Some might say that, as the people were all but begging for American support....
They were not. There may have been people on the streets asking for U.S. help, but neither Mousavi nor his lieutenants, nor any of the leaders of the demonstrators, requested U.S. aid.
And, as I said, helping them would have only helped Ahmadinejad by making politically neutral or undecided Iranians think Mousavi is an American puppet and that the U.S. was trying to control their country again. It would have completely backfired had we gotten involved.
