Battle For The Soul Of Iran

I pointed out a few days ago that the State Department had frozen anintelligent program to strengthen the Iranian opposition.  This, as ithappens, when that opposition is feeling its oats again.  Or rather itsgroats.

Yesterday's FT reports that Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah AliKhameini is under enormous pressure to squelch Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and hisnuclear designs.  (The FT has a different form of spelling than most of us for the Iranianpresident.  It's Ahmadi-Nejad.  More authentic, don't you think?)

Perfect timing, for Ms. Rice.  Maybe, to compensate for the dropping of theIran project, she can get the Annapolis attendees to agree on something, onanything.
