Is Khamenei dead?

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Pajamas Media is reporting that Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran's supreme leader and former president, has died. You can find out more about Khamenei here. And check back with PJM for updates. It is still not clear what has happened.

  • Khamenei is keeping a low profile because he's not sure how to respond to the unanimous UN resolution against Iran. There's clearly some behind the scenes discussions going on in Tehran among the senior leadership about an official response to the resolution, which came as a surprise. Ahmadinejad's stupid comments were expected and no big deal. But the first time the leader appears publicly he'll have to say something about the resolution and that will be a bg deal.

    More than likely than not, Ledeen -- who is a a former lackey of AIPAC and probable continued Israeli intelligence operative -- is spreading lies about Khamenei's health to put pressure on the regime. There's no reason to believe it. Ledeen is a longtime liar on both Iran and Iraq and has absolutely no credibility among serious Iran watchers. Same goes for her pathetic henchwoman Banafsheh Zand.
