Iranian Election Aftermath Roundup
Lots has been going on and I haven’t had the time to share it all.
Basically what it boils down to is this. The Iranian government is finally starting to crack down for real and the people aren’t standing down. Meanwhile, Obama still hasn’t come out in favor of Mousavi, and that’s drawing criticism stateside from some conservative commentators, especially neo-cons.
By the way, Andrew Sullivan’s blog has become THE place to read all the breaking news coming out of Iran. Truly impressive coverage and he should be applauded for the pace he’s kept up the past week.
