There is a season, spin, spin spin

Press TV, one of Iran's government-run satellite TV channels, is reporting Rasfanjani's speech this morning in Tehran as a call for unity in Iran:

Four weeks after the presidential election, Chairman of Iran’s Expediency Council Ayatollah Hashemi-Rafsanjani calls for a national unity among the nation.

Addressing worshippers in Friday prayers, Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani called on all Iranians to remain united to safeguard the Islamic Revolution.

“Today, we need unity more than ever. All must unite to stand against threats facing the country,” Ayatollah Rafsanjani said, adding that the nation should make every effort to protect the achievements of the country.

The dignitary also said that a solution must be worked out to put an end to the recent political unrest in the country.

While stressing that all complaints by those who have questions about the election must be pursued through legal channels, Ayatollah Rafsanjani also said that the government should work to ease restraints on the press and urged the release of those arrested in in post-election incidents.

For being complete bastards, these guys are pretty good at their jobs sometimes. Still, this is pretty transparent.
