Some will laugh at Ledeen for sticking to the story he was given, but I’d caution against such mockery. As I wrote myself, I supported Ledeen in concluding that something bad had happened to Khamenei’s already poor health.
Nothing else can explain his absense from sight, particularly after the massive Jundullah bombing that killed senior Revolutionary Guards officials.
Ledeen confirmed that Khamenei met with Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan “at the very last minute” at his home (where the doctors remain), on October 28.
That is an absence of 22 days, and if Ledeen’s timeline is correct, a state of comatose for about 16 days. It should also be mentioned how odd it is that the Erdogan-Khamenei meeting happened so late.
Ledeen writes: “This suggests to me that the doctors worked very hard to prepare Khamenei for his appearance, which would otherwise have taken place much earlier.”
One more important note: I’ve been receiving reports from Iranians about big plans for November 4, as reported on WorldThreats.com, which is the anniversery of the taking of American hostages at the embassy in 1979.
Ledeen says he’s also receiving the reports, but adds that Russian experts have been hired by the Iranians to jam the Internet and other transmissions.
