One of the forged certificates was for balitarin, a site heavily used by Iranian dissidents (and run by a friend of mine). Iran has also used techniques like DPI HTTP-proxy detection and blanket prohibition of SSL connections, and has repeatedly blocked GMail, Facebook, and other popular social media sites. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to learn that the IRI had an SSL MITM program as well.
