Amir Hekmati who was an former US marine was convicted of collaborating with the US.
Statement from the Hekmati Family on the news of Amir's secret conviction: It is with a very heavy heart that we receive the news that our son and brother, Amir Hekmati, was tried, convicted, and sentenced to ten years in prison on the charge of "Practical Collaboration with the American government" in a secret trial in December. This conviction is unsettling specifically because Amir was born and raised in the United States and committed no crime, choosing only to visit Iran to spend time with his ailing grandmother. Prior to receiving permission from Iran to visit, Amir submitted his application to the Iranian interests section in Washington D.C. and openly provided his military history both as a marine, and a contractor. Amir was then assured that he would have no problems entering Iran with this history. The lack of transparency in Amir's case has made both defending him against these false charges and fighting for his freedom a path full of obstacles, road blocks, and unpredictable difficulties. In a ...

Washington is abuzz about a Washington Post/AP ‘expose’ of an alleged ‘rogue’ group of CIA analysts who employed retired South Florida FBI agent Robert Levinson. He was in effect a CIA contractor to skulk out information and documentation on Russian Mafia drug dealings, Iranian terrorist and nuclear programs. See WaPo national security alert, “Ex-FBI agent who disappeared in Iran was on rogue mission for CIA”. Also see our recent Iconoclast post about Iranian imprisonment of former FBI Agent Robert Levinson, U.S. Marine veteran Amir Hekmati, and Iranian-American Pastor Saeed Abedini and release of Iranian diplomats and nuclear program scientists by our government. The expose on the Levinson disappearance on Kish Island on March 9, 2007 has all the elements of a byzantine plot in a Brad Thor thriller. The Levinson CIA expose appears to follow the apt turn of phrase the more things change the more they remain the same. Doubtless there will be new requests for investigation of the 2007 Levinson . ...

WHY SHOULD WE BE SURPRISED, REDUX?: THE ‘HISTORIC’ PHONE CALL WAS A HOSTAGE NEGOTIATION By Michael Ledeen, PJ Media, September 29th, 2013 - 3:21 pm advertised, Hassan Rouhani was the star of the week at the Great UN Circus. He knew it, and he treated his American hosts with arrogance and contempt, and was duly hailed as a peace-seeker [by America’s mainstream media]. He spent hours and hours with diplomats (just not American ones), with journalists, with academic apologists such as Gary Sick, as well as with anti-American rabble rousers like Louis Farrakhan; but he [insisted] he didn’t have time [to speak to] President Obama. No matter. When the Iranians told the White House that Rouhani could squeeze in a few words on the phone, Obama eagerly called him up, thereby giving the journalists and apologists the opportunity to use their prepared language about “historic conversation,” etcetera etcetera and so forth. Rouhani’s basic message was to say “you’d better be nice to me, or you’ll . ...

Suspected Iranian spy with Belgian passport held in Tel Aviv Israeli police and Shin Bet officers detained Iranian-born Ali Mansouri, aka Alex Mans, on Sept. 11 at Ben Gurion airport in possession of photographs of the US embassy in Tel Aviv. Under interrogation, he described how he was enlisted and run by the Al Qods clandestine brigade of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards for special operations against American and Israeli targets. Ali Mansour entered Israel on his Belgian passport in the guise of a businessman. He gained dual citizenship by marrying a Belgian woman and divorcing his Iranian wife. Mansouri admitted he was under orders to set up straw companies as a base for Iranian undercover activities. His handlers promised him a fee $1 million.

New York—President Barack Obama, in his phone conversation with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani Friday, asked for the release of Iranian-American Pastor Saeed Abedini, along with Amir Hekmati, another American imprisoned in Iran.
News from US The United States and Iran took a historic step toward ending more than three decades of estrangement on Friday when U.S. President Barack Obama and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani spoke by phone and agreed to work on resolving global suspicions that Tehran is trying to build a nuclear weapon. The 15-minute call capped a week of seismic shifts in the relationship that revolved around Mr. Rouhani’s participation in the annual U.N. meeting of world leaders. The night before the two leaders spoke, U.S. and European diplomats hailed a “very significant shift” in Iran’s attitude and tone in the first talks on the nuclear standoff since April. Mr. Rouhani and Mr. Obama spoke while the Iranian President was in his car and headed to the airport to fly back to Tehran, with Mr. Obama at his desk in the Oval Office. Mr. Rouhani’s aides initially reached out to arrange the conversation, and the White House placed the call. The last direct conversation between the leaders of the two countries w ...

Billy Graham Writes Letter to Iranian President on Behalf of Pastor Saeed Aimee Herd (Sep 25, 2013) "On September 26, the one-year anniversary of Pastor Abedini's imprisonment, thousands will attend prayer vigils in more than 70 U.S. cities, calling on your country to release this husband, father and servant of God. I join them by respectfully asking you to release Pastor Saeed Abedini from prison. Such an action would, I believe, have a positive impact in our nation, and might well be perceived by our leadership as a significant step in reducing tensions." –Billy Graham With the new president of Iran present at the United Nations this week, it seems like many are seizing the moment to address him regarding various concerns relating to his country and governmental operations.
