While Obama can not bring himself to call the obvious Iran election fraud for what it is, a leaked report indicates just how big a fraud the “count” may be:
. . . reports circulated of leaked interior ministry statistics showing [Mousavi] as the clear victor in last Friday's polls.
The statistics, circulated on Iranian blogs and websites, claimed Mr Mousavi had won 19.1 million votes while Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had won only 5.7 million.
The two other candidates, reformist Mehdi Karoubi and hardliner Mohsen Rezai, won 13.4 million and 3.7 million respectively. The authenticity of the leaked figures could not be confirmed.
