During today’s press gaggle, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said he made a mistake by calling the just-sworn-in Mahmoud Ahmadinejadthe “elected leader” of Iran:
MR. GIBBS: Well, let me correct a little bit of what I said yesterday. I denoted that Mr. Ahmadinejad was the elected leader of Iran. I would say it’s not for me to pass judgment on. He’s been inaugurated, that’s a fact. Whether any election was fair, obviously the Iranian people still have questions about that and we’ll let them decide that. But I would simply say he’s been inaugurated and we know that is simply a fact.
Forgive me for missing yesterday that Gibbs said even that. The blog of the National Iranian American Council called Gibbs’ initial remarks a “gaffe.”
