    Iranian cleric says some of arrested UK Embassy staff will be put on trial

    Nine embassy staff were held earlier this week; all but one reported released

    Iran accuses UK of fomenting unrest, post-election protests in the country

    British Foreign Secretary David Miliband has protested the arrests


    " "The British foreign office had said last March that there may be riots during the elections in Iran and they said that they should warn their citizens to be careful.

    "What do these predictions mean? And then some people in the UK embassy, who had a hand in the disturbances, were arrested and will surely be put on trial."

    Iran's intelligence minister has blamed Western powers for stirring up protests over its disputed presidential election, singling out Britain and saying the British Embassy in Tehran "played a heavy role in the recent disturbances."

    It's fascinating, isn't it? Of course the Britain they're referring to is one so long since dead.... but they resurrect its ghost to their own purpose. And they are fooling noone.

    I think this is strong evidence that Obama's strategy worked. It may even mean that the Iranian regime wishes not to foreclose the possibility of negotiation.

    It is monumentally depressing that Iranians must live under this regime.

    The stories coming out of Iran are staggering. That we are hearing them are revolutionary. People there won't even tell what's going on, to relatives on the phone, because the whako regime is listening and will kill for that. Where are you sleeping tonight? Kinda different?
