    Green Brief #90

    By Codeman177 – http:/twitter.com/codeman177

    Since Niteowl has started posting on his own blog, I have asked if I could begin publishing the Green Brief so that everyone on wwp would once again have a summary of the day’s news from Iran. I, like Niteowl, have gotten all of my information from reliable tweets and am not reporting any information that I could not confirm.

    Today's Green Brief is short, I wrote it while I was waiting to pick up Nasrin from the airport.

    I still need translators so if you know another language and can translate send me an email to c_weible@hotmail.com. If you are translating the Green Brief already could you send me an email so I can get a list of those who are translating it and into what language.

    Starting tomorrow I will have a co-writer helping me with the Green Brief, her name is Nasrin, she is from Afghanistan. However she has been attending Tehran University since last year so she will be giving her own take on things. She’ll be staying here in the US with me for a few weeks.
