As if things were not already complicated, Khatami has decided to drop by
In what capacity is Khatami visiting
He's definitely not a representative of Ahmadenijad the Terrible! I'm sure that if Khatami had his way, he'd throw that maniac into a jail cell that's no bigger than a functional toilet.
Could it be that Khatami is actually representing the United Nations?
The Lebanese press does not appear to mention that possibility, but a couple of days ago Khatami visited
Does his visit signal Hizballah's involvement in domestic Iranian politics?
Khatami did visit Fadlallah as well as Nasrallah. Fadlallah, as far as I am aware of, is known to have come out against Khomeini's philosophy of Willayat al Faqeeh (and consequently against the whole notion of the "Islamic Republic").
Moreover, a very interesting comment Khatami made during his visit was that we should not be surprised if we caught the Iranian and American governments talking about resolving certain crucial issues.
I'm not too sure how difficult it was for Hizballah's leadership to swallow that little slip of the tongue (if indeed, that is what it was).
And finally, what can we conclude from this visit?
Update: According to Future TV, the Iranian Foreign Ministry (which was just purged by Ahmadenijad the Terrible) has declared unequivocally that there are no negotiations or discussions taking place between the Iranian and American governments. The statement also declared that Iraq's security is an internal Iraqi affair, not an Iranian or an American affair.
The Iranian clerical establishment, in my humble opinion, is suffering from an extreme bout of schizophrenia!
