With international diplomacy unable to slow Iranian leader Ahmadinejad’s goal of annihilating Israel with nuclear weapons, may be a financial crisis will do him in. According to a Ynet report: “Iran’s parliament speaker has called for an investigation following a report by the national audit office suggesting some $1 billion in surplus oil income failed to be deposited in treasury. In a potentially embarrassing development for President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad before a June election, the audit report cited by local media said $1.058 billion in oil revenue in the 2006-07 budget year, had not been transferred to the treasury.”
You don’t think our friend stole the money, do you? It would be unheard of for a dictator to steal money for his own personal use, right? He chalks it all up to ‘misunderstanding’, I’m sure the money was accidentally misplaced.
