Iranian Defector Says Obama/Kerry Are Working For The Iranians

Pro-Hassan Rouhani Iranian editor defects while covering nuclear talks in Lausanne

Amir Hossein Motaghi says he no longer sees any “sense” in his profession as he could only write as he was told

He could work for the New York Times now, and do exactly the same thing.

In his television interview, Mr Mottaghi also gave succour to western critics of the proposed nuclear deal, which has seen the White House pursue a more conciliatory line with Tehran than some of America’s European allies in the negotiating team, comprising the five permanent members of the UN security council and Germany.

The US negotiating team are mainly there to speak on Iran’s behalf with other members of the 5+1 countries and convince them of a deal,” he said.

Not surprising, since Kerry started his negotiating career working for America’s enemies in North Vietnam and Nicaragua.

    ‘Send in the Clowns’, is a beautiful song, but a rotten foreign policy…

    And Kerry is still selling out America, with the aid of the Traitor in Chief.

    Now thats what I’d call a whopper of a conspiracy theory!

    • It is an observation from an Iranian observer, not a “conspiracy theory”

      • Bryan says:

        There has been a long history of defectors who will say anything to suit somebodies agenda.
        The most notable recent example is ‘curveball’ who alleged that Saddam Hussein had active supplies of weapons of mass destruction so as to facilitate the disastrous Iraq war .

          There is even a longer history of people like you that will believe any opinion from any source that they believe supports their own strongly held opinions.

          Gail Combs if you don’t like the Guardian link on ‘Curveball ‘ then follow some of the thousands of other links like

          To think that Obama and Kerry are working for Iran is seriously delusional.

          What concerns a climate sceptic like myself is the recent series of foreign policy projects that are seriously against the National Interests of the western nations.
          Was arming Ben Laden in Afghanistan such a great Idea?
          Think of 9/11 before you reply
          Was the invasion of Iraq such a great idea?
          Think of ISIS before you reply
          The overthrow of Gaddafi was made possible by Hilary Clinton and Obama giving air support to the Islamists.
          The ongoing mess in Libya is hardly in the interest of the USA
          The Libya mistakes was only narrowly avoided in Syria.
          Clinton and Obama were gung ho and only public opinion in the UK and USA stopped another misguided intervention in a civil war on the side of Islamist crackpots

          Perhaps the biggest current mistake is the intervention in the civil war in Ukraine.
          The USA backing (and even instigating) the overthrow of the elected government by right wing and even Nazi elements.
          Whackos like McCain would lead the world into Nuclear war with Russia.
          Folk in the USA need to get a grip on reality before its too late.

        • David A says:

          Bryan your outlook lacks even broad nuance. Bush and Iraq is very different the Obama and Iraq.
          (Not saying either was brilliant, but reasons and objectives were different, and Obama actions destroyed any chance of a stable Iraq.)

          Let me make an analogy for you Do you recall the Obama selling of Guns to drug cartels?
          The progressive lie was that this was an extenuation of the Bush policy. It was not. The Bush policy never lost a weapon, and was canceled for fear of losing the rifles. The Obama policy apparently never tracked the rifles period, and lost them.

          The only logical rational for such incompetence is the liberal hope of pinning violent crime on assault rifles made in the US, and using said publicity to regulate US firearms, something Obama was aggressively pursuing at the time of the weapons scandal.

        • gator69 says:

          The Bush ‘Wide Receiver’ scheme was also coordinated with the Mexican government and did not result in the death of a Us Border Agent and hundreds of Mexicans, it was scrapped early on as it was not getting the results intended. Obama’s ‘Fast and Furious’ was unknown to the Mexicans, was responsible for hundreds of dead Mexicans and killed a US Border Agent, and just kept going anyway.

