(Newser) – No fireworks for you, Iranian diplomats. The State Department today rescinded an invitation to Iran's envoys to attend Fourth of July celebrations at US embassies around the world, reports the Washington Times. Hillary Clinton notified her underlings that "circumstances have changed" and cited Tehran's "unjust actions." At the White House, press chief Robert Gibbs noted that no diplomats from Iran had accepted anyway.
