Update on Dr. Vali Reza Nasr: Baztab, the VEVAK website, carried an article by former Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC/Pasdaran) chief Mohsen Rezai (now Secretary of the IRI's State Expediency Council) on October 26, 2006 praising Nasr's rise to prominence as an expert on Shiite political power. The article notes that both Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice have met with Nasr, but that Nasr's advice that the US should accept Iran as a regional power, and start negotiations and come to terms with Iran's leaders has not yet been accepted as yet. Rezai calls Nasr's policy recommendations as "realistic and inclusive" as they accord the Shiites more power, as opposed to Orientalist Bernard Lewis' approach that gave greater control to the Sunni with hopes to democratize Iraq and the region. Rezai's article has disappeared from Baztab in the last few days, but it seems that he feels Vali Nasr is doing a good job. Given Rezai's background and his current position in the regime, we should wonder why Nasr is receiving his approval. Looks like Vali is telling it just like Tehran wants it told.
Professor Daniel M. Zucker is a Chairman of Americans for Democracy in the Middle-East.

IRAN: EDITOR DENOUNCES GOVERNMENT CONTROL OF MEDIA

http://www.adnki.com/index_2Level_English.php?cat=CultureAndMedia&loid=8.0.363603962&par=0


Tehran, 27 Nov. (AKI) - The editor in chief of Iranian news agency ILNA (Iranian Labour News Agency) says the government is seeking to control all the media in the country. "Our journalists are not admitted to accompany the president on his trips nor attend press conferences after we criticised some policies of the current government," said Massoud Heydari, whose news agency is close to Iranian reformists.

The editor in chief of ILNA has been indicted 20 times in the past few weeks after publishing reports in which the government was criticised for its handling of the economy and rising unemployment.
