Iran: Rigged elections and video tapes

I am sure you still remember the 2009 presidential elections in Iran. The one which the opposition said was rigged.

A controversial video has now been leaked in which the head of the Revolutionary Guards confirms that his organization intervened in those elections, because they didn’t like the impending result. So the opposition was right, the 2009 elections were rigged.

My latest article looks at the implications of this new video. Please share with family and friends.
