Robert Fisk: Secret letter 'proves Mousavi won poll' ??

-

They were handing out the photocopies by the thousand under the plane trees in the centre of the boulevard, single sheets of paper grabbed by the opposition supporters who are now wearing black for the 15 Iranians who have been killed in Tehran – who knows how many more in the rest of the country? – since the election results gave Mahmoud Ahmadinejad more than 24 million votes and a return to the presidency. But for the tens of thousands marking their fifth day of protests yesterday – and for their election campaign hero, Mirhossein Mousavi, who officially picked up just 13 million votes – those photocopies were irradiated.

    • I've seen it. I've also seen it debunked by an Iranian. The main reason to suspect it was that it was actually leaked. How did it get leaked exactly?

      The debumkers seemed to think it was a good forgery, but there were a few reasons that it was a forgery. I don't know whethere it's legitimate or not but the person who 'leaked' it died in a mysterious car bomb didn't he?

    • Fisk is the only Western journalist in Iran who isn't afraid to attempt do his job. (Most "journalists" are genuine pussies, these days.) He doesn't take sides about whether the letter is real or fake, if you actually READ his article, contrary to your headline.

    • I'm not saying he says it's fake. I know Fisk is the real McCoy, that's why I posted this. The title is his own but I added the question marks based on other stuff I've read about that letter. There are a fwe things wrong with that letter, you can research it yourself if you like.

    • I know you ARE completely conscious of the way in which you distort other peoples' words. And that's MY point.
