Meet Amir Abbas Fakhravar

Have you heard of Amir Abbas Fakhravar? If you haven’t yet, you surely will. He’s the Iranian “student dissident” being promoted by such notable pimps as Richard Perle, Michael Ledeen, and the American Enterprise Institute as a part of their effort to forment action against Iran.

Laura Rozen, one of the few remaining real journalists, reports that Fakhrvar credentials are questionable. According to a number of bon fide Iranian dissidents she interviewed Fakhjrvar was jailed for “unchaste” rather than political acts, was a jailhouse snitch, was able to make phone calls from the Iranian jail where he was housed to a Los Angles based dissident Iranian radio program, and that he “escaped” the country on a commercial flight to Dubai.
