WASHINGTON – US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton warned Tuesday that Iran is aggressively trying to take advantage of the domestic upheavals across the Arab world and warned that the United States needs to maintain robust aid and involvement in the region to keep Tehran from succeeding.

Clinton described Iran as working “every single day with as many assets as they can muster trying to take hold of this legitimate movement for democracy” in testimony before the US House Foreign Affairs Committee.

“There’s no doubt in my mind if we are not present, and present in resources not just in rhetoric, not just saying what we’re for but being able to deliver on that, others will fill that vacuum,” cautioned Clinton. “We are in a competition. I just stress over and over again, we’ve got to be there. We’ve got to fight back.”
