    WikiLeaks document dump: Iran President Ahmadinejad slapped by head of Revolutionary

    The WikiLeaks document dump continues to kick up surprises.
    A new diplomatic cable says the head of Iran's Revolutionary Guard smacked President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the face for suggesting easing restrictions on the press.
    The February 2010 cable, classified secret and puckishly headlined, "He Who Got Slapped," quotes an intelligence source recounting a contentious meeting of Iran's Supreme National Security Council.
    The Iranian bigs were trying to figure out what to do in the wake of Tehran's explosive pro-democracy street protests of 2009.
    "Ahmadinejad claimed that 'people feel suffocated,' and mused that to defuse the situation it may be necessary to allow more personal and social freedoms, including more freedom of the press," the cable says.
    It continues, "Ahmadinejad's statements infuriated Revolutionary Guard Chief of Staff Mohammed Ali Jafari, who exclaimed 'You are wrong! \[In fact\] it is YOU who created this mess! And now you say give more freedom to the press?!'
    "Source said that Jafari then slapped Ahmadinejad in the face, causing an uproar," the cable says.
    Looks like a General Patton moment to me.

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    The question is, did Iran know WE knew such intimate details? Now they know we did. Think about that for a second.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Am I a patriotic American, and do I only care about US secrets. Yes, shame you don't have the same personal patriotism.

    I'm not American so, really I don't care. This wikileaks thing will effect us all. In the case of wikileaks, I don't care either way really. I just love to watch the fireworks

    I've already thought about. If we knew minute details, such as Arminadinnerjacket getting bitch slapped, it probably means we have a mole operating within the highest levels of of the Iranian government.

    Now that Iran knows that we know, they activly searching for our moles and will kill them when they're smoked out, if they're not dead already.
