Golden Boy Ahmadinejad Faces Unexpected Scrutiny

Posted by a4g @ 7/01/2005 07:01:00 AM

The Iranian government has shown little interest in charges that newly elected president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad participated in the 1979 hostage taking at the US embassy in Teheran. As Washington investigates the claims of former hostages, that they recognize Ahmadinejad from their time in captivity, the Iranian power structure seems to have little concern.

Can't we keep talking about me being a terrorist? My poll numbers are slipping.

Instead, the real controversy forming around Ahmadinejad is rocking the normally smooth transitions of Iranian politics. The Iranian Broadcast Service (IBS) is reporting that new documents have surfaced that show that Ahmadinejad may not have completed a neccessary physical after the release of the 52 American hostages from 444 days of captivity.

"The personal papers of Ahmadinejad's revolutionary commander have recently been made available to IBS," said Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (no relation), an anchor with the television network. "It appears that Ahmadinejad may have been grounded from his hijack-ready status sometime in late 1981, due to failure to complete certain training missions at a terrorist camp in northern Iran."

A spokesman for Ahmadinejad, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (also no relation), angrily denies the charges, "Pres. Ahmadinejad completed his service to the revolution. He fulfilled all requirements, including capture of Americans, flying several scouting and reconnaisance missions on commercial airlines, actively participating in the stoning of at least seven impure women, and performing the various amputations and torture that go along with the service."

Ahmadinejad is said to be confident that he will be vindicated, and that he will shown to be guilty of only the crimes that got him elected in the first place.

Bill Quick sees it as a message from the Mullahs.
