Who's the Pinocchio--Khamenei or Psaki?

Iran's Grandiose Ayatollah has made the astounding claim that the U.S. reached out and asked Iran to become part of the anti-ISIS coaltion. To which Foggy Bottom Gilmore Girl Jen Psaki, in major damage control mode (her default setting), responds that the U.S. did no such thing.

Since both sides have been known to practice taqiyyah for the sake of furthering their own interests and covering their own butts, it's hard to know who's being truthful here. However, given the Obama regime's history of reaching out to Khamenei over and over and over again, I'd be willing to bet money that it's Jen whose nose is growing.

Update: From a Reuters report:
In a rare direct intervention into diplomacy, Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said Washington had reached out through the Iranian embassy in Baghdad, requesting a meeting to discuss cooperation against Islamic State. 
Khamenei said that some Iranian officials had welcomed the contacts, but he had personally vetoed them.

Jen looks good in orange, don't you think?
