Criminal Law: Iran

Iran's parliament plans to scrap stoning and amputation of a hand as punishments in a revised version of the Islamic penal code, the official IRNA news agency reported Monday. The timing of this is pretty incredible.

This legal backdrop is an excuse to make a comment on the situation in Iran. It is absolutely incredible what is going on in Iran. I have absolutely no clue what is going to happen. I'm glad the President is letting Iran handle its own affairs on this one. Our interference in what is going on in Iran would have no impact other than making us all feel self-righteous.
