I could have sworn The Government had set money aside for this in 2006 or 2007. To help the Iranian people protest the Iranian regime.
I can't seem to find it now, maybe it doesn't exist. If anyone knows what I'm talking about could you please post it or let me know where to find it, or just tell me I'm crazy.
Any sources would be nice if you read this somewhere?
In a very important development, Grand Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, the most senior cleric living in Iran, and one of the top two* marja’ taghlid (source of emulation) in Shiite Islam, issued a series of Fatwas, calling the Supreme Leader illegitimate and saying that he was working with the government against religion. Montazeri has called on people to take action against this injustice, even if they have to pay a heavy price for it.
On July 11, 2009, the liberal Iranian website www.khandaniha.eu published a fatwa by Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, the most senior contemporary Shi'ite cleric. The fatwa was issued in response to a series of queries submitted to him by Iranian intellectual and cleric Mohsen Kadivar, pertaining to the legitimacy of the current Iranian government.

John I can assure you as an American as opposed to a British Citizen which you are...
That you do not work for the CIA, that you know nothing about the CIA and know no one who works for the CIA.
While in your mind you feel well qualified for the job of 'knowing' how the CIA runs and what it's goals would be...
I can assure you that they are neither bound by, operate under or share your highly speculative and biased oppinion on something you have no intimate involvement, knowledge or responsibility towards.
Ignorance is the one objection that can never be overcome John because the ignorant will not consider any other view or perspective but their own.
This is why people will not debate you, this is why your thread has garnered little interest as you seek to dictate to others your world view as being the only 'correct' view.
Should you come by any credible intelligence from Iran by qualified sources do feel free to post it as those of us with open minds enjoy weighing and considering all credible and intelligent sources of information which your third party article that you originally posted and your third party oppinions don't constitute.
You simply like everyone else on ATS have a theory and are prepared to brow beat people and endlessly go on and on why everyone else should share your unqualified theory based on what is nothing but "The world according to John" and the only one who lives in that world in fact is "John"
