According to the cable, Ahmadinejad surprised the Supreme National Security Council by taking a liberal posture on opposition protests. The president allegedly argued that people felt “suffocated,” and that allowing more social and personal freedoms, as well as more freedom of the press, would help to defuse the situation.

Chief of Staff Mohammed Ali Jafari apparently disagreed. The cable, dated February 11, 2010, reads:

According to source, Ahmedinejad’s statements infuriated Revolutionary Guard Chief of Staff Mohammed Ali Jafari, who exclaimed “You are wrong! (In fact) it is YOU who created this mess! And now you say give more freedom to the press?!” Source said that Jafarli then slapped Ahmedinejad in the face, causing an uproar and an immediate call for a break in the meeting, which was never resumed.
