Do these idiots in Washington realize the free trade agreement with Iraq that is currently in place is basically a vehicle for Iranian goods - such as pistachios - to reach the American market by way of Iraq? Does anybody really believe there is a definitive way to figure out where pistachios came from? LOL That's bluster at best and pure nonsense from where I sit. Chinese merchants can import them from Iran and dump them in America and who is going to know? Give me a break, this is nuts(pun intended) to suggest the origin of a pistachio can be determined, scientifically or otherwise. I'm sure science will uncover many details about it's origin but that in itself hardly means anything when millions of tons of products move in and out countries from all corners of the globe.
