The cell phone video recorders protected the Iranian students from having their heads cracked. The authorities wouldn’t risk the bad publicity. The film would have been on the next flight to Dubai!
This story is about the Guardian, Clinton, the Obama admin, the left trying to look like hip and revolutionary cryptologists. As if the Iranian students are so dumb they don’t know about ip addresses or how to talk. Might as well dump on the hacker.
Youre right. Many Iranians have been very savvy regarding cell phone & internet intrusions in Iran for some yrs now. Actually, they got wise 3 decades ago when landline conversations were constantly monitored in Iran (still are) by then the newly installed Mullah Regime. Nevertheless, some ordinary Iranians still take risks.
Hmm, since then, the whole thing often seems out of a Michael Jackson (RIP) Thriller. It has a story, even if nowadays banal & a tad trite, with excellent choreography!
When I recently watched this youtube clip, it kinda reminded me of the Mullah ruled Iran - this time in HD!
