Fox investigating recent disturbance in henhouse

According to the Telegraph, leaked election results are confirming that the election was stolen. According to the Washington Post, however, their super-objective-scientific poll shows that Ahamdinejad actually had the sort of support that the official figures suggest. Not to worry, the Guardian Council will sort it all out:
Guardian Council spokesman Abbas Ali Kadkhodaie stated that the council has begun investigating the validity of election results.

“The Guardian Council invites the protester candidates of the tenth presidential election to (attend) a meeting in the council and utter their views,” he told ISNA on Monday.

He also added the council will explain the verification process to the candidates.

Also, Guardian Council Secretary Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati issued a statement on Monday and asked the candidates to send their protests to the council.

Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamanei has previously asked the council to carefully examine the protests.
The Washington Post poll is interesting, but I am guessing that the truth of the election-fraud allegations will emerge eventually. After all, Juan Cole is never wrong.
