2009 Iranian election commentary

In June of 2009, Patrick Doherty, the deputy director of the Foundation's American Strategy Program, co-wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post where he argued that the result of the 2009 Iranian presidential election may not have been fraudulent, based on a poll sponsored by Terror Free Tomorrow and the New America Foundation. Jon Cohen, of the Washington Post's polling department, argued for wariness "of a poll taken so far before such a heated contest, particularly one where more than half of voters did not express an opinion."
