IGRC Commander Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari leaves little doubt about the Pasdaran's view toward reformist voices, including former President Khatami

In the interview, Jafari -- appointed to his post by the country's supreme leader, Ali Khamenei -- took it upon himself to outline the conditions he would set for the return to politics of reformists -- including former President Mohammad Khatami, who was elected to office twice with more than 70% of the popular vote.
"Members of the reformist camp who have not crossed the red lines can naturally participate in political campaigns," he said. "However, Mr. Khatami's success in his activities depends on his stances. Mr. Khatami did not pass his test successfully during the sedition incident and he showed a lot of support for the sedition leaders."

Sort'a reminds me of some of the interviews USAF General LeMay gave in the 60s.
