Iran's Chalabi

1- Maybe it wouldn't be such a bad idea for people like Mr. Ledeen, whom still promote interference in Iranian affairs, to assess Mr. Sazgara's popularity among young Iranians before and after he came to the U.S to "seek help".

A good start would be to surf among Iranian blogs, have the posts translated to english, and count the pejorative words!

2- For my english speaking journalist friends who don't read Farsi and consequently cannot accurately decode the reactions among Iranian bloggers, I would like to add that Mr. Sazgara, despite all his past services to the reform mouvement and his often courageous stands (which made him popular among many students), has now been dubbed as Iran's Chalabi!
It is so unfortunate...
