Supreme Leader: Investigate the Election

Tens of thousands of supporters of Mir Hossein Mousavi marched through Tehran today, protesting the results of Friday’s election. Have they gotten the Ayatollah Khamenei’s attention? According to the Associated Press, Iran’s supreme leader has ordered an investigation into allegations of election fraud. “The decision comes after Mousavi wrote a letter appealing to the Guardian Council and met Sunday with Khamenei, who holds almost limitless power over Iranian affairs. Such an election probe by the 12-member council is uncharted territory and it not immediately clear how it would proceed or how long it would take.”
