A top aide to Iran's supreme leader called the country's main opposition figure a U.S. agent and said in an editorial Saturday that he should be tried for committing crimes against the nation. While hard-line figures had previously demanded Mir Hossein Mousavi be prosecuted for describing Iran's June 12 elections fraudulent and leading demonstrations afterward, the editorial was the first public declaration that the opposition leader was a foreign agent. "It has to be asked whether the actions of (Mousavi and his supporters) are in response to instructions of American authorities," said Hossein Shariatmadari in an editorial appearing in the conservative daily Kayhan.

Achilles Heel

This note by Hossein Shariatmadari clearly indicates that the “Supreme Leader” is terrified of the formation of a political party where people gather and can act as a group. It is very likely that the “Supreme Leader” and Shariatmadari did not have a good night sleep since they read Mousavi’s last letter to the people of Iran. Therefore, it seems that the first requirement to defeat the “Supreme Leader”, his propaganda agent (Hossein Shariatmadari), and the rest of their friends is to form one opposition party.
