Robert Baer On Iran

Iran is not a theocracy. It is a military dictatorship headed by Khamenei and advised by a coterie of generals from the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and the Army, as well as hard-liners in the secret police. Ahmadinejad is little more than the spokesman for this group. He may have a say in the day-to-day management of the economy and other parts of Iranian administration--but all important decisions, particularly those related to Iran's national security, including rigging presidential elections, are made by Khamenei.

A Mis-Step by the Ayatollah Khamenei?

The New York Times has posted this excellent analysis of the situation in Iran, where the apparent re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has sparked violence and fighting in the streets of Tehran and other Iranian cities.

Initially, the Ayatollah had blessed Ahmadinejad for winning the election almost immediately, rather than waiting the traditional 3-day period for results.  Indeed, Ahmadinejad was declared the victor of the election almost immediately upon the closing of polls on Friday evening, raising people's suspicion.  Now, the Ayatollah has reversed field.  

Anyway, check out the piece.  It's worth the read.
