The Obama/Biden administration was in bed with #Iran’s regime from day one.

Meaning in 2009.

Far before the notorious 2015 nuclear deal that provided Iran access to $150 billion in credit & $1.8 billion in unmarked cash.

First watch this:
Video/audio/docs out soon.

One look back:
By the summer of 2012, US intel/security officers in Libya warned their chain of command that #Iran was preparing a terrorist attack on the US compound in Benghazi.

The Obama/Biden admin knew. And did nothing.
“The CIA, the NSA, and Joint Special Forces Operations Command operatives in Benghazi and in Tripoli were actively monitoring Iranian operations in Benghazi in the months leading up to the attacks.”
Green Beret Colonel Andy Wood sent a cable to his commanding officer in June 2012 that the Iran-backed militia—Ansar al Sharia—had received their funding from Iran and were sending their wives and children to Benghazi.
Throughout the Obama admin, officials with knowledge of Iran’s presence in Benghazi, including security contractors who defended the CIA Annex in a 13-hour battle, were repeatedly threatened with prosecution if they revealed what they knew.
Among them was the then-director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, Gen. Michael Flynn.

Gen. Flynn placed the regime of Iran on notice in the early days of the Trump presidency.
This is one reason why I still believe Iran’s regime has specific interests in the ongoing ambush that is targeting Gen. Flynn.
Documents, which include a wire transfer for 1.9 million euros from a known Quds Force money-laundering operation in Malaysia, clearly show how Iran used the international financial system to funnel money to its Benghazi operations. ImageImageImageImage
The person the Iranians put in charge of recruiting, training and equipping the Ansar al Sharia jihadi militia was a Lebanese man named Khalil Harb.

He was a senior Hezbollah operative, well-known to Western intelligence agencies. Image
As operational plans for the Benghazi attacks accelerated during the summer of 2012, Iran dispatched IRGC Maj. Gen. Mehdi Rabbani to Benghazi under cover of an Islamic Red Crescent medical team.

kentimmerman.com/darkforces.htm Image
Iran’s media claimed the Red Crescent team was “abducted” to cover their tracks.

1st report: August 1, 2012
2nd report: August 29, 2012

Benghazi attack: September 11, 2012 ImageImage
A US Africa Command (AFRICOM) briefing slide from the summer of 2012 shows money and weapons flowing from Iran into Egypt and Libya, but it and other AFRICOM documents relating to Iran’s presence in Benghazi have consistently been denied to journalists and outside groups
Qassem Soleimani was involved in the Benghazi attack.
“In Libya, Iran wanted to block US influence, which they saw as a threat… They saw the uprising against Khadafy — and the Arab Spring more generally — as an opportunity to accomplish this.”
The Iranians arrived in Libya, staged a kidnapping w/ allied militias to create a distraction, leaked reports to operatives that they were transferred back to Iran to cover their tracks from Western intel teams, & went on to prepare for the Sep 11 attack on the US consulate.
“The team in operational command in Benghazi were Qassem Suleimani’s people,” according to former Baghdad deputy chief of station John Maguire. “They were a mature, experienced, operational element from Iran. These guys are the first-string varsity squad.” Image
The faked kidnapping in Benghazi was a typical Quds Force op.

They used a local militia that on the surface detested Shias, just as they used the Taliban in Afghanistan and manipulated al Qaeda.
Iran used recruits from Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen, Turkey & Egypt to finance, train & equip the radical group Ansar al-Sharia in Libya, careful to show their hand only to a select few.

To those on the ground, the Iranian operatives would look & speak just like Arabs or Turks. Image
By mid-August 2012, planning for the attacks on the US diplomatic compound and the CIA intelligence base in Benghazi had been in the works for two months.

Recall the dates of Iran’s state media reports in tweet #11 of this thread.👇
Evidence suggests that the Benghazi attacks were acts of state-sponsored terrorism against America ordered by Iran’s highest authorities, financed by Iran’s oil sales, and involving multiple Iranian regime agencies & banking/commercial entities in Malaysia, France & Libya. Image
The big picture: around 35,000 declassified emails show Obama/Biden administration
-knew of Iran supporting Assad oppressing Syrian people
-appeased Iran, Iraqi militias, Iran’s puppet government in Iraq
-collaborated with Soleimani that led to crises across the Middle East ImageImageImageImage
The Obama/Biden admin knew of
-Iran’s role in a plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador in Washington
-Hezbollah directly coordinating its role in Syria with Iran
-Iran’s secret nuclear activities in underground sites ImageImageImageImage
Obama administration
- knew of Iran’s rigged 2009 presidential election
- knew of Hezbollah’s role in the Thailand terror attack
-sought “direct diplomacy” with Iran in January 2009
-described “engagement” with Iran as “very interesting” in August 2010 ImageImageImageImage
Obama administration
-knew of Iran lobbyists’ role in whitewashing IRGC’s crimes
--Vali Nasr
--Suzanne Maloney
--Gary Sick
-sought to provide “Bigger ‘carrots’” to Iran’s regime ImageImageImageImage

