Free Kian! 

My friend Asieh (who is Persian) sent me this story from the Fars News Agency. Apparently, my colleague from Soros/Open Society (and fellow Ph.D. from Columbia), Kian Tajbaksh, has been forced to confess after identifying him as an agent of the Soros network trying to "cause a velvet revolution" in Iran. According to Asieh, Kian is being used as a pawn to get to Khatami, to prove that he is in bed with mysterious foreign powers.

Ahmadinejad's government is getting nuttier by the day. In the meanwhile, I hope better sense will prevail and Kian will be released soon, especially since he was released from Evin prison just two years back after another brief spell of incarceration.
