Khamenei near death?

This is a horrible source, so I'll quote as much as I can so you don't have to click on it, but if there's anything to it, everything could change in Iran.

This story has been floating around the net for the past day or so, but this report comes from a person who is in a position to know such things. As I know very well (having been gulled into wrongly announcing Khameneis death a while back), it is easy to be misled, and Khamenei has had previous medical emergencies in the past, and recovered, but the source is excellent. Nonetheless, its always smart to apply the Reagan Caution: Trust, but verify. Im doing my best.

Here is what he/she says:

Yesterday afternoon at 2.15PM local time, Khamenei collapsed and was taken to his special clinic. Nobody except his son and the doctors has since been allowed to get near him. His official, but secret, status is: in the hands of the gods.


-snip-

Outlook is uncertain but speculation is considering that he is in coma since more than 24 hours that he may not come out of his coma and/or that he may die very soon.

If he dies it is expected that immediately a bloody clash will develop between the powers behind Rafsanjani, who will immediately claim temporary religious authority and overall control, and the powers behind Achmadinejad who will scramble in order to regain control and ensure their survival.
