An Iranian military agent, who is a member of the feared Iranian Revolutionary Guards (IRRG) and specifically, the Basij military force, was caught trying to enter the U.S. He was sent back Tuesday.
The agent, Seyed Mohsen Dehnavi, had been granted a U.S. visa. He was about to assume residency at a Boston-based hospital as a medical researcher.
As a member of the Revolutionary Guard, he’s a terrorist.
He and his family were sent back to Iran when he was found by Customs and Border Patrol to be “deemed inadmissible to the U.S. based on information discovered during the CBP inspection.”.
Some media and John Kerry say “this is not who we are”
Some media outlets are portraying it as a doctor not being allowed to perform legitimate work. Former secretary of state and naive fool, John Kerry, a chief architect of the idiotic Iran nuclear deal, also slammed the move: “Tragic. A doctor comes to the US to save lives and this happens. This is not who we are.”
Members of pro-Iran organizations such as the National Iranian American Council (NIAC)—which has long been accused as serving as a lobbying shop for Tehran in D.C.— condemned Dahnavi’s detainment.
Other media outlets have independently identified Dehnavi as a top Basij member who was involved in efforts to suppress dissident and reformist voices in Iran.
The Basij is one of the most repressive and violent domestic organizations in Iran.
Iran is penetrating the U.S. with their radical supporters who will infiltrate our politics, our culture, our way of life.
Saeed Ghasseminejad, a prominent Iranian dissident and regional expert at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies spoke to the Free Beacon.
“Why do NIAC, Trita Parsi, and John Kerry criticize the U.S. government for not permitting a member of a terrorist organization to enter the country?” Ghasseminejad asked. “To embarrass the U.S. government, the U.S.-funded Radio Farda and VOA rushed to portray this member of the terrorist group IRGC as an innocent researcher who has been mistreated by the U.S. government.”
Investigate these groups infiltrating the U.S. says activist
Ghasseminejad called on the Trump administration to formally investigate these taxpayer-funded media outlets for pushing “pro-Tehran propaganda.”
Amir Etemadi, another Iranian dissident and Chair of the Iranian Liberal Students & Graduates, described Dehnavi as a “well known member of the Basij military organization in Iran.”
“You didn’t need to be an intelligence officer to find out who Dehnavi was,” Etemadi said. “The question is how he could get clearance from the US intelligence agencies, and how the State Department issued visa for him. I think the Trump administration should run an investigation into the case.”
Dehnavi “wasn’t the first Basij/IRGC member who has received the US visa in recent years,” he added.

At the same time, Russia and China have joined forces to undermine the U.S. throughout the world. This began under the Obama administration.
The U.S. better get its act together.
