ABSTRACT
The article comments on the accession of Sadegh Ghotbzadeh as Iran's Foreign Minister who is well experienced in revolutionary conspiracy and agitation. While a sophisticated understanding of the possibilities may be beyond Ayatollah Khomeini, Ghotbzadeh may prove to be clever enough to recognize an opportunity for propaganda by showing magnanimity in releasing the American hostages and sending them home.
