  1. No mention of this in Press TV – so much for their Vision “Bringing to light untold and overlooked stories of individuals who have experienced the vitality and versatility of political and cultural divides firsthand.”

    Wonder if there will be any protesters on behalf of Haleh Sahabi at the NAC this Saturday for “Iran, Land of Glory, a Cultural Day”.  Bet if were being held in Vancouver there would be.

    Makes one wish Stephen Coonts novel “The Disciple” were fact and not fiction.
