An Iranian journalist has defected to the West and he’s brought some shocking insight to how the nuke talks are going and whose side the Obama administration is on.
Amir Hossein Motaghi, who managed public relations for Mr Rouhani during his 2013 election campaign, was said by Iranian news agencies to have quit his job at the Iran Student Correspondents Association (ISCA).
He then appeared on an opposition television channel based in London to say he no longer saw any “sense” in his profession as a journalist as he could only write what he was told.
“There are a number of people attending on the Iranian side at the negotiations who are said to be journalists reporting on the negotiations,” he told Irane Farda television. “But they are not journalists and their main job is to make sure that all the news fed back to Iran goes through their channels.
And here’s what he said about the negotiations:
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.
This explains why France has been outraged at how the negotiations are going, and why Netanyahu has had to tell Congress the information Israel gathered from their intelligence assets. No wonder Saudi Arabia believes it can’t trust the Obama administration not to leak information to Iran.
It’s getting more and more obvious that Obama is selling out America to Iran. But are enough people paying attention?
