But, wait -- it gets better!
I seem to have heard this kind of thing from exiled dissidents before:
"An exiled Iranian dissident on Saturday said
Iran's newly elected president — already accused of taking American diplomats hostage 36 years ago — played a key role in the 1989 execution-style slayings of a Kurdish opposition leader and two associates in Vienna."
Now, I'm not necessarily questioning the validity of this story. Alls I'm sayin' is that it's awful convenient for this stuff to be coming out right now, almost as if we were being prepared for - oh, say, - attacking Iran.
