Image Shows Leader of Iranian Basij at Brit Embassy Riot

Redah Naqdi-basiji_leader_uk_embassy.jpg

Here's an image from the Arabic version of al Arabiya showing Redah Naqdi (transliteration), the leader of the Basij Forces. The implication being that the illegal storming of the British embassy was done under the direct orders of Ayatollah Khameini.

Thanks to Ferd.

UPDATE
: Oops, it looks like the name of the guys is Karim Jalali, a Quds Force Officer. At least that's what other publications are saying.

Which is worse, given that the Quds Force works for the Iranian government in a direct capacity while the Basij are a "militia" that only work for the government in an indirect capacity.
