That’s because gathering information in such a difficult location as Iran presents unique opportunities and challenges. Read this letter and see if it looks kosher.
On July 12, the Iranian news agency ISNA published a letter written by Chief of Staff Hassan Firouzabadi to the Shi’ite Messiah, the Hidden Imam… Thanks to highly-placed sources in the armed forces, I [Michael Ledeen] have received a copy of the Hidden Imamâs reply to Firouzabadi, which follows here, without comment.My Dear Hassan,
To tell you the truth I had given up on you. THIRTY YEARS since your last letter? Is that what passes for filial piety nowadays in the Islamic Republic? The very visible Imam himself, the beloved Ayatollah Khomeini, spoke to me frequently. It didn’t matter if things were going well or badly, he stayed in touch. And Ahmadinezhad, who has his qualities, arranged to have all members of his government swear loyalty to me, and had the signed document delivered to me in my well. But not you! I only hear from you when you’re in a jam.

My additional questions:
- Is this really the Mahdi or the chief of staff’s mother-in-law? Sounds like every infallible mother-in-law I know of.
- If this is the Mahdi, why does he have to hide from Mr. GBU-12 at the bottom of a well?
- He is supposed to leave the well at some point. Good. What is the Mahdi’s Exit Strategy?
Readers, have some fun and leave your own question in a comment.
