ABC News, home of America Held Hostage Day XXX, and Iran get together at Starbucks and talk about how great things are going since they broke up. From ABC News:
Although it was turned into a museum long ago, TV cameras have rarely been allowed in. But it recently was renovated, which may explain why Iranians proudly showed ABC News what they now call the “den of spies.”
Souvenirs seized by the hostage-takers are antiques now — including old computers and circuitry, a device to destroy documents, and a massive code machine from the National Security Agency.
One of the central exhibits here is what they call the “glassy room” for top-secret meetings. Majid said it is set up more or less how they found it when the American spies operated here — though he said they removed the green velvet drapes and added mannequins to depict one of the alleged secret meetings.
I wonder if the mannequins are discussing withdrawing support from the Shah? “Aw, c’mon. What’s the worst that could happen?”
“We have no relationship with America now, so it’s better,” one visitor said.
“Kindly remove us from your list. DOWN WITH AMERICA! Yours sincerely…”
