    2:01 AM ET -- Aslan: Rafsanjani calls "emergency" meeting of Assembly of Experts. If true, this is a bombshell. Appearing on CNN last night, Iran expert Reza Aslan reported this:

    There are very interesting things that are taking place right now. Some of my sources in Iran have told me that Ayatollah Rafsanjani, who is the head of the Assembly of Experts -- the eighty-six member clerical body that decides who will be the next Supreme Leader, and is, by the way, the only group that is empowered to remove the Supreme Leader from power -- that they have issued an emergency meeting in Qom.

    Now, Anderson, I have to tell you, there's only one reason for the Assembly of Experts to meet at this point, and that is to actually talk about what to do about Khamenei. So, this is what I'm saying, is that we're talking about the very legitimacy, the very foundation of the Islamic Republic is up in the air right now. It's hard to say what this is going to go.

    Mr. Rafsanjanis 39-year-old son, Mehdi Hashemi Rafsanjani, directs the sophisticated electoral effort based at Islamic Azad University, which was founded by his father. It is here that the young women, paid $20 to $25 a day, can be seen at all hours assembling data to help election monitors observe the vote on Friday.

    This is parallel to the Interior Ministry, which oversees the election, the younger Mr. Rafsanjani said with a smile. But ours is secret.

    The universitys campaign team has developed its own software for doing election polls, and has given 1,000 phones equipped with it to campaign workers who fan out across the country to do face-to-face questionnaires. They type the answers directly into the phones, and then transmit them back to the Tehran headquarters by text message, Mr. Rafsanjani said. The surveys are being done almost continuously, and the latest show Mr. Moussavi with at least 56 percent of the vote, compared with a maximum of 42 percent for Mr. Ahmadinejad, he said.

    Check out the link for more detailed information. These numbers support the inofficial results published on the Moussavi website:

    Only problems is, that family has fleeced the nation to the hilt, as well replacing one lousy Mullah with another one, only will prolong the agony, and causes total dejection among the people and the youth in particular.
    You don't have to be Einstein to work out the whole election was fraud, what is surprising is that every one is surprised!
    This type of heinous regime is capable of far grater crimes, election rigging is a Sunday School frolic,

  4. very well said. the roots of corruption are in foundation of this system and replacing one person with another, whether a mullah or non-mullah, with current system and constitution will have no genuine result for people to regain their rights from suppressive regime.
