Policy toward Iran has historically been an enigma for Western powers and for Washington in particular. It could even be argued that U.S. policy toward Iran has been the bete noire for bipartisan administrations — Republican and Democrat — since the 1979 revolution.

This is partly due to fabrications that the Islamic Republic and its apologists have peddled for decades, including that:
