A Failure of Propagandic Proportions

It seems that CBS News has uncovered a bit of propaganda that the Iranian government had tried to spread. Iran’s government claimed that INTERPOL was investigating Neda Soltan’s death, when in fact they invented the probe.

Rachel Billington, a spokesperson for INTERPOL, said: "We've not received any request for information or for assistance on the death of that lady.”

This is just one more thing to add to the illegitimacy of the regime which has just declared itself in charge after fraudulently stuffing ballot boxes and refusing to hold a re-vote—the only way it might be able to ensure enough confidence in the process to prevent exactly the kinds of protests which are continuing to plague Tehran.

Makes you wonder what kind of madness they think they can get away with, doesn’t it?
