S. Rob Sobhani, "Iranians for Bush" (2/6/02). Including Iran in the "Axis of Evil" was the right way to win the support of the ayatollah-ridden Iranian people.
Michael Ledeen, "Unnoticed Bombshell" (2/11/02). An ex-CIA agent presents evidence that Iran has "declared a secret war against the United States".
Michael Ledeen, "The Great Iranian Hoax" (2/12/02). The latest anti-American mob scene ironically exposes the weakness of the ayatollahs' misrule.
Michael Ledeen, "Iran Simmers Still" (3/15/02). Little reported signs that internal discontent with the ayatollahs has not abated - and that the Administration is paying attention.
Michael Ledeen, "The Revolution Continues" (3/25/02). As domestic opposition becomes more overt, Iran's tyrants move ever closer to terrorists of all stripes.
Michael Ledeen, "Iran on the Brink" (4/29/02). The unraveling of the ayatollahs' regime proceeds but is almost unnoticed by the West.
Farideh Tehrani, "The Truth Inside" (10/15/02). From inside Iran: "So often, we hear self- described Iran experts on CNN and reporters in America's leading newspapers explain away the dictatorship under which we suffer. We hear them talk about how young people and women still support President Khatami! No. We do not!"
Michael A. Ledeen, "Act on Iran" (10/27/02). Promises long ago made to Ayatollah Khomeini by Jimmy Carter hamstring U.S. action in support of freedom's friends in Iran.
