Oops! What is Washington to do? For months — longer — the geniuses at the State Dept., the Administration, and their NGOs have told us that the presidential election in Iran would be neither free nor fair.
Now that Washington’s favorite candidate, the “reformist” Hassan Rouhani, has won the election outright how are they going to back-track on their assessment?
It might be fun to watch. Probably, though, they will just pretend they didn’t say all the stuff they said before things turned out their way. Probably no one will notice.
Iran-watchers Flynt and Hillary Mann Leverett predicted that “Iran’s Presidential Election Will Surprise America’s So-called Iran ‘Experts’” and it looks like they were right.
