AND OUR NEXT PRESIDENT...:

Iran's Ex-President Slams Ahmadinejad's Foreign Policy: Report (AFP, 9/14/08)

Iran's former president Mohammad Khatami has criticised the government's confrontational foreign policy, saying it plays into enemy hands and harms the country, a newspaper reported on Sunday. [...]

The reformist former president also hit out at Ahmadinejad's administration for "presenting wrong statistics" about its economic achievements over the past three years.

There has been speculation that Khatami, who was president from 1997 to 2005, may seek a third term in office in 2009.

Ahmadinejad, who put social justice on top his agenda when he campaigned for president, has come under fire from reformists and conservatives alike for his expansionist economic policies and rising inflation.


...needs to accept the olive branch when he offers it.
