Ahmadinejad criticizes Obama as opposition vows to fight on

In Iran, no widespread street protests were reported on Thursday, almost two weeks after the disputed presidential election. Opposition candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi continued to criticize Iran’s leadership on his Web site and vowed to pursue his challenge to the election. The declared winner, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, spoke out as well, aiming his criticism at the United States and President Barack Obama.

Arang Keshavarzian, an associate professor of Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies at New York University and an editor of the Middle East Report Journal, joins Martin Savidge to discuss news coverage of Iran and what other forms of protests might emerge.
