August 21, 1990

We have had a lot of that from Iran over the years, too, during the heydey of the late Ayatollah Khomeini. It is not difficult for a TV camera-wielder and an enterprising reporter to arrange such a scene. It gives demonstrators a chance to indicate their loyalty, genuine or not, and perhaps escape arrest as some type of dissident or subversive.
