Iran’s now illegitimate President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad just made the bizarre statement in the last hour that ongoing street protests really show that Iran is a democracy. I guess he hasn’t been to the ones where people are being beaten by police with clubs.
In a few hours, I will be posting an anonymized collection of written clips from someone in the streets of Tehran and what this person has seen unfold and heard through his channels over the last couple of days.
On other fronts, I will be in Los Angeles on Monday and Tuesday.
