The Iranian minister of intelligence, Heydar Moslehi, speaking at the Baseej National Conference, told the devoted Baseej members:
"The internet and the social networks which were created by the enemy have now become their own nemesis. Obama stated twice in the Congress and once in his public speeches that social networks were created to confront the Islamic revolution with. Fortunately these plans have been defeated. Because today as a result of the Wall Street uprising, social networks like Facebook and Twitter have been filtered in the US. The internet speed also for security reasons, has been drastically reduced by the American government, in order for them to be able to manage the Wall Street movement"
You would have thought even the brainwashed Baseej would be able to verify the above claims, but then again the Baseej doesn't ask questions, it just obeys orders, is kept in the dark and fed on crap.
