Iran: as usual December 1st 2012

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan E. Rice and her husband own stakes in companies that have until recently done business with Iran.
This leads to new questions from those opposed to her possible nomination as secretary of state.
These companies are global multinationals.One of the biggest is between $50,000 and $100,000 in Royal Dutch Shell., according to Rice’s disclosure statement for 2011. The international oilcompany stopped buying crude oil from Iran early this year as sanctions got tightened.
Several ethics advisers said they did not see an immediate problem with the Rice’s investments for her appointment.
Meanwhile USA Senate approved new sanctions on Iran.

Political prisoner Omid Behroozi who was arrested 15 months ago, has been severely beaten and mistreated and as a result he became deaf in his left ear.
