Interestingly enough, the State Dept. said Mr. Mulford was expressing his personal views! Mr. Mulford on the other hand is clearly on the defensive stating that his comments were taken out of context. Damage control from all sides I guess!
Us Ambassador, Mr. Mulford warned that India should back the US motion against Iran to help the US-India nucler deal through Congress. India should be commended for summoning the Ambassador for his comments.
