A key Iranian dissident tells Newsmax he was stunned when he heard President Barack Obama tell reporters that, despite government’s brutal crackdown in Tehran, the Islamic Republic has time to regain “legitimacy” in the eyes of the Iranian people.

“I was hoping President Obama would lead the world and start a boycott of Iranian oil,” said former presidential candidate and opposition activist Mohsen Sazegara. “This is the best way to save the lives of the Iranian people.”

Instead, Sazegara told Newsmax, he listened to Obama’s news conference on Tuesday with a sense of disbelief.

It’s “not too late for the Iranian government to see there is a peaceful path that leads to legitimacy in the eyes of the Iranian people,” Obama told reporters when asked for his reaction to the violence in Iran.
