Obama backs Ahmadinejad, a slaughterer who stole the Iran election, who is systemically executing anyone who dared to speak of it. The mullahcracy is crushing the Iranian freedom movement with incomprehensible violence. This is what Obama stands with. This is what America has reduced herself to.

The four prisoners who have
been sentenced in the last week are among more than 4,000 Iranians arrested for
their part in the protests that followed the disputed election, many of whom
have been accused of trying to overthrow the Islamic republic. Most of those
detained have been released, but about 200 remain behind bars and around 110
have so far been put on trial.
