CNN, ever loyal water carriers for the Democrats, are playing an episode of Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown where he goes to Iran and visits people and eats the food. The show only makes a few references to the Basji, the government and no references at all to the Iranian government's support of terrorism, nuclear program or propping up of the Syrian regime. Showing one side of the story to downplay other aspects of the Iranian regime.
Kind of ironic when the biggest story *should* be the payment of $400 million dollars in cash to free four American hostages.
Nothing to see here, move right along...
Excellent pints.The regime admitted today that they had executed a nuclear scientist for spying.https://www.yahoo.com/news/iran-nuclear-scientist-us-spy-mystery-reportedly-executed-093152564.html
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran executed a nuclear scientist who defected to the U.S. in 2009 and later returned to the Islamic Republic under mysterious circumstances a year later, authorities said Sunday, acknowledging for the first time that they had secretly detained, tried and convicted a man authorities once heralded as a hero.
Shahram Amiri vanished in 2009 while on a religious pilgrimage to Muslim holy sites in Saudi Arabia, only to reappear a year later in a series of online videos filmed in the U.S. He then walked into the Iranian interests section at the Pakistani Embassy in Washington and demanded to be sent home.
In interviews, Amiri described being kidnapped and held against his will by Saudi and American spies, while U.S. officials said he was to receive millions of dollars for his help in understanding Iran's contested nuclear program. He was hanged the same week as Tehran executed a group of militants, a year after his country agreed to a landmark accord to limit uranium enrichment in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions.
