THE HARD-LINERS LAST GASPS:

Iran president criticizes regime's arrests of journalists (AP, November 6, 2015)

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani criticized in remarks published Thursday the recent arrests of journalists amid an ongoing crackdown on expression by the country's hard-liners. [...]

"We shouldn't detain one or two people, here and there, while exaggerating the case and saying there is a 'current' (US) infiltration in Iran," Rouhani said.

He also said that he hopes everyone in the country understands that it's not permissible to "abuse" Khamenei's statements for "personal, group and factional interests." Khamenei has the final say on all major policies.
