Final Version

Reports from Twitter:


Ali Larijani is still the only candidate for presidency of Principlist faction of Majlis

More insider info/insight about the conciliation plan:
3rd insider report on draft of conciliation plan:

URGENT: Nat. Sec.Counsil upped National DefCon to RED: awaiting Foreign military attack. IR Armed Forces mobilizing for defense.

DefCon RED is not a trick. They are dead serious about their assessment, it comes from central command of IR Armed Forces.
Re-enforcement units are dispatched to several frontiers, mainly Persian Gulf

Iran drones have spotted suspicious enemy movement: US/Saudi troop activities & US Navy Armada closing in on Gulf
This is likely just to show Iran their readiness in light of (Qods force backed) failed coup attempt in Kuwait
"Red" Defense Condition alert related to readiness of defense forces, not a war condition/war mobilization

Here's how source defines defcon red: RED mean full combat readiness for territorial defense, anticipating imminent attack. In cases like that, frontiers are reinforced, counter measures taken, entire defense force ready, leaves canceled

Ahmadi Moghadam:
"Police has no confrontation with student protests in its agenda. They protest but without violence.
Attacks on Unis were because of unrelated forces intervention"
Last week they were going to confront students, protestors, anyone who dares look suspicious... and now this :)

An insider’s view on what the plan really is about:

Tehran police chief Gen Rajabzadeh said there were no arrests at Tehran university Monday night

Salamnews quoting a source says 400 businesses that officially or unofficially were monetary contributors to Mousavi's presidential campaign have been identified

Today, national unity is of outmost importance

The Green movement united the people who were dissatisfied with the establishment
An Internet Network in cyber space has been formed which has proven quite effective
We had not issued any statement regarding Qods day, however, despite all the warnings we
witnessed mass presence of marchers. This was the direct result of this cyber network

Poet & writer Mahboub Boudaghi arrested month 1/2 ago in Zanjan. Reason for arrest or charges unclear

Kudistan Governor: Confessions of those arrested for recent assassinations will be aired on TV

Haddad Adel whose name was on the National Unity Plan published yesterday by Farsnews, denies ever being involved in the plan

Intel. Ministry confirms having seized a shipment of antiques belonging to a diplomat

Tabnak says the recent natural gas contract with Pakistan has been drafted using & is subject to French laws

Saeed Malekpour's wife: "A caller said you are being watched & could be arrested & brought back to Iran from Canada"
"My husband who is computer expert, is being forced to collaborate with site"

Green Derby (2 Oct): Doors open from 7AM/security patrols to stop ticket scalpers/no-one allowed to exit after entering

Tehran head of judiciary:
Military tribunal most probably in charge of Kahrizak case

20 people who received sentences were found guilty of damaging public property/no political figure among them
Most of the accused will be released on bail in near future like Hajarian

Interesting twist: Judiciary questions 3 judges including Mortazavi re Kahrizak, then says military in charge of Kahrizak file!

AN's deputy, Rahimi has filed complaint against 3 newspapers and websites for publishing news on his fake degree

Mowj: When asked about Rafsanjani's "crisis exit plan", AN said what crisis? I don't see any problems. You should ask Rafsanjani about it.

AN says nothing wrong with IRGC take over of Telecom, was done according to the law

3 law & political science professors at the Uni of Allemeh have been forced into early retirement

WINEP, is a U.S. Think Tank that has been urging sanctions & Military action on Iran. Senior Member: MOHSEN SAZEGARA! Shame!

Everyone, Google WINEP=Washington Institute For Near East Policy to find out SAZEGARA is senior member of this bunch of warmongers

Ghanbari criticizing "missing parts" of Truth Finding Commitee (Classified parts)

Ghanbari criticizes that especially Kahrizak, Burials & Karoubi's allegations are not in public/unclassified truth report
This is a confirmation of sorts of relatively old leaks re: classification (via MikVerbrugge)
Partial Translation:
MP Ghanbari:

"Parliaments Fact Finding Commission's report should only reflect the truth

In preparing their report the FFC should only consider the need for people to know the truth
Revealing the facts (prisoner abuse) will only prevent them from happening in the future
We should not just blame the lower level people for Kahrizak. The real culprits, the ones who
ordered these actions should be revealed & punished

The rape charges in detention centers that Mr. Karoubi is talking about are extremely
important. The citizens expect to see a report from the Parliament on these matters
If their (FFC) report is not satisfactory, we will use other means to generate a complete report
We hope that our citizens will be satisfied that the FFC report is truthful & satisfactory"
Ghanbari is the third MP within the last 2 days warning the Parliament's Fact Finding Commission to be truthful in their prisoner abuse report. Do they know something we don't? (via persianbanoo)
