Michael Ledeen on how the New York Times is misreporting the Iranian demonstrations. It portrays the demonstrations as aimed at bolstering the elected government in its alleged struggle with the religious establishment. Actually, according to Ledeen, the demonstrators are calling for an end to the Islamic republic, with chants like “Death to the Taliban, in Kabul and Tehran.” Ledeen also criticizes Colin Powell and his State Department for their tepid response to Iran’s “bubbling democratric desire.” Ledeen concludes that, if we support the Iranian people properly, Iran can be liberated without risking the lives of Americans. And “a free Iran will change the world.”
