Folks, you can't make this stuff up!
Just when you thought the US had stopped interferring with Iran, and took heart at Obama's resolve to "talk" first, by extending an open hand, we find out that the covert policies of the Bush administration, see video above, has continued into the Omama presidency? A Mosque, and bank in So East Iran, were bombed just 2 weeks before the Iran elections, purportedly to incite sectarian and ethnic divisions, to affect the outcome of the election. This was one week after the poll, done by a group backed by McCain and Frist, showed that Ahmadinijad would win the Iran election by a vote of 2-1.
Today, Iran continues to be rocked by charges of voter fraud and rigged election. Now I wonder if those who opposed Obama's announced policy of extending an open hand, rather than a clenched fist, and agreeing to talk first, before blowing a country off the map, I wonder if folks who oppose Obama's policy, had anything to do with the "demonstrations" in Iran?
Is This the Culmination of Two Years of Destabilization
Are the Iranian Protests Another US Orchestrated "Color Revolution?"

Or is Obama continuing Bush's covert ops against Iran?

“Some of that money appears to have made it into the hands of pro-Mousavi groups, who have ties to non-governmental organizations outside Iran that the National Endowment for Democracy funds.”
Yes, you say, but what does a blow-hard propagandist like Timmerman know about such things? Well, he should know! His very spooky Foundation for Democracy in Iran has its own snout deep in the trough of NED’s “open covert actions” against the Iranian government.
How does the “Foundation for Democracy in Iran” seek to “promote democracy” in Iran with our tax dollars? Foundation co-founder Joshua Muravchik gives us a hint in his subtly-titled LA Times piece, “Bomb Iran.”
Is Iran right? Have outside forces interferred in the Iran elections and incited the demonstrations in the aftermath of charges that the election was rigged?

Why has the western MSM swarmed this story? Is there fair and unbiased news coverage?
The Western media and Iran
Matthew Cassel, The Electronic Intifada, 23 June 2009
"For years, Palestinians have organized weekly nonviolent demonstrations against Israel's wall in the West Bank. Each week protestors face the heavily-armed Israeli military and are beaten and shot at with rubber-coated steel bullets and tear-gas canisters, sometimes fatally. Yet, during his recent speech in Cairo to the Muslim world, Obama made no reference to these protests and instead called on Palestinians to "abandon violence" and adopt nonviolent means. Days after the speech a Palestinian was killed and a teenager wounded during the weekly protest, yet there has been no call by the US administration for Israel to "stop all violent and unjust actions" against the Palestinian people. And the media has followed and remained silent, even though covering the demonstrations would be as easy as a 30-minute drive from most Jerusalem-based news bureaus on any given Friday.
Why has the western MSM "forgotten" the recenttly and ongoing discussion of US covert ops in Iran in it's reporting of the Iran election? double standard?
Do we have a "free press" or is the press being used to propagandise American people?
