I found David Miliband’s post on the Iran – elections to be very helpful and balanced. Here’s a little clip:
People ask whether or not we are doing enough to back Mousavi supporters. Fair question – Senator John Kerry also addressed this issue in a typically eloquent piece today. The fact is that those on the streets have not asked for us to be their spokesmen. We need to stand for our deeply held commitment that it is for the Iranian people to decide on their government, and we will continue to call for peaceful respect for media and protestors. The fact is that many Iranians have severe doubts about the outcome announced on Friday. They deserve to have their doubts addressed.
