John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, tells LIGNET that the March 2 Iranian parliamentary elections appear to have been an exercise in corruption, with the opposition party boycotting and the press gleefully reporting high voter turnout. Ahmadinejad’s camp lost seats, yes.

But that doesn’t so much matter for the United States, Bolton says. Iran’s ambitions have not been sidelined.
