irancommentary.wordpress.com/2019/04/23/ira…
2)”Ali Nasiri, a former brigadier general in Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), previously head of this entity’s counterintelligence apparatus, has reportedly fled from Iran.”
3) Let’s check another source.
6) What is the source of this amazing intel.
7) Look at all this juicy info after all.
—“senior Iranian military officer”
— IRGC (bad/terrorist)
— ran away (how?)
— took secret docs revealing what Iran plans to do
8) “Photo credit Iranian media”
9) “Now an American website calling itself the Islamic State of Iran Crime Research Center, whose offices are located at 1101 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Suite 300, reported...”

10) “...that Brigadier General Ali Nasiri had fled to the West after a fallout with Hossein Taeb, the representative of the Supreme Leader in the IRGC.”
11) Anonymous “Iranian regime” source - Nasiri leaked “classified documents and information to Israel and the US regarding Iran’s nuclear program and secret missile bases.”

Where’s this info from again?
12) Islamic State of Iran Crime Research Center (ISICRC)
1101 Pennsylvania Ave NW
Suite 300
Washington, DC

But if you google that address.
13) You get a Jewish crisis PR firm that doesn’t disclose its clients.

14) “To protect our clients’ confidentiality, Rotenberg Associates does not publish its client list. Referrals are available upon request.” prboutiques.com/rotenberg-asso…
15) “Rotenberg Associates is a boutique, attorney-led strategic communications and crisis management firm. We provide decades of legal, business, and strategic communications experience to our national and international clients”

INTERNATIONAL
16) “nationwide network of current and former public officials, lawyers, cybersecurity experts, forensic accountants, private investigators, and media and opinion leaders.”
18) Who set up the “Islamic State of Iran Research Center” headquartered at a Jewish crisis communications firm?

isicrc.org
19) Who is the “admin” behind the website, the logo and the content? isicrc.org
20) “Men ordered not to look at women during Ramadan” 😂😂😂
21) “Comments off”
22) “America must not back down against Iran”

“comments off”
23) oy oy oy
24) Hossein Salami is now in charge
25) “Jafari [that’s the previous head terrorist] declared in an open letter that ‘the people of Iran’ would never allow their officials permission for negotiations and meeting with the Great Satan.’ [that’s us]

“It remains to be seen how outspoken Salami will be in the future.”
26) These headlines man
27) So here is our original story, dated April 22, 2019.

28) Amy K. Rotenberg bio.

29) Disclaimer: There may be another reason that the Iranian place and the PR place are apparently co-located.
30) Amy Rotenberg is also the PR rep for Washington Hebrew Congregation, which is currently embroiled in a scandal.

washingtonpost.com/local/educatio…
31) “The director of a preschool ensnared in multiple D.C. government investigations and a lawsuit has been placed on administrative leave amid allegations that a teacher at the school sexually abused toddlers.”
32) Questions raised here:

1. Since we don’t know if Roterman made this website, are we entitled to know?

2. How to insulate policy from PR-made news?

3. Should PR firms be required to disclose some clients?

4. Do we have enough regulation around PR reps who are also lawyers?
33) (End.)
*Typo in #32 - should be Rotenberg.
