The Strange Story of an Iranian “Defector”


Pages: 1 2

Madhi said in the film that the conference was meant to introduce the rest of the opposition leaders with the group that the U.S. had constructed, called “Circle of Friends,” in which he was allegedly appointed leader.

Before leaving Iran, Madhi held a position with the Majlis Khobregan (Assembly of Experts on Leadership) for 12 years and was a member in the intelligence division of the Revolutionary Guards Corps.

It is still unclear whether the Iranian government planted Madhi.

Yet in the meantime, Madhi dubiously played the part of the traitor turned hero, openly proud of his newfound calling to save the Iranian people.

In a Feb. 3 Reuters article, Madhi wrote: “I realized then that the regime would not evolve.” “(I joined the Green Wave) because no other organization has the capacity to link the internal opposition with the overseas elements.” he said, communicating through an interpreter.

Perhaps he fell prey to the State Department at the dismay of the Islamic regime back home, who claim to have Madhi in their custody.

Despite the broadcasted statements about Madhi’s assigned task to deceive policy makers and opposition members, Kayhan and IRNA, both regime media outlets, maintain that Madhi was “a deceived element,” who is now under arrest for his betrayal of the government and country.  They claim that the broadcast was in actuality a “confession,” something the Iranian regime has notoriously done.

D.C. policy makers and opposition members mentioned in the film and those who surround the story have denied any connection to Madhi.

Meetings with Clinton and Biden cannot be confirmed, but Madhi’s meeting with outstanding opposition leaders in Paris has been documented.

Could it be that Madhi escaped Iran, hoping to make a pretty penny offering information and his expertise to American intelligence officials, but when that plan botched, he decided to make nice with the regime back home, to allow him to go back to Iran and to mend ties with the Mullahs once again?

The bottom line is that even if all of the details in Madhi’s account are fabricated, he, as a tool of the Iranian regime, successfully cracked the opposition abroad. Now every opposition leader will look to his or her right and left and wonder who can be trusted.  Madhi lured everyone in with his expertise and defector status, and ended up an agent of the regime.

The most significant outcome is that this will not only eliminate many key players who were mentioned or who fear being outted in the future, for several reasons, but more importantly, where resistance against Iran is concerned, it will delegitimize so much of what the opposition abroad has worked hard to build, particularly since the 2009 election.

    Any opposition group outside of Iran can only be in support mode. The real change must come from within Iran itself. I don't think the people of Iran will allow there country to continue down this road toward annihilation because of the lunatics running the place now. Eventually, they'll rise up in force.

      Why do you guys always think that 'They will rise…' and that good will always win and evil will be seen for what it is? Look at North Korea. Its people will never rise again without help from the outside. And our own liberals actually doing a very good job telling our children in schools that those evil regimes like Iran are actually 'not so bad'. They have been doing it for years and now we have those former 'children' in our own government which openly negotiates with Taliban. Or Taliban does not seem so evil to them too?

    Look at Huma of the Ummah, the revert Tony Ds muslima. She is a plant in our state dept, as an employee of our Sack of State Hitlery Clinton, wife of BJ, as well as an "in" to the US Congress via her perverted creep, Tony D.

    OK, it's another botched State Dept. fiasco. This will get many opposition leaders and/or their relatives murdered. The fact is muslims are trained to deceive us and they do a good job of it. The Quran teaches muslims it's their duty to lie and deceive non believers from the time they are young. It's called "taqqiya" and they all do it. We're like naive children when it comes to dealing with muslims. Our stupid leaders keep pretending that we only need to worry about muslims who have been "radicallized" as if the regular muslims are wonderful. GO TO PART 2 NOW

    PART 2. of 3.
    People there is no such thing as moderate Islam. Understand that Islam is radical and the Quran teaches them to be radical and to deceive all non believers. Muslims who seem moderate are just muslims who aren't faithful enough yet. But the vast moderate musim pool is where future terrorists come from. You need to understand whether we like it or not we are in a war with Islam and they have delcared war on us and Israel. Obama is stupid to say "we are not and never will be at war with Islam". Giving Islam the respect and protections of a real religion is to allow our enemy the benefit of a religous trojan horse to hide inside of and come in among us with the blessings of our leaders anytime they want to. Example: None of the 9/11 terrorists had to sneak into our country to attack us, OUR STATE DEPT.. OPENED OUR DOORS TO THEM AND LET THEM COME IN AND TAKE FLYING LESSONS AMONG US.

    PART 3 OF 3.
    DON'T YOU SEE THAT ISLAM IS THE BIGGEST TROJAN HORSE IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD? All a terrorist has to do is say "I hate those radical muslims" and our government welcomes them among us with open arms. Don't you see that Islam itself is their TROJAN HORSE? Islam is the TROJAN HORSE that will bring us down by getting our enemies into our kingdom just like the Trojans got inside the ancient city of Troy with their Trojan horse? ISLAM IS OUR TROJAN HORSE!

    obama obviously flunked history, the christian nations of europe have been fighting islamic invaders for centuries, one of the earliest combat actions of the u.s. marine corps was against the pirates of tripoli. islam has been a "religion" of war and conquest from its beginnings, and they have changed, only their tactics. they cannot beat us in battle anymore, except out on the borders of civilization, so now they are trying to infiltrate and conquer by subversion. they may not win, if our people, and particularly our political leaders, will wake up to reality, but right now their chances look fairly good. look at the fall of rome, her conquerers first entered as refugees, begging sanctuary, when they became strong enough they took rome for themselves.
