Michael Ledeen publishes Mousavi open letter to Pres. Obama

MICHAEL LEDEEN publishes a letter that appears to come from Mousavi or his people, viz.

I’ve received what purports to be a statement from Mousavi’s Office in Tehran… I get a lot of material that can’t be authenticated, and one must always take such material with a healthy dose of skepticism. That said, the person who sent this to me is undoubtedly in touch with the Mousavi people on the ground

So here you go:

From the Office of Mr. Mir Hossein Mousavi

To the President of the USA, Mr. Barack Hussein Obama:

Dear Mr. President,

In the name of the Iranian people, we want you to know that when you recently made the statement “Achmadinejad or Mousavi? Two of a kind,” we consider this as a grave and deep insult, not just to Mr. Mousavi but especially against the judgment of the Iranian people, against our moral conviction and intelligence, especially those of the young generation that comprises a population of 31 million….

It is a short letter, so click through to Ledeen’s original page for the entirety plus an addendum from Mousavi’s speech on Saturday.