        My dad’s favorite one is the story of the Glomar Explorer, which was ostensibly for deep ocean exploration, but just a cover for the recovery of a sunken Soviet submarine.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Azorian
        “Azorian” (erroneously called “Jennifer” after its Top Secret Security Compartment by the press)[2] was the code name for a U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) project to recover the sunken Soviet submarine K-129 from the Pacific Ocean floor in the summer of 1974, using the purpose-built ship Hughes Glomar Explorer.[3] The 1968 sinking of the K-129 occurred approximately 1,560 nautical miles (2,890 km) northwest of Hawaii.[4] Project Azorian was one of the most complex, expensive, and secretive intelligence operations of the Cold War at a cost of about $800 million ($3.8 billion in 2015 dollars).”

    A traitorious President, the worst in the history of every living person today.

    That’s not really a suprise to me. As an outsider, I’ve thought for years that if you were actually trying to screw the country up (as opposed to just being incompetent), then you couldn’t do much worse than Obama.

    [And I wouldn’t care if he was black, white, purple or orange – he’s just a dangerously incompetent fool.]

  5. US foreign policy needs a medical advisory for all that try to make sense of it.

  6. B says:

    It may look that way to a reporter. But the goal is to sell a war to the american people. To sell the war they have to sucker Iran into making a move to do so. At the very least a move that they can lie about. This is how it works in the USA. Sucker the government of another nation into taking an offensive action against the USA or just lie about something and the war happens. The goal is to gain control of Iran or wreck it or both but they need cover for it. Iran must be the bad guy and the people running Iran have been very good at not doing anything that will sell a war. They’ve had people killed and done nothing to avoid war. Remember the US military destroyed one of their airliners and they did nothing to strike back. They know the game the US federal government plays.

    Kerry is a member of Skull and Bones, The Council on Foreign Relations, and at least reports to the Trilateral commission ( http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2014/05/02/damn-right-i-taped-kerry-s-apartheid-talk.html ). Who do you think he really serves? Hint: Not Iran.

    • gator69 says:

      You obviously have not been listening to the words of the Iranian leaders. They are not seeking peace, they seek world domination with the help of other Arab nations. If you are unaware of this, I’m sorry, but it is an indisputable fact.

      I know it’s the height of fashion to claim America (and the Joooooos!) is a war monger, but start paying attention to what the Arab states are telling their own people.

      The ‘crusading ‘Europeans were not paranoid war mongers either. They watched traditionally Christian lands being attacked and forcefully converted to Islam for 450 years before the first crusade took place.

      Thomas Jefferson was also not a nut, he simply grew tired of paying of paying 10% of our GDP as ransom to the Barbary pirates (Muslim) and formed the Marines.

      On December 14, 1799, one of the greatest Americans who ever lived passed away: George Washington. Upon receiving news of his death, the Pasha of Tripoli, Yusuf, sent word to President John Adams that custom demanded that when a great leader dies from a tributary state, which it regarded the U.S. as being, a tribute-gift must be made to the Sultan of Tripoli. Yusuf’s estimate of Washington’s value was in the amount of $10,000.

      In 1800, the U.S. ship, George Washington, sailed along the Mediterranean to pay its annual tribute to Algiers. But the Bey of Algiers ordered Captain Bainbridge to sail on to Constantinople instead, to deliver the consignment of tribute directly to the Turkish Ottoman Sultan himself. To add insult to humiliating injury, Bainbridge was also made to take down the American flag and raise up the Algerian colors in its stead, aboard the George Washington.
      “Upon viewing the Americans’ weakness, the other Barbary States stepp ed up their blackmail demands.” 7
      By the spring of 1801, when Yusuf still did not receive his monetary “gift” from the U.S. for the death of George Washington, he sent for the U.S. consul to be brought before him. After making the consul kiss his hand, the Pasha proclaimed that the annual tribute that the U.S. was to pay Tripoli, would now be raised in the amount of $250,000; plus $25,000 in goods of his choice. Refusal to pay up would be taken as an act of war. On May 14th, he ordered that the flag staff at the American consul be cut down.

      Your shallow knowledge of history has made you say some really dumb shit.

      • gofer says:

        • Neal S says:

          Skeeter does ‘get it’. But too many of us just don’t understand whose side he is on. It isn’t actually that hard to figure out. Just ignore everything he says, and watch everything he does.

