This is one trip I won't be taking...

Why does it not surprise me that Code Pink recommends and endorses this trip?

"It has become even more important for Americans to educate themselves, and provide a counter balance to the United States' demonization of the country and people," um, yeah, ok.

My favourite part:
"Because of the current circumstances, meetings with government officials, NGOs and some religious minorities are restricted [....] Nonetheless, we feel that citizen diplomacy in countries with which the US maintains a stance of isolation, is the first step to breaking the walls and barriers"

Yes, I'm sure a bunch of anti-war nutjobs visiting Iran will change everything and stop this, this and this from happening.
