Iran's supreme leader blasts Ahmadinejad for corruption claims


www.guardian.co.uk

Iran's president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, faced a rare backlash from some of the country's most powerful officials today after a furious television debate in which he labelled many of his critics corrupt.

In the most significant development, Ahmadinejad appeared to have irked the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, over his performance in Wednesday night's debate with Mir Hossein Mousavi, his main opponent in next week's presidential election.

Well this is an interesting development. It appears not everything is as it seems in Iran's paradise.



I've been monitoring this election closely for a few weeks. I'm surprised the supreme council has let it go this far. Things must be heating up. I'm glad to see a somewhat candid debate take place and I'm also glad to see a more open stance on the candidates part towards a more open move towards the west esp the US.

I'll bump you because that is a great find. I am surprised this happened at all, and even more surprised we are hearing about it. It is looking like this guy won't be re-elected. That will put a monkey wrench in everything over there.

BTW: There are not a lot of responses around this time everyday for some reason. Better to post earlier or later I guess.

Wow! I am surprised as well. It would be really cool if we could see these debates and have interputer. The Supreme leader must be worried and what a wonderful thing that is! You are right Slayer, very interesting indeed.

Yeah this from a few weeks back very interesting report.
Iran's spiritual leader discourages electing a pro-Western president

Reporting from Beirut -- Iran's most powerful political and spiritual leader warned voters Monday against supporting pro-Western candidates in next month's presidential election, comments widely seen as supporting President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's approach to foreign policy over those of his challengers.

"Those who submit to the enemies and bring shame on the nation should not come to power by the people's vote," Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said during a speech in the western town of Bijar.

Good find and interesting news!

The Ayatollah is the real power in Iran, regardless of who is office. From what I recall, the has Ayatollah has clashed with Ahmadinejad before.

Didn't Ahmadinejad basically fire some offical a bit ago and the Ayatollah over ruled him?

Maybe the Ayatollah is starting realize that Ahmadinejad retoric doesn't always serve Iran's best interests.

Or maybe the candidates realize that Iran will have to come out of it's shell a little more to engage the rest of the world esp the West if it wants to become more economically viable in this global slow down.

People hate loosing what they get a taste of.