      • rah says:

        Jefferson helped make his own bed on that one. He always supported a coastal Navy instead of real blue water Navy before he was president. To him a coastal Navy was adequate for defense and he could not foresee any need for offensive actions over seas.

        Then when he became president he found out that because of the threat to commerce he needed the very thing he had fought against.

        Even the British, with the largest Navy in the world at the time were paying the tribute. But the amounts charged their ships were less because the Muslims knew that if Britain got really serious they could crush them and end their Blackmail, slavery, and ransom activities which were their greatest sources of income.

        But the US having a very small blue water Navy was perceived as weak by the pirates and so their demands for tribute from US ships were much greater than those the British paid. And if the Tribute was not paid they would steal the ship and hold crew and any passengers for ransom.

        • gator69 says:

          No doubt. Jefferson thought we could be an island, an agricultural entity unto ourselves. But the office of POTUS, and Muslim aggression changed all that.

          An Axis of Evil

          Morocco, Algiers, Tunis, and Tripoli were the North African seaports that came to comprise “the Barbary States”. It became their habit to terrorize ships along the Mediterranean, and even further on. They kidnapped, murdered, ransomed, and enslaved merchant ships with impunity. If not sold into slavery or ransomed, Christian sailors could find themselves rotting away on a diet of starvation in the dungeons of the Pirate States. According to Joshua E. London,
          Piracy was deemed an acceptable and important component of the al-jihad fi’l-bahr, or the holy war at sea, and the ta’ifa, or community, of seamen became integral to the Muslim struggle with Christendom,”

          By 1662, these Muslim pirates- Barbary corsairs- had refined piracy to a sophisticated, highly disciplined and well-organized racket. And,

          “In that year, England revived the ancient custom of paying tribute, which meant that corsairs agreed to spare English ships for an annual bribe paid in gold, jewels, arms, and supplies. The custom quickly spread to all countries trading the Mediterranean.”

          Not just England, but all European powers paid bribes and tributes to the Barbary rulers in order to avoid having their ships boarded and ransacked, and their citizens enslaved. France paid 200,000 annually, to Algiers alone. Britain, up to 280,000! When the United States gained its independence from Britain, it also lost the protective umbrella of Britain’s protection payments to the Barbary rulers.

          America Faces its First Major Foreign Policy Crisis

          By the end of the Revolutionary War, America was desperate for trade. The British navy cut off any possibility of trade with Canada, the West Indies, and with the rejected Motherland, itself. Its economy in near ruins, the fledgling democracy was in dire straits. Militarily, it did not have a naval fleet. The Continental Navy was disbanded in 1784 as a cost-saving measure. So it was, that in 1783, the seafaring terrorists belonging to the sovereign Barbary States, the Barbary Corsairs, unprovoked, demonstrated how they recognized America’s newfound sovereignty by attacking American merchant ships which no longer sailed the Mediterranean under the aegis of the British crown.

          An American brig, the Betsey, was captured the following year by Moroccan pirates, and its crew put to slave labor. Shortly after that, the ruler of Algiers declared war on the U.S. Vessel after vessel was plundered and crews taken hostage. At one point, rumor had it that Benjamin Franklin, on a voyage from France to Philadelphia, was kidnapped by the Barbary Corsairs. It caused quite a sensation, even if it were untrue, for the problem of the Musselmen pirates of the Barbary States was the talk of the day.

          Confronting the Dilemma of State-Sponsored Terror on the High Seas

          In 1784, Thomas Jefferson was minister to France, and John Adams minister to England. They had the approval of the Continental Congress to negotiate for treaties with the Barbary States. For the life of them, they could not understand why they were so hated by these Muslim States.

          And so in London, after an initial private meeting with him by Adams, both Adams and Jefferson confronted His Excellency, Abdrahaman, Tripoli’s ambassador to London, who told them:
          “America was a great nation, but unfortunately a state of war existed between America and Tripoli. Adams questioned how that could be, given there had been no injury, insult, or provocation on either side. The Barbary States were the sovereigns of the Mediterranean all the same, he was told, and without a treaty of peace there could be no peace between Tripoli and America. His Excellency was prepared to arrange such a treaty…The sooner peace was made between America and the Barbary States the better. Were a treaty delayed, it would be more difficult to make. A war between Christian and Christian was mild, prisoners were treated with humanity; but, warned His Excellency, a war between Muslim and Christian could be horrible.”

