One of the more disturbing stories today is not neccissarily one of protest in Iran, but about the technology that the Iranian government is currently using to track rebellious citizens and arrest them. Where did they get such technology you ask? Why, Nokia and Seimens just couldn't wait to sell it to the Islamic regime. Apparently profit is valued far above people's rights and pricacy. Read the full story here at the Wall Street Journal. Great reporting as usual.
