Someone must have wanted a “Von Hoffman award”

Yesterday, I pointed out The Dish’s incredible prediction, or assumption, that the Iranian regime couldn’t continue to blame America for the Ashura protests, as we are now in an Obama presidency. AS wrote:

It’s all an MKO terrorist plot! From Press TV:

A source with the Iranian Intelligence Ministry has announced the arrest of a number of Mujahedin Khalq Organization (MKO) terrorists in anti-government protests that occurred in central Tehran.

But they couldn’t blame the Great Satan. Not as long as the neocons are out of power.

That was the news yesterday according to the neocon-centric universe of The Daily Dish. In contrast, the lead story on PressTV’s website today is “Ahmadinejad says protests, ‘US, Israeli scenario’ ” :

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Tuesday said that the US and Israel were behind the anti-government protests on Ashura.
Describing the deadly events on Ashura as a “nauseating play,” President Ahmadinejad said “Americans and Zionists are the sole audience of a play they have commissioned and sold out.”

“The Iranian nation has seen many such events,” President Ahmadinejad was quoted by the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) as saying.

I would have thought this position was easily predictable by anyone who’s read anything about contemporary Iran.
