Yeah, right.

Ahmadinejad told a crowd of tens of thousands of supporters Sunday that Iran's elections are "the soundest, the healthiest of their kind." And he told reporters his country had a free press, and people "can say whatever they like." (link)


  1. weren't the 2000 and 2004 US elections said to be the same?

  2. hey, just wanted to let you know I'm blogging again :)

  3. Are you implying that the elections were rigged? If so what evidence can you provide? The link to your article also says "Moussavi's supporters say the election was rigged. But the huge turnout for Ahmadinejad's victory speech Sunday leaves no doubt that the president carries plenty of support."

    Can you also provide evidence that people can not say whatever they like.

    Here is a good Counterpunch article to "Why the US Wants to Delegitimize the Iranian Elections ".

  4. Brooke, maybe!

    Welcome CBL! Glad you are blogging again!

    Welcome back, Rachel. Of course I have no evidence. I just read the news like you.

    I have no horse in this race, but a crackdown on foreign media, violent repression of protesters, attempts to stop internet activity, and according to the DemocracyNow! broadcast, oddities with the voting seem to suggest that not all is well paradise.

    Thanks for the Counterpunch link.
