Nothing has changed.
Iran's supreme dictator Khamenei decided to appoint a so-called "moderate" to fool the naive westerners and reduce the pressure on his dying regime. And unfortunately 35 million Iranians decided to play his game.
One positive thing out of the whole thing: The Iranian people still have the capacity or the ability to come out to the streets in the thousands as we saw over this past weekend. Too bad this energy cannot be channeled to topple the current regime entirely.
Great Q/A with Michael Rubin on the 2013 elections here.
