Report: Iranian Supreme Leader Is Dead–
The Ayatollah was hospitalized earlier this week.
Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is hospitalized in serious condition. May be suffering from prostrate cancer.
The Jerusalem Post reported:
Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is currently hospitalized in serious condition at a hospital in Tehran, according to unofficial reports.
Khamenei is suffering from prostate cancer that has reportedly spread to the rest of his body.
Earlier this week, the French newspaper Le Figaro quoted Western intelligence officials as saying that the cancer was discovered about ten years ago. “The cancer is in stage four, in other words has spread.” Doctors estimate “he has two years left to live.”
On September 8, Khamenei underwent surgery and it was then that doctors discovered the fatal situation.
In Iran, however, his condition is not public, and only those close to him know how bad the situation is. One such person is one of his six children, his 45-year-old son Mugtaba Khamenei, who has major political clout in the country.
Fairy tales used to begin with “Once upon a time”, now they begin with “Obama says”. We noted earlier that the White House has known since at least August, despite what Obama says here.
President Obama was asked about Hillary Clinton’s secret emails during his trip to Selma, Alabama Saturday and said he did not know his Secretary of State was using a secret account until he read it in the news. The president also noted he does not follow Clinton’s practice of secrecy.
“Mr. President, when did you first learn that Hillary Clinton used an email system outside the U.S. Government for official business while she was Secretary of State?” asked CBS’s Bill Plante.
“The same time everybody else learned it, through news reports,” Obama said.
Plante asked if Obama was disappointed to learn of Clinton’s practices. “Let me just say that Hillary Clinton is and has been an outstanding public servant,” Obama answered. “She was a great Secretary of State for me. The policy of my administration is to encourage transparency, which is why my emails — the Blackberry I carry around — all those records are available and archived, and I’m glad that Hillary’s instructed that those emails about official business need to be disclosed.
