Mum on Shah

In one of his final briefings, White House Spokesman Scott McClellan dodged a question from Human Events Political Editor John Gizzi about the plans that Reza Pahlevi, son of the late Shah of Iran, voiced in a May 1 HE interview about engineering a democratic rebellion against the Islamist regime in Tehran. "[I]s the administration in regular touch with responsible opposition leaders from Iran, such as Reza Pahlevi?" Gizzi asked. Said McClellan: "Our policy is to stand with the people of Iran as they seek greater freedom [and] that’s what we continue to do. That policy has not changed. And we continue to support the people of Iran in different ways."
