An operative for the world’s top sponsor of terrorism lectured U.S. military leaders and politicians at a high-level conference last month, provoking representatives to demand answers about who approved such a speech.
Seyed Hussein Mousavian previously worked on Iran’s nuclear negotiating team, recently shifting to a position at Princeton University as a Middle East security and nuclear policy specialist.
This year’s U.S. Strategic Command Deterrence Symposium took place from Aug. 16-17 in Omaha, Neb., where Mousavian spoke, in what a department spokesman defended as providing “insight into an opposing viewpoint.”
Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) and Rep. Mike Rogers (R-Alaska), leaders of the Senate Armed Services Committee and chair of the House Armed Services Committee, respectively, have launched a probe to learn who in Strategic Command approved Mousavian’s participation.
They stated: “Providing Mousavian with an officially sanctioned U.S. Government platform for spreading historical falsehoods and Iranian regime propaganda is profoundly ill-advised.”
