Amir misunderstanding

Allahpundit reports that Amir Taheri, who pretty much launched the story about the new law supposedly passed by the Iranian parliament that would require the country's Jews, Christians and Zoroastrians to wear colored badges to identify them as non-Muslims, is backpedalling, sort of:
He says he’s sticking by his story, which after all wasn’t a news story but an opinion column, and if other people treated it as a news story then that’s their fault for having “jumped the gun.” Errrrr…

He also says (or seems to say) he never claimed the provisions about non-Muslims had been formally enacted, only that they were being considered
It's the old "I wasn't wrong, I was too far out in front of the news cycle" excuse.
