Iranian-American group: Ad sends a wrong, dangerous message

From Charley Keyes, CNN

"Iran makes a KILLING every day we wait" the ad says. The word "KILLING" is in all caps and dark letters next to a barrel of oil and a pile of American dollars. It takes a closer reading to learn the advertisement supports clean energy legislation pending in Congress and an end to U.S. dependence on oil imports from countries like Iran.
"We take issue not with your ultimate goal of combating climate change, but rather with the destructive manner in which your message is being delivered and the unintended consequences it may help produce," the NIAC letter says. "Therefore, we strongly urge you to acknowledge the consequences of your ad campaign and to take immediate action to remove the ads in question."
