Ayatullah Penn @ Friday Prayers!

Sean Penn at Friday Prayers in Tehran!

One thing you can't accuse the Islamic Republic of is having a bad information warfare department. There are two reasons the Islamist Republic is pulling this stunt:

Reviled by the Iranian people and knowing perfectly well that the overwhelming majority will not participate in elections always meant to legitimize the regime, with a bit of help from abroad (a help which has always been there, incidentally) it wants others to believe that elections in Iran are conducted as elections are conducted anywhere.

But why Sean Penn? Penn’s presence in Iran is very likely to fire up memories of pre-invasion Iraq, and as such it can be used by the Islamic Republic as a very subtle piece of propaganda implying US intentions in Iran.
