    AP, Washington, June 28, 2009 - President Barack Obama's criticism of Iran has escalated into an unusually personal war of words. To Iranian President Mahmoud Ahamdinejad's demand he apologize for meddling, Obama shot back that the regime should 'think carefully' about answers owed to protesters it has arrested, bludgeoned and killed.
    'The violence perpetrated against them is outrageous,' Obama said Friday. 'We see it and we condemn it.'
    The president spoke at an East Room news conference capping his third set of meetings with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, one of several European leaders who spoke out more forcefully, more quickly than Obama on the unrest in Iran that followed the disputed June 12 elections.
    'We will not forget,' Merkel said.
