Bloodbath in Tehran: Obama, Stunning Abdication of Leadership

Ongoing coverage at Atlas Shrugs, Nice Deb, Steve Schippert, and Glenn Reynolds.

The Obama administration has
rescinded its 4th of July invitations to Iranian diplomats. Melanie Phillips comments:
What a disgrace that this man is leader of the free world; and at such a point in history. If he had put America stoutly behind the protesters and championed them against the regime, by now they might have toppled it. There are signs today that even the fawning American media is appalled.
Here are more viideos via iReport, uploaded today:

And check this report from Australia's ABC News, "'Blood Everywhere' in Fresh Iran Crackdown":
There are reports of another brutal crackdown in Iran, with websites, internet bloggers and eyewitnesses all talking of a bloodbath in Tehran.

The reports suggest thousands of police and pro-government militia have used firearms, clubs and teargas to suppress another opposition rally.

There is even one account of a nine-year-old girl being shot.
