Twitter "Outs" the Basij

June 18, 2009 11:53 am: Basij-scared and cover faces The Basij have now begun to cover their faces, whereas previously they hadn’t. This indicates they are becoming more scared of retaliation from the general public, similar to Iraqi security forces. Also, we have heard that cell phone service is cut off at night. There have been efforts to identify members of the Basij who have used violence against demonstrators, through facebook and other social networking websites. It’s interesting to see the feared militias themselves becoming afraid of retaliation.
