This morning during an appearance on FOXNEWS, Congressman Mike Pence, Chairman of the House Republican Conference, made the following statement regarding the administration’s involvement regarding demonstrations by Iranian dissidents:
"The President has the right to draw the line where he chooses to draw it but I am someone who believes that when Ronald Reagan went to the Brandenburg Gate, he did not say 'Mr. Gorbachev, that wall is none of our business.' He went to the Brandenburg Gate and he said, "Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall." We know from people like Natan Sharanskhy and Alexander Solzhenitsyn that deep in the gulags of the Soviet Union, when Ronald Reagan was willing to call the Soviet Emprie 'the evil empire', it gave encouragement to the people who were fighting tyranny within the Soviet Union."
