Proof forthcoming that Ahmadinejad lost 2009 election
New information has come to light regarded the much contested belief that the 2009 Iranian elections were rigged
Following Iran's elections in 2009, protesters took to the streets en masse to contest the results. There was no way, they believed, that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad could have soared to victory when the opposition moved loomed so large.
While the protesters were quashed by arrests and violence, the claim has never subsided that the 2009 Iranian elections were fraudulent, and new evidence may finally prove the point.
A taped telephone recording, slightly over 11 minutes in length, is said to provide evidence that election officials added millions to Ahmadinejad's total vote count after the election, in order to stop Mir Hossein Mousavi from assuming the presidency.
The conversation, which the WND website hopes to release in coming weeks, supposedly took place between Mahmoud Ahmadinejad himself and Vahid Haghanian, the head of the supreme leader's office.
During the call, the two argued about what the supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, expected of Ahmadinejad, with Haghanian claiming that millions of fake votes would have to be added to Ahmadinejad's totals in order to declare him the winner.
The actual results, according to a Revolutionary Guard' intelligence unit source, put Mousavi well over 19 million votes, with Ahmadinejad second with just over 13 million. Mohsen Rezaei apparently drew in 3.7 million, while Mehdi Karoubi garnered 3.2 million. The official results claimed that Ahmadinejad received 25 million votes, with the lower two candidates failing to break the 700,000 mark.
Millions of protestors took to the streets in Iran following the election, with opposition members tortured, executed or placed under house arrest.
