Why should citizens of a nation which we are on hostile terms with be permitted to study and take advantage of knowledge from the US, most likely to return and use that against us, whether in a technical manner or to gain economically from it?
Paranoid much?

As for being less then impressed, I shall not impose myself on them in their country and ask no more of them.

I am for denying them any advantage gained by being educated here. It's not in the best interests of the US to do so.
Do you also assume all Americans are gun touting cowboys?

I have known some really great people from Iran, most of the people there are good people, we just happen to disagree with their government.

The coalition of wealthy neocons and flag-waving trailer park scum may consider themselves hostile to Iranian people, but not all of us have to.

Last time we brought in hordes of them they did little but run around protesting and overthrowing their secular government. They wanted a fascist Islamic state, let them stay in it.

The problem is that because of sanctions, students cannot transfer money from Iranian banks to US bank accounts. How do Foreign students bring money for tuition/living expenses? There is a limited amount one can bring in cash. Above that one has to bring thru Traveller checks, Bank Draft or Online Transfer to your student bank account in USA. Sanctions closed that window of Draft/Online Transfer.
