He wrote “After a decade of trying to cover Iran in the most neutral tones, often giving it the benefit of the doubt, I know nothing is better at sullying its reputation than the Iranian system itself.”
Above is the justification of Jason Rezaian for filing a suit demanding one bullion dollars from Iran. The Iran based Washington Post reporter, who is now in the United Sates, was taken hostage by the Islamist fascists and released as part of a billion and half dollar of untraceable cash ransom the Islamist appeaser-in-chief Obama paid his captors.
Number of questions need to be raised:
- is it the job of a “reporter” to give “benefit of doubt’ in reporting, or his/her job is to report facts as they are and leaving the interpretation, giving it benefit of doubt or not, to the consumers of news, the people?
-is it ok for a “reporter” to interchangeably use Iran and the Islamist fascists as it suits his/her point of view and not reporting facts as they are?
-is it the job of a “reporter” to worry about the reputation of a country in reporting facts?
According to the Islamist fascists’ Washington based NIAC Lobby; Jason Rezaian was introduced to the Washington Post by that lobby.
Rezaian attacks all the opposition to the Islamist fascists and while in Iran his “reports” were more of a touristic brochures mirroring the promoting the image of the Islamist fascists as their lobbyists and partisans routinely do.
Filing a law suite, demanding redress and punitive monetary damages for the wrongs done to the victims of the unreformable, warmongering and uber-international terror sponsoring Islamist fascists is laudable.
However, in good conscience, one can not on the one hand promote the very monster done him/her despicable wrong and on the other hand sue it for money. lets not forget, the hostage takers don't pay a dime, the money Jason wants comes out of the empery pockets of hapless Iranian people who are the number one victims of the Islamist fascists, the same system Rezaian makes a point of participating in its legitimacy bestowing sham elections.
Question is, at long last, when are the Rezaian type “reporters” gonna have some shame?
Airtight sanctions - which includes oil - a la against the despicable South Africa apartheid, works. U.S. lawmakers get to it.
