7:24 am
>> that's righ it's a very significant move that these ve powerful clerics that are sort of unofficial ain trust of iran have come out and said tha is election ould be annulled and it not right. their move is vy, very powerful but it's symboli they have little politic out. these guys don't si in government so there's, as i said, tre's this brai trust and they take their work seouy but they can't make anpolitical moves. but it just shows how deep the spliis within the system right no >> but at the saime you wer having the iranian leaders start forcedconfessio, talk about how e people in the streets re foreign agents, u.s. agents. when you have thes religious leaders, the most revered religious leaders in iran ming out siding with people in the streets,hat does complicate tters for ahmadinejad, does it
7:25 am
not? >> very much so. itort of weakens his position as presiden these the peopl he looks up toor advice. these are the people he goes up to to consultn all matters of state and morality and lion anthey've gone strong against them but let's not forget there's also a lot of people behind them as wel clerics that are behinthem, that have stood frmly behind them. there's where a t of these people are who are firm bind ahmadineja hard-line people there. >> we want talk about joe biden's commentsn just a moment but overal in terms of the directn of the movement in iran, how does it comre histically when you look at th solidarity movement or you lo at what happened in china, is it as focused? is it as strong or is there potentially no good e to what they nt? >> well, it's much more split apart. the untry -- we've never seen the country divided in the 30
