Iran makes laughable conciliatory gestures with recount and investigation

June 29, 2009

(ChattahBox) — In moves that are probably meant to passify the masses, but are likely not to fool many, Iran’s leaders have made some vague conciliatory gestures. Iranian authorities announced today they will recount 10% of the ballots cast in recent tainted presidential elections. The main opposition candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi however has rejected the move as a ploy and refused to participate.
Meanwhile Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman told reporters, that five of the eight British embassy employees arrested over the weekend in Tehran had been released.  The other three however who are Iranian nationals, were under interrogation, likely joining thousands of citizens who ‘offended’ Iran’s leaders by disputing the reelection of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

And leaving no stone unturned in this thinly vailed propaganda campaign, president Ahmadinejad, announced in a letter today, that he has asked judiciary officials to investigate the death of Neda Agha-Soltan, the 26-year-old who was killed June 20 amid a demonstration. With the purpose “to identify and bring to justice the elements responsible for this crime.”  Given that Iranian authorities have already strongly insinuated the CIA, Britain or other foreign nations were involved in plotting Neda’s death this ‘investigation’ could be as pre-determined as the presidential election was.

    So A-Mad-Jihad is asking for an official whitewash, to blame the muder of Neda Agha-Soltan on whoever is most likely to bring his own criminal activities to light, rather than the thugs employed by the Ayatollah, who positively *did* commit the crime in front of thousands of witnesses.

    Why are we not surprised?
