44. NYT: Bush Says Iran's Elections Ignore 'Basic Requirements'
http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/17/politics/17prexy.html...

"On the eve of the election in Iran, President Bush declared on Thursday that the electoral process there had failed to meet "the basic requirements of democracy" and that the "oppressive record" of the country's rulers would undercut the legitimacy of the vote."

-snip-

"For weeks, the administration has been debating how to deal with the election in Iran. But Mr. Bush's statement on Thursday, one official noted, made no reference to "regime change..."

Is any of this starting to sound a little familiar?
