Daily Briefing on Iran 2/28/2006

Yesterday's Daily Briefing on Iran is interesting in that there is much speculation about the Russian/Iranian deal. There are many articles worth reading.

Rooz Online also has an article about the undisclosed discussions Iran with Europe. These are notes from within Iran.

Today's articles include: Vital Perspective published the full text of the embargoed IAEA Report on Iran's Nuclear Program. Rooz Online reported that with the upcoming March 6 meeting of the IAEA coming soon, journalists are being summoned to the Ministry of Islamic Guidance and threatened on what they write.

This is one story you should watch very closely. Eli Lake, The New York Sun reported that Iranian dissident and opposition leader Akbar Ganji is scheduled to be released from Evin Prison in about 20 days. Eli has been following this and doing a very remarkable job. Akbar Ganji may be our ticket to peace in Iran. Watch closely.

A few more articles: Iran Focus published a list of 20 terrorist camps and centers run by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC). BBC News reported that two bombs have exploded in the southern Iranian cities of Dezful and Abadan, planted in the governor's offices. And finally, Michael Rubin, The Wall Street Journal provided evidence that Iran's Iraq strategy is a repeat of its successful Hezbollah strategy in Lebanon. That's all for now, unless you go to Daily Briefing on Iran. Have a great day.
