Rumors Say Ayatollah Khamenei in Coma

Sean OsborneBy Sean Osborne

Today's Jerusalem Post reports Ayatollah Ali Khamenei may be in a coma. The JP reports that this information is according to Michael Ledeen who received his information from a third party who allegedly "is in a position to know such things." According to that "excellent source" Khamenei collapsed on Monday, 12 October.

These reports (rumors) are also being carried today by the Tellegraph.co.uk, Arutz Sheva among others.

If these rumors and reports are accurate then this report may be of some utility on what lies ahead.

Hmmm. Will Israel take advantage and strike Iranian nuclear sites during a full-blown leadership crisis in Iran? Will the Ayatollah's sock-puppet president seize military control over the Assembly of Experts? Could a full-blown civil war erupt in Iran?
