One thought on “Reese Erlich”

  1. I saw Reese Erlich in a recorded talk on C-SPAN2 a bit ago. In his discussion, he told of how on the very day that he was in Tehran, there was a gathering of women for a Woman’s Rights celebration. He led the audience to believe that this showed how open and wonderful it was there. The people were celebrating the International Day of the Woman.
    What he failed to mention, was soon the armed police came and arrested those in the demonstration. Many women were arrested, imprisoned, tortured and raped by jailers. To this day November 2007, some women are STILL being held in prison.
    What a hypocrite he is to stand before people, and not mention what REALLY happened. Just WHAT is HIS agenda, because it surely isn’t the truth. Check out
