Iranian street protests escalate, media and Obama administration yawn
The anti-mullah protests inside Iran are getting bolder, overwhelming guards and cutting down two students who were about to be publicly hanged. Despite a lack of encouragement from Obama, the protestors are stepping up their actions.
You have to go to the internet to find out about this, since the American media is not much interested (notable exception: The Wall Street Journal). Doug Ross has pictures sent out from Iran, and comments sardonically:
When he has a chance -- perhaps after his long, relaxing vacation -- President Obama can offer an opinion on these poor, unarmed citizens struggling to overthrow despots.
Gateway Pundit has video:
Iran Bebin has more video.
Doug Ross reports that:
A speech by the former president of Iran, Mohammed Khatami, was interrupted and canceled due to a massive protest today.
