Stiffing the Revolutionaries

Obama may be cutting off money for groups that promote democracy for Iran, but Reza Aslan says he and most other young Iranians struggling for a change there are glad the U.S. is keeping its measly $85 million.

In 2006, after Secreatary of State Condoleezza Rice asked Congress to transfer $85 million into the Iran Demcracy Fund to, as she put it, “promote political change inside Iran” (translation: bring down the Iranian regime), I made a visit to the plush offices of National Iranian Television (NITV) in Los Angeles to find out how some of the tens of millions of dollars the U.S. had been giving to various Iranian dissident and human-rights groups was being spent.
