Iran's Letter to the New York Times

I'm sure glad I get to pick my clients, because I'd really hate to be the PR flack assigned to paint Iran in a good light. Take, for example, today's letter (read it here) from Alireza Miryousefi, the head of press office in Iran's mission to the United Nations. My advice to anyone having a meeting with Alireza is don't make any sudden moves, like to straighten your hair. It could cause the poor devil to flinch or even dive under a nearby desk. And to Alireza Miryousefi, you should remember what happened to Iraqi's foreign minister Tariq Aziz and ask for political asylum while you're here in the U.S.

What makes the Iranian letter to the NYT more laughable is a later story in today's Wall Street Journal (read it here) saying that "Iranian-backed hackers have escalated a campaign of cyberassaults against U.S. corporations by launching infiltation and surveillance missions against the computer networks running energy companies…"

Selah, Alireza!

Implementation suggestions for THE MORGAN DOCTRINE are most welcome. What are the "Got'chas!"? What questions would some future Cyber Privateering Czar have to answer about this in a Senate confirmation hearing?
