Iranian Election

Friday, June 12, 2009

Elections are being held today in Iran. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been locked in a neck-and-neck race with reform-minded former Prime Minister Mir-Hossein Mousavi, and in recent days the campaign has become particularly heated. We’ll talk to CNN’s Chief international correspondent Christiane Amanpour from Iran.

This is why I give money to wnyc. A ten minute conversation with Christiane Amanpour about the elections makes me want to learn more and more about Iran and all of the Arab/Muslim world politics. She is brilliant.
And all this after a mouth-watering talk about hogs in the pits!

Bring it on - you all are the best!
