Was Iran's Election Stolen? Brazenly it would seem.

The top two vote getting candidates, were not Ahmadinejad it would seem, who was beaten by a margin of almost 4 to 1 by Mousavi and by more than 2 to 1 by the second place finisher, Mehdi Karoubi. This would account for the overwhelming belief among the populace that Ahmadinejad did not win. Figure it this way, the average Iranian voter knows five opposition voters, for every one voter for Ahmadinejad. Six, if he or she voted for Ahmadinejad. This is also why a larger number of people are not taking to the streets and beating the crap out of protesters. They're vastly outnumbered.
The Telegraph - "The statistics, circulated on Iranian blogs and websites, claimed Mr Mousavi had won 19.1 million votes while Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had won only 5.7 million.

The two other candidates, reformist Mehdi Karoubi and hardliner Mohsen Rezai, won 13.4 million and 3.7 million respectively. The authenticity of the leaked figures could not be confirmed."
These statistics are NOT official as the story points out, but it's hard to argue that 6 out of 7 Iranian voters, feel cheated.

When does our impotent President realize it's time to get behind the people of Iran? If he doesn't do it soon, he will appear to be a supporter of Ahmadinejad to the Iranian people.
