Iran is sliding into a military dictatorship – Hillary Clinton

Iran's nuclear intentions may have also been the driving force behind another diplomatic tour - this time U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's trip to the Middle East.

While in Saudi Arabia, she said that Iran is sliding into a military dictatorship.

But RT contributor Wayne Madsen says she should be careful when labeling countries.

“I wonder who is in charge of the State Department over there because she said Iran is becoming a military dictatorship,” Madsen says. “While military dictatorships do not seem to stop her from supporting the overthrowing of president Zelaya in Honduras on her watch in a military coup, and she is refusing to return president Aristide of Haiti back to that country when the country really needs him… so she is being very hypocritical here in accusing other countries of being dictatorships.”
