My apologies for such a short post on a topic which has sent shockwaves through the press, but I believe that the following video goes a long way towards mitigating the importance of opposition leader Mehdi Karroubi’s alleged turnabout concerning the legitimacy of the presidential election and recognition of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as Iran’s president.
The video was released by the Bashgaheh Khabarnegaran (Journalists’ Club) which is run by the political division of the Islamic Republic’s radio-television. The regime therefore felt it important to distribute this video clip to support Fars’s claim. To say that it is a weak endorsement is an understatement.
