Something big, and real, and tremendously heartening, has been happening all weekend in the streets of Iran. Watch the video above. The crowd’s courage should put a spring in your step. CNN’s failure to pay attention has not gone unnoticed by angry viewers. Joe Biden is culpably slow on the uptake too.

It is a question for Western governments too, and for every one of us as we watch.
