Khamenei to Mousavi: Pursue Complaints Legally

Iran's Supreme Leader Khamenei has agreed to investigate allegations of voter fraud. Well, that's how it's being spun. According to AFP, as reported by Iran state television on Sunday, he told Mousavi "to pursue his complaints over the election through legal means."

It's looking like the government is panicking over the people's responses to Ahmadinejad's "victory." The announcement of an investigation seems ot have been a ploy to buy some time and let people cool off a bit, but it's the government was playing chicken with the people, and the people didn't blink. Now they know just how much power they have.
