Unrest in Iran (???)

Via Instapundit, a round-up of possible unrest in Iran by Samizdata.

One point: this stuff comes from the SMCCDI, a student movement for reform. They are on the side of the angels, but I've got to say I've found a lot of their previous reports to be, let us say, overly optimistic. Sometimes just plain fanciful.

You can hold mistaken opinions as a blogger or alt-news site, but when you start publishing incorrect facts, credibility suffers big-time. Or at least SMCCDI's credibility has suffered as far as I'm concerned.

I wish everything they say is true. I just don't have much confidence that it is.
