I think it's time we flip the table on Iran, and we have a golden opportunity to, although I'm sure we won't.

Iran has selected a new ambassador to serve at the United Nations in New York City, if you haven't heard. His name is Hamid Aboutalebi. It means nothing to us, but it means a great deal to a lot of Iranians.

Aboutalebi was a member of the Islamic student group that held 52 Americans hostage in Tehran for 444 days back in 1979. He said he was only a translator and negotiator for the terrorist hostage takers. Now he wants to be a diplomat in the U.S.

Let's prove that we're bigger than they are.

Issue him a visa, let him into the United States, provide him with a security detail that can escort him to one of our most beautiful states in the mountains. Heck, Hamid, we'll even provide you room for a few years, and if YOU need a translator, I'm sure one of the more patriotic inmates at our Supermax prison in Florence, Colorado will be glad to help you understand things.

We won't do that, I know, but at the very least we should slam the door in this guy's face and tell Iran we don't issue visas to terrorists. Pick another Ambassador or stay home.

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz from Texas has promised legislation that would do just that.
