At the CNN debate, Michele Bachmann included a false accusation against President Obama’s handling of Iran.
“He met with them with no preconditions,” said Bachmann. “And the doctrine of appeasement — he has changed the course of history, because at a time when we needed a leader the most, we didn’t have one.”
Obama has never met directly with the Iranian government. The closest that has occurred to this situation has been some diplomatic interaction between the two countries, in the U.S.’s efforts to prevent Iran from having nuclear weapons.
