When he was talking, he was lying, There were a bunch of lies

Just recently, Ahmadinejad has said in an interview with ABC network that Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani had never been sentenced to death by stoning. Her son, Sajjad, a 22 year old transport worker, has challenged him to a debate on this.

Human Rights Watch says Ashtiani, 43 and a mother of two, was first convicted in May 2006 of having an “illicit relationship” with two men following the death of her husband and was sentenced by a court to 99 lashes. Later that year she was also convicted of adultery and sentenced to be stoned, even though she retracted a confession which she claims was made under duress.

Iran says it has put the stoning on hold for now also has indicated Ashtiani could be hanged for her conviction of playing a role in her husband’s 2005 murder.

Stoning was widely imposed in the years after the 1979 Islamic revolution, and even though Iran’s judiciary still regularly hands down such sentences, they are often converted to other punishments.

The last known stoning was carried out in 2007, although the government rarely confirms that such punishments have been meted out.

Western powers pressed Iran on Tuesday to enter wide-ranging talks about its disputed nuclear program, with France telling Tehran this was the alternative to “costly” sanctions on the major oil producer.

They made clear at a meeting of the U.N. atomic watchdog that the Islamic state must address broader concerns about work the West suspects is a veiled quest to develop bombs, and not just seek more talks on a proposed swap of nuclear material.

But for one moment think about Sakineh case and how he lies about stoning, How Obama’s government and western countries can trust Ahmadinejad’s government? In day time they say its night time now and want to make people to believe it also, that’s Ahmadinejad’s government.
