Senator Clinton accepts money from supporters of Iranian Mul

by Mark5019 / January 20, 2006 6:24 AM PST

Yonkers, NY ? Senator Clinton has accused President Bush of downplaying the threat from Iran while accepting money from supporters of the Iranian regime.

Wealthy businessmen Hassan Nemazee and Faraj Aalaei are associated with the American Iranian Council, a pro-regime anti-sanctions group. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, Namazee has contributed $4,000 to Clinton's reelection while Aalaei has given $1,000.

The press describes their lobby this way "the American-Iranian Council [AIC], a pro-regime lobbying group trying to get Congress and the Bush administration to lift the trade embargo on Iran." (Insight, 3/25/04)

Hillary Clinton is also raising money from Gati Kashani, another figure linked with the Mullahs.

On its website, the Iranian American PAC noted, "On Friday June 3rd, Iranian American friends of the Hillary Clinton Senate re-election campaign hosted a fundraising event in honor of Senator Clinton. The event took place at the home of Gita and Behzad Kashani in Los Altos Hills, California."

I suppose they could give the money to the terrorists, they would put it to good use.

I don't know what you see when you click on the link you provided, but I get a page asking people to donate and support some person named Spencer.

If you check the url in your first post it is not displayed properly.

Here is where your link takes me

failed to notice that the entire URL was not present because the forum software cut off a portion of it.

Had you simply noted the fact and copied and pasted the entire link you too would have seen the article (press release) linked to.

The failure here is yours so don't complain about it to others who have no control over your actions or inactions.

I think it a bit less then credible
by grimgraphix / January 21, 2006 2:26 AM PST

When Hillary's opponent - Republican candidate John Spencer - and his web site, is used as a news source to make accusations about links to terrorists.

I'm no fan of Ms. Clinton's but at least quote some one with a bit of journalistic integrity. I mean whats next? quoting campaign TV commercials as news?

I'd like to think the fine people on SE are better than this.

Why less than credible?
by Edward ODaniel / January 21, 2006 6:05 AM PST

The press release provided all the information necesary to anyone interested in proving its accuracy or inaccuracy.

As it happens anywhere you care to check supports the accuracy of the press release. Here is but one of many:

Matter of fact Insight Magazine has another article showing how much Joe Biden has taken from the same group.

"When we learned that Sen. Biden was planning to hold a fund-raiser at the California home of Dr. Sadegh Namazi-khah, we immediately contacted his office to express our dismay," a prominent Iranian-American activist tells INSIGHT. Why dismay? "Dr Namazi-khah is well-known in the Los Angeles area for his support of the ruling clerical regime in Tehran and is one of the regime's leading unofficial lobbyists in America. We thought that Sen. Biden might not know his background. Getting the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to appear at this event will certainly be seen by the regime in Tehran as a show of support."

On the eve of the fund-raiser, which brought an estimated $30,000 into Biden's re-election coffers, a Biden staffer told the activist that the senator's staff "had all the facts necessary to make a decision," and he was planning to attend the fund-raiser despite the protests.

John Kerry likes them a lot also:

Matter of fact, there are a whole lot of the ultra left "progressives" who are infatuated with the pro-mullah American-Iranian Council -

Hey, the Clintons seem to have a pattern
by dirtyrich / January 22, 2006 2:20 AM PST

of accepting and giving aid to established enemies of the state (terrorists, China, etc.). The Republicans at least try to further US interests (which may or may not work out), but the Clintons have no problem with selling out themselves and the country for their own personal gain.
