"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Iran Says NO to Al Jazeera?

Where “debate” regarding the Holocaust is accepted, questioning the political legitimacy of Iraqi Shiite leader Ali Sistani is not.

London, May 08 – Iran’s Majlis, or Parliament, has banned the prominent Arabic-language satellite channel al-Jazeera, an international press freedoms watchdog said on Monday.”

“Parliamentary speaker Gholam Ali Hadad Adel announced yesterday that journalists employed by the Qatar-based TV station Al-Jazeera would be banned from the Iranian parliament until the station formally apologises for a talk-show last week in which Iraqi Shiite leader Ali Sistani’s political legitimacy was questioned”, Reporters Without Borders said in a report posted on its website.”

I guess Iran is just doing its part in supporting Iraq
