Was the Iranian election rigged?

Posted by Richard on June 15, 2009

I must admit I'm confused. 

Everything I know about Iran suggests the election results are completely bogus. Massive demonstrations throughout the country leading up to the vote and widespread discontent over the growing domestic problems created by the government's national socialist economic policies (a major issue in the elections) make it extremely unlikely, if not impossible, that Ahm-a-doin-a-jihad received such a landslide of support.

On the other hand, if this was yet another example of a corrupt autocratic regime rigging a sham election, why wasn't Jimmy Carter there to bless the results?

UPDATE: I just learned that on Saturday, Ayatollah Khamenei attributed Ahm-a-doin-a-jihad's victory to "divine intervention." So it's pretty clear that the election was rigged — the question is by whom. 

But where the heck is Jimmy Carter?
