Iran Snapshot: Ahmadinejad is Censored...By the State Broadcaster

On Wednesday, we reported that President Ahmadinejad had staged an impromptu press conference to tell journalists that, while he was maintaining silence about the recent arrests of his allies (though he made sure to declare they were "politically motivated"), there was a "red line" against any imposition on the work of the Cabinet. In other words, no detentions of his inner circle....

When the State broadcaster IRIB showed Ahmadinejad's remarks, it cut out the passage about the "red line". Not only has the President's staff set the record straight on his official website, they have posted the original, uncut video.