          Bill Bennett, in his new book, “America, the Last Best Hope”, describes it this way:
          The Ambassador answered us that it was founded on the Laws of the Prophet, that it was written in their Koran, that all nations who should not have answered their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as prisoners.

          Joshua E. London’s description of the meeting in his book:

          “The response was unnerving. As Adams and Jefferson later reported to the Continental Congress, the ambassador said the raids were a jihad against infidels. Muslim privateers felt “it was their duty to make war upon them [non-Muslims] wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could as Prisoners, and that every Mussleman [Muslim] who should be slain in Battle was sure to go to Paradise.”

          The Americans now had two choices: pay tribute or fight the pirates.”

          Abdrahaman made it known that peace with all the Barbary States might amount to 200,000 to 300,000 guineas. Because it was such a vast amount, and Congress had only guaranteed them 80,000, they had to refer back to Congress.

          “We ought
          not to fight them at all,
          unless
          we determine to fight them forever.”
          -John Adams

          The Republican pacifist, Thomas Jefferson, came away from this encounter, mongering for war as a matter of honor, and made an appeal to John Adams. Adams agreed with Jefferson in principle; but America, without a navy and the funds needed to carry on a war, decided it would be cheaper to go the example of the European nations, and pay into the extortion racket set up by the Barbary Corsairs, rather than opt for war. Adams cautioned Jefferson, “We ought not to fight them at all unless we determine to fight them forever,”

          Prophetic words, perhaps?

          Appeasement is Not the Answer

          Once America began paying ransom for hostages, and tributes to Barbary Corsairs, things only intensified and worsened. The U.S. now found itself having to pay other States along the Barbary Coast, besides the ones who initially began the attack campaigns in 1783 and 1784. By the time Thomas Jefferson took office as America’s 3rd President, the United States had paid out 2 million to the Barbary States. At the time, that amounted to a fifth of our 10 million federal income.

          All the while we were extorted out of large sums of money, U.S. merchant ships still fell prey to Muslim pirates.

          Leftists never learn…

    The Mideast cesspool should be left to Eurotards and Turkey to clean up now. They are chiefly responsible for today’s mess.

Israel can take care of themselves but we should defend them anyway.

  9. gofer says:

    “An ambitious man might make his own aggrandizement, by the aid of a foreign power, the price of his treachery to his constituents.” Thus did Alexander Hamilton warn the American people, in Federalist No. 75, against allowing the president to make treaties alone.

    Hamilton, while a supporter of executive power, nevertheless argued for the Senate’s treaty role, because “it would be utterly unsafe and improper to intrust that power to an elective magistrate of four years’ duration.”

    It would be unsafe, he said, because even the most virtuous individuals, with the best of intentions, would fall prey to the temptations that negotiations with foreign powers would certainly provide.”
    -Breitbart

    With 1.4 billion users, the social media site has become a vital source of traffic for publishers looking to reach an increasingly fragmented audience glued to smartphones. In recent months, Facebook has been quietly holding talks with at least half a dozen media companies about hosting their content inside Facebook rather than making users tap a link to go to an external site.

    Such a plan would represent a leap of faith for news organizations accustomed to keeping their readers within their own ecosystems, as well as accumulating valuable data on them. Facebook has been trying to allay their fears, according to several of the people briefed on the talks, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were bound by nondisclosure agreements.

    Facebook intends to begin testing the new format in the next several months, according to two people with knowledge of the discussions. The initial partners are expected to be The New York Times, BuzzFeed and National Geographic, although others may be added since discussions are continuing. The Times and Facebook are moving closer to a firm deal, one person said.

  13. Gail Combs says:

    Bryan says: ….
    To think that Obama and Kerry are working for Iran is seriously delusional.
    …..

