Iran Says Neda's Bullet Was Meant For Someone Else

The Islamic Republic News Agency, Iran's government sanctioned "news" organization, states the murder of Neda Agha-Soltan was just a case of mistaken identity.

The report stated, "The marksmen had mistaken her for the sister of one of the Monafeghin (the People's Mujahedin of Iran) who had been executed in the province of Mazandaran some time ago."

Ah, those silly marksmen. They meant to assassinate some other woman in cold blood. President Obama ought to find that reassuring just as he did when Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said he would look into election irregularities. Perhaps Obama and Iranian diplomats can discuss it further over hot dogs at the U.S. Embassy on the Fourth of July. I'm sure Obama will relish the opportunity.
