This week, Iranian spy on behalf of the west Shahram Amiri was hanged by the government in Tehran. The Iranian judiciary spokesman Mholamhosein Mohseni Ejehi explained, “This person who had access to our country’s secret and classified information had been linked to our hostile and No. 1 enemy, America, the Great Satan.”
Amiri, who worked on the Iranian nuclear program defected to the West in 2009, came back to Iran in 2010 and was treated as a CIA kidnap victim, and then was tried and executed.
His name appeared in Hillary Clinton’s unsecured emails. According to the Associated Press, Amiri was described as “our friend” in an email from Richard Morningstar, former State Department special envoy for Eurasian energy. Jake Sullivan, a national security staffer for President Obama, referred to Amiri thusly: “The gentleman…has apparently gone to his country’s interests section because he is unhappy with how much time it has taken to facilitate his departure.”
Senator Tom Cotton (R-AK) explained:
“[I]n the emails that were on Hillary Clinton’s private server, there were conversations among her senior advisers about this gentleman. That goes to show just how reckless and careless her decision was to put that kind of highly classified information on a private server. And I think her judgment is not suited to keep this country safe.”
So, was Hillary responsible for Amiri’s death?
That’s unclear. The Iranians apparently arrested and tortured Amiri before the revelations in the press. But it’s certainly possible they had access to Hillary’s server, and that they used that information to convict Amiri. More likely, Amiri went back for unspecified reasons – perhaps the government pressured his family – and he was treated as a hero so that Iran wouldn’t look bad, then quietly abducted and tortured, and then eventually hanged.
It doesn’t really matter all that much, in the end. Hillary obviously compromised national security. How many American assets have been compromised in ways we’ll never know?
But that won’t matter, either. The media have decided that Hillary must be president, and Democrats simply don’t care. They don’t care that Barack Obama paid a $400 million ransom to the Iranians for our hostages. All they care about is the leftist agenda.