    Obama and Kerry and for that matter the Clintons ARE NOT working for Main Street USA. That is all that really matters. The fact they are traitors to the people of the USA can be seen by looking at recent results of their policies objectively. Since the group they are working for is also working with the Islamists at this time they therefore are working with Iran.

    Obama of course is hamstringing US manufacturing even further, gutting the US military while building up a domestic Homeland Security coordinated police force.

    Bill Clinton is the guy who set up the foreclosure mess that crashed not only the US but the world economy when he signed five new banking laws. Clinton is the guy who got the World Trade Organization ratified and then got China accepted as a member. Clinton is the guy who exported US technology and manufacturing to China including military technology like missile guidance systems. link Since then the US economy has dive bombed, and our trade deficit has grown by leaps and bounds. In 2012 the goods trade deficit with China hit a new record, $295.5 billion, just shy of $300 billion an annual of 8.2% increase. In 2012 the trade deficit was 3.7% of U.S. GDP. Prior to the signing of WTO the USA was an net exporter not a net importer.

    So what did the Director-General of this new World Trade Organization have to tell us?

    Where is globalization headed? This is probably the central question of our time.

    Have we adapted to the “one world” we have created? Have our cultures, approaches, institutions and imaginations caught up? Are we trying to manage the globalized world of the 21st century with a system — and a mindset — designed for a century that has faded away?….

    Can we balance the need for a sustainable planet with the need to provide billions with decent living standards? Can we do that without questioning radically the Western way of life? ….

    At the same time, globalization is blurring the line between national and world issues, redefining our notions of space, sovereignty and identity….

    This raises a final challenge: How to provide global leadership? Mobilizing collective purpose is more difficult when we no longer face one common enemy, but thousands of complex problems. The Cold War was about the clash, not just of geopolitical interests, but of big ideas….

    The reality is that, so far, we have largely failed to articulate a clear and compelling vision of why a new global order matters — and where the world should be headed. Half a century ago, those who designed the post-war system — the United Nations, the Bretton Woods system, the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) — were deeply influenced by the shared lessons of history.

    All had lived through the chaos of the 1930s — when turning inwards led to economic depression, nationalism and war. All, including the defeated powers, agreed that the road to peace lay with building a new international order — and an approach to international relations that questioned the Westphalian, sacrosanct principle of sovereignty — rooted in freedom, openness, prosperity and interdependence.

    But the end of the Cold War produced no similar search for a new approach, a narrative we could all share. On the contrary, the Soviet collapse tended to reinforce the status quo. It encouraged the belief that we had reached the end of our policy debates…..
    http://www.theglobalist.com/pascal-lamy-whither-globalization/

    So Pascal Lamy, EU big wig and former Director-General of the WTO flat out states the goal is to destroy national sovereignty and institute world ‘governance’ He even goes on to talk of the EU as a template. There is one place where attempts to deal with these challenges have been made and where new forms of governance have been tested for the last 60 years: in Europe. The European construction is the most ambitious experiment in supranational governance ever attempted up to now. It is the story of a desired, delineated and organized interdependence between its Member States.

    War is a great way to get everyone rooting for the home team Lamy even states that if you read between the lines. War is also a great way to get laws passed that people would never put up with during peace time as Bill Nye pointed out in that video featured on IceAgeNow.

    Also do not forget that the Malthusians think there are way, way too many people. War, especially a nuclear war is a great way of getting rid of a lot of people. If I am correct and they actually still believe glaciation is headed our way and soon, wiping out the northern USA and EU and Russia and China is no biggy.

  15. Ah… it all makes sense now… the Obama Regime just wants a deal and he’s irritated by Israel… Prefers dictatorships… this explains his behavior towards Netanyhu and the recent release of Top Secret documents about Israeli Nukes!!

    If Israel can have them… why not Iran?? Whats the difference….

    “There is a rank due to the United States, among nations, which will be withheld, if not absolutely lost, by the reputation of weakness. If we desire to avoid insult, we must be able to repel it; if we desire to secure peace, one of the most powerful instruments of our rising prosperity, it must be known that we are at all times ready for war.” –George Washington (1793)
