Thanks to Gateway Pundit for informing the blogosphere that Iran’s most famous dissident, Ahmad Batebi, is now here with us. And what better time to break the news than the 4th of July weekend? Batebi is the student leader whose picture ran on the cover of The Economist, holding up the blood-stained tee shirt of one of his friends, who was killed by the regime’s thugs in 1999.
Batebi did an interview with the Voice of America, and I’m told it had a record audience, as I’d expect. Follow the links, you’ll find the VOA’s press release and other useful items.
