Well, based on the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) Special Dispatch #6131, dated August 10, 2015, President Obama may not end up having a great vacay after all, and it’s to spin up ol’ Josh “not so” Earnest.

“At the time, a respected regional figure came to me as a mediator and explicitly said that U.S. President [Obama] had asked him to come to Tehran and present an American request for negotiations,” Khamenei disclosed. “The Americans told this mediator: ‘We want to solve the nuclear issue and lift sanctions within six months, while recognizing Iran as a nuclear power.’” “I told that mediator that I did not trust the Americans and their words, but after he insisted, I agreed to reexamine this topic, and negotiations began,” Khamenei added.”
