Former Iranian president says regime committed "coup" against the peopleTopics: Iran
As Ed Morrissey notes at Hot Air, the Iranian mullahs may have expected the opposition movement to die out by now, in some cases literally, they got a big shock today from within their ruling class. A former president of Iran, has apparently switched sides and joined Mirhossein Mousavi in demanding new elections, and did so in "a bold, lengthy statement Wednesday on his Web site."
Clearly, although violently repressed, the opposition's pursuit of significant political reform isn't over, despite what we might otherwise believe, given the abandonment of coverage by the media in order to report on what they consider more important events - such as 24/7 coverage of Michael Jackson's death.
