Christian Amanpour of CNN says, “You said you are President of all Iranians…. Mousavi, can you guarantee his safety and why have opposition officials been arrested?”
Ahmadinejad’s reply “The situation is very good in Iran. It is the most stable country in the world. There is rule of law in this country … All the people are equal … So some people are becoming excited and having confrontations with the police force. This is like someone coming out of a stadium and getting into confrontations with the police… they will be fined.”
She and he get into an actual verbal scuffle.
He angrily replied, “I answered your question! It’s like someone who does a traffic violation! He will be fined as if he violated the traffic rules … Of course I am not happy with someone who violates the traffic rules.”
Amazing. I will update this report with a FULL TRANSCRIPTION. Stay tuned.
