From Allahpundit's "too good to check" file

I’ve written more than one post over the years touting claims that this guy had died, which is another way of saying that all reports from Iranian dissidents should be greeted with robust skepticism.
But even so, this doesn’t seem that unlikely under the circumstances.

Reports from Iran indicate that the Supreme National Security Council has ordered a complete check-up of the jet which is on standby to fly Ayatollah Sayyid Ali Khamenei and his family to Russia should the situation in Iran spiral out of control. The order, to the Pasdaran Revolutionary Guard Corps, was dated on Sunday, 27 December. A fax containing the order was sent to Dutch-based Shahrzad News…

Some Iranian MPs are calling for demonstrators to be sentenced to death. Various opposition figures have been arrested including the sister of Nobel peace prize laureate Schirin Ebadi.
