfortunately, president obama gave the head of -- of iran the luxury of time to develop that weapon. and he met with them with no preconditions. that's the problem that we have. i won't do that as president of the united states . you may have heard that there's a break-in at the british embassy and the british had to pull their people out. that's exactly what i would do. we wouldn't have an american embassy in iran . i wouldn't allow that to be there because they are a state sponsor of terror.
>> of course, there is no american embassy in iran . it closed down 30 years ago when a group of islamic ? revolutionaries took it over and held 52 americans hostage for 444 days . it was kind of a big deal back then. something a presidential candidate and member of the house intelligence committee should probably know about. well, bachmann 's campaign is trying to clean up the mess by denying she made a mistake at all. they released the following statement. "she was agreeing with the actions taken by the british to secure their embassy personnel and was speaking in hypothetical." "that if she was president of the united states and if we had an embassy in iran she would have taken the same action as the brits. her remarks are being taken out of context." nice try. but i ain't buying it. we just played the entire clip. nobody cut anything up. that clip is the way it was in context, in its full, in its entirety. she's an airhead. the only thing bachmann made clear was that she is still spouting unintelligent psycho talk.
