“All the details have to be agreed with my advisors.” In other words, as long as Oliver Stone can serve up some free propaganda, the Thug-in-Chief can overlook the whole “Great Satan” thing.
TEHRAN, August 29 (RIA Novosti) – Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has
agreed to let Oscar-winning U.S. film director Oliver Stone make a documentary film about his life.
Ahmadinejad told journalists: “In principle I have no objections to featuring in such a film, but all the details have to be agreed with my advisors.”
Stone first made the offer about one year ago. The president had previously refused to allow filming to go ahead, saying the director was part of the “Great Satan,” a term used in Iran to describe the U.S. since the 1979 Islamic Revolution, when the despotic U.S.-backed Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi was overthrown.
Iranian authorities have in the past accused Hollywood of distorting the country’s history and international image.
