Day after day, month after month, year after year and scandal after scandal, expose further the depth which former American President Barack Obama descended to via his dangerous amity toward the Khamenei regime.

Following the shocking reports that the Obama administration “covered up” Project Cassandra, which pertains to Hezbollah’s drug network that is active in Latin and North America, amid his “Sufi” love in the huge deal with Iran and after his destructive role in the Syrian disaster - due to his hypocrisy in favoring the Khamenei regime - the former American president stands exposed.


We are now looking at a new scandal that pertains to Obama’s flirtatious scandals with the Khamenei regime. There’s talk that a large number of the children of Khamenei regime leaders attained US citizenship during Obama’s term. Many of them were now active in Iranian lobbies in America via think-tanks, universities, organizations, media outlets and others.

Trump tweet

American President Donald Trump commented on this via Twitter saying: “Just out that the Obama Administration granted citizenship, during the terrible Iran Deal negotiation, to 2,500 Iranians - including to government officials. How big (and bad) is that?”

Trump was commenting on a Fox News report that said: “Several children of current and former Iranian officials live in the United States, including Ali Fereydoun, whose father Hossein Fereydoun is the brother of and special aide to Rouhani; and Fatemeh Ardeshir Larijani, whose father Ali Larijani, parliament Speaker.”

The report cited the statement of Iranian Member of Parliament Hojjat al-Islam Mojtaba Zolnour who revealed that while negotiating the Iran nuclear deal, the Obama administration granted citizenship to 2,500 Iranians, including family members of government officials.

Many of these young men and women who are the children of the “elite” of Iran’s ruling regime have become an active propaganda machine in favor of the Obama deal and to serve the purpose of intensifying propaganda against Arabs and Saudi Arabia in particular.

Truth, however, has now been revealed thanks to the Conservatives in America, regional and international sanctions and by confronting Iran in exposing the dark face of the Khamenei monster.

Obama’s friend and the dove of Khameneism, Hassan Rouhani, recently spoke before a crowd of Iranians in Switzerland and said: “Iran spending its income on those the Americans call terrorists is mere allegation.”

Oh really? Where were we, and where are we now?
