Iran's Last Supreme Leader?

Color me skeptical, of course, but what Newsweek reported makes sense. Even if the clerics did not want to invalidate their own authority by removing Khameinei, he—and his subordinate Ahmadinejad—has clearly hurt Iran's interests and reputation, enough so that Montazeri's anti-Supreme Leader rhetoric is finally getting traction.

Things may change, of course, if the memory of what happened this year fades. But I suspect it won't.
