Iranian Election Stolen?
PATRICK DOHERTY, via Kate Brown
Deputy director of the American Strategy Program at the New America Foundation, Doherty co-wrote today's Washington Post piece "The Iranian People Speak" with Ken Ballen of Terror Free Tomorrow: The Center for Public Opinion.
The piece states: "The election results in Iran may reflect the will of the Iranian people. Many experts are claiming that the margin of victory of incumbent President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was the result of fraud or manipulation, but our nationwide public opinion survey of Iranians three weeks before the vote showed Ahmadinejad leading by a more than 2 to 1 margin -- greater than his actual apparent margin of victory in Friday's election." http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/06/14/AR200906...
Naiman is senior policy analyst and national coordinator at Just Foreign Policy. He recently wrote the piece "Based on Terror Free Tomorrow Poll, Ahmadinejad Victory Was Expected."