@tparsi founded Iran lobby group @NIACouncil & enjoyed unprecedented access to the Obama/Biden White House prior to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

“Former Iranian Official, Pro-Tehran Lobbyist Hosted at Obama White House Dozens of Times”
@tparsi @NIACouncil 25)
Iran's lobby group NIAC enjoyed very strong ties with the Obama/Biden administration mainly through Ben Rhodes, the mastermind behind the infamous "echo chamber." ImageImageImage
"the Obama administration derailed an ambitious law enforcement campaign targeting drug trafficking by the Iranian-backed terrorist group Hezbollah"
"... when it comes to the Iran deal, the Obama administration took lying to new heights..."
How is the Obama/Biden administration remembered?

"... secretly trying to give Tehran access to the US financial system to convert billions of dollars in assets into Euros as part of the Iran nuclear deal..."
"... the Obama administration granted citizenship to 2,500 Iranians, including family members of government officials, while negotiating the Iran nuclear deal..."
Obama & Biden provided $1.8 billion in unmarked cash that "has been traced to Iran’s backing of Houthi rebels seeking to take power in Yemen."
"It is now historic fact that reporters in Washington, D.C., were lied to and fooled by the Obama Administration with regard to the Iran nuclear deal."
Listen to the extent of Obama/Biden's disastrous appeasement approach with the mullahs ruling Iran.

Former Iranian MP Alireza Zakani says the Obama administration gave them $1.7 billion in cash, with $400 million in suitcases.
Benghazi whistleblower Nick Noe (@scienceismymuse)

-three former CIA Directors involved in keeping bin Laden alive in Iran, moved him from Iran to Pakistan for Obama's trophy kill
-Payments to Iran were related

Full interview

CBS was to reveal that Osama bin Laden was hiding out in Iran for years after 9/11 and operating al-Qaeda.

However, the White House had it shut down in late 2010 & early 2011 while Obama was gearing up for his 2012 re-election campaign.

"With Iran on its heels and peace spreading in the Middle East, now is the time for America to press its advantages and ratchet up the pressure against its declared enemy."
Honestly don't know why FOX deleted the article linked in tweet #29 of this thread.

Anyhow, here's another link to that article on FOX's website.

So, #Iran's IRGC launches a drone attack in NE Syria, killing one American contractor and wounding several U.S. troops.

But MSM is hyped about a recent Saudi-Iran agreement and wants you to trust Tehran, the world's leading state-sponsor of terrorism.

Think about that. ImageImageImage
Biden & his admin claim they "will take all necessary measures to defend our people."

However, "Iran has launched 78 attacks on US positions in Syria since January 2021" with minimum response from the Biden admin.

Why? To revive Obama's failed nuke deal.
US warplanes likely targeted
—Harabesh area of Deir Ez Zor, E Syria, near a military airport
—ammo depot of #Iran's IRGC militia near the former Nasr Center building
—site in the vicinity of Port Said Street in Deir Ez Zor center

"Dictatorship & Revolution: #Iran- A Contemporary History"

The most common slogan in #IranRevolution identified in these protests is “Death to the dictator!” and “Death to the oppressor, be it the Shah or the mullahs!”
@Mahifeh23 .@giannagancia
I would like to thank @STRUANSTEVENSON for his important new book. I think it's very important to fight against the theocratic regime in #Iran & it's important to wake up all the people about what really is happening in Iran.

With this thread I aim to raise attention about Twitter’s ongoing shadow-banning.

After a series of back-and-forth letters, @TwitterSupport informed me that my account “has been permanently marked as potentially sensitive.”

Any explanation? None.

It gets even more interesting:

“There is currently no way to appeal a decision by Twitter that permanently changes your account setting to Mark media you tweet as containing material that may be sensitive…” Image
Through the years, Twitter has informed me of a few tweets they wanted deleted. I have complied every time.

My work focuses on Iran, the regime’s crimes and corruption, the West’s appeasement policy, and Iran’s network of apologists/lobbyists.

This has angered some people.
