WikiLeaks:Iran’s supreme leader has terminal cancer

ayatollah-ali-khameneiLONDON:According to a US document released by WikiLeaks and published by Britain’s Telegraph newspaper. Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has terminal cancer and could be dead “within months,” .

The memo, sent from the US consulate in Istanbul, quotes a businessman with close links to Iran’s former president Hashemi Rafsanjani as saying that Khamenei had been diagnosed with a rare form of Leukaemia.

The August 2009, memo revealed by the whistle-blowing website said.“Khamenei is likely to die within a matter of months,”

At the time, Rafsanjani was mounting a campaign against the re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The memo added,“As a result, Rafsanjani has stopped campaigning within the Assembly of Experts to challenge Khamenei, and now is focused on ‘letting nature take its course’,”

“Following the Supreme Leader’s passing, Rafsanjani will try to mobilize the Assembly of Experts to appoint him as the new Supreme Leader.

“If he is successful…he would then invite Ahmadinejad to resign and call a new election.”Hardliner Khamenei holds ultimate power in state affairs and has been a frequent critic of US policy.
