The BBC is reporting that Mir Hossein Mousavi did NOT attend a scheduled meeting with the Guardian Council today. Had he done so, one suspects he would already be dead – or wishing he was.
Mr Mousavi had been expected, along with fellow challengers Mr Karroubi and Mohsen Rezai, to discuss more than 600 objections they had filed complaining about the poll at a meeting of the Guardian Council, which certifies elections, on Saturday.
But neither Mr Mousavi nor Mr Karroubi attended the meeting – which suggests, our correspondent says, they have abandoned their legal challenge to the election results.
Again, time for the west, especially the US, to denounce the mullahs brutality toward their own people. Specifically place the blame for the violence where it belongs.
