Show-trial folk are the best folk

Iran's official news agency, IRNA, is reporting that 100 opposition political activists and protesters stood trial in Tehran today, on charges that include attacking military and government buildings, having links with armed opposition groups and conspiring against the ruling system.

According to FARS English site, the Deputy Prosecutor General of Tehran's public and revolutionary courts said that the foreign media contributed a major role in the post-election frenzy in Iran.

"It should be noted that foreign media, including BBC Persian, VOA, Al-Arabia, Radio Farda and Radio Zamaneh, have played a salient role in training and provoking illegal gatherings and unrests," he said.

The prosecutor alleged that Newsweek reporter, Mazyar Bahari had told him that the policy of the western media was based on inculcating fraud in Iran's 10th presidential election even before voting started.

"I asked the issue from Mr. (Mohammad) Khatami (former Iranian president) in an interview and after the interview I witnessed a movement in the country which accorded with the classic paradigms of velvet revolution," he quoted Bahari as saying.

The government's claims of legitimacy just get more and more pathetic by the day.
