Khatami Heckled

How things change in eight years. Iranian President Muhammad Khatami, once the hero of his country's reform movement, has been heckled by students angry over his failure to produce changes in the Iranian political system. I still think the failure of the student movement and the reform politicians to coordinate will go down as the great failure of the past few years, and most of the blame rests with Khatami, who too often saw the young protestors as a threat to order rather than the sort of force needed to bring about change.
