| 1 Comment

Iran is becoming a military dictatorship, Secretary of State Clinton said in a speech Monday in Qatar.

The comment came during a speech at Carnegie Mellon University's Doha, Qatar campus, said Politico.

Clinton said she is concerned with Revolutionary Guards continued encroachment into making decisions regarding Iran's national security, including control of the nuclear program, said the New York Times. "We see that the government of Iran, the supreme leader, the president, the Parliament is being supplanted and that Iran is moving toward a military dictatorship," she said.

Four companies who are controlled by the Revolutionary Guards had their assets frozen by the Treasury Department last week, the New York Times reported. The U.S. government plans to continue to target holding that are under the control of the Revolutionary Guards.
