The Griffin Chalice of Goodwill

Someone (JD) commented on my post about the fiasco of the website, in defense of Obama, giving some examples of good judgment under very complicated conditions.

Chalice of goodwill given to Iran
This chalice of a Griffin was looted from an Iranian cave and illegally smuggled into the U.S. in 2003. Luckily it was intercepted by the government and stored in a federal warehouse since.

This story in the L.A. Times is one example of Obama taking good advice and exercising good judgment with respect to Iran.

Reviewing the outcome in light of the intent, it was certainly the perfect thing to do, given a difficult situation. Congratulations to Obama on a job very well done.
