46 Reps., 20 Senators Send Bipartisan Letter to President Obama Thanking Him for Speaking Out for Pastor Saeed
Robert Levinson Still Needs our help USA.
WASHINGTON — In March 2007, retired FBI agent Robert Levinson flew to Kish Island, an Iranian resort awash with tourists, smugglers and organized crime figures. Days later, after an arranged meeting with an admitted killer, he checked out of his hotel, slipped into a taxi and vanished. For years, the U.S. has publicly described him as a private citizen who traveled to the tiny Persian Gulf island on private business.
But that was just a cover story. An Associated Press investigation reveals that Levinson was working for the CIA. In an extraordinary breach of the most basic CIA rules, a team of analysts — with no authority to run spy operations — paid Levinson to gather intelligence from some of the world’s darkest corners. He vanished while investigating the Iranian government for the U.S.
The CIA was slow to respond to Levinson’s disappearance and spent the first several months denying any involvement. When Congress eventually discovered what happened, one of the biggest scandals in recent CIA history erupted.
It’s curious that Obama is choosing to go to Tehran next year, instead of right now. For one, Iran’s nuclear program isn’t slowing down anytime soon, so if he really thinks he can help the situation by talking to Iran, why doesn’t he go sooner? And secondly, Pastor Saeed is still stuck in an Iranian prison. Priorities, Mr. President. –PBN
The Kuwaiti news outlet Al-Jarida reports that President Obama is seeking to arrange a trip to Tehran, Iran next year.
“Al-Jarida has learned from a U.S. diplomat that President Barack Obama is seeking to visit Tehran in the middle of next year,” the report reads, based on a translation using Google Translate.
“The source said that the desire to visit is shared, and that Tehran and Washington are waiting for the conclusion of the arrangements prior to Iranian President Hassan Rohani issuing an official invitation to his American counterpart to visit Tehran.
“He pointed out that the most important detail that is outstanding regarding the meeting is the question of a meeting with Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and the possibility of not holding the meeting.
“The source said that Obama was waiting for the invitation to devote his new administration’s policy in the region based on the principle of non-military involvement and balance. He wants to be the first U.S. president to visit Iran since the Khomeini revolution in order to show that he is an advocate of peace and dialogue even with those who chant death to America.”
The article was originally published in Arabic.
A State Department spokeswoman did not respond to a request for confirmation of the Al-Jarida report.
But in an email, one former high ranking U.S. national security official says, “I don’t believe it.”
Last weekend, President Obama, in announcing a nuclear deal between the U.S., other countries, and Iran, said, “the United States — together with our close allies and partners — took an important first step toward a comprehensive solution that addresses our concerns with the Islamic Republic of Iran’s nuclear program.”
Obama concluded those remarks by saying, “Ultimately, only diplomacy can bring about a durable solution to the challenge posed by Iran’s nuclear program. As President and Commander-in-Chief, I will do what is necessary to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. But I have a profound responsibility to try to resolve our differences peacefully, rather than rush towards conflict. Today, we have a real opportunity to achieve a comprehensive, peaceful settlement, and I believe we must test it.
“The first step that we’ve taken today marks the most significant and tangible progress that we’ve made with Iran since I took office. And now we must use the months ahead to pursue a lasting and comprehensive settlement that would resolve an issue that has threatened our security — and the security of our allies — for decades. It won’t be easy, and huge challenges remain ahead. But through strong and principled diplomacy, the United States of America will do our part on behalf of a world of greater peace, security, and cooperation among nations.”

It seems to us here at PBN that Israel is preparing for a strike against Iran. Don’t forget, Iran’s president was quite recently boasting about his turning down of President Obama, so it would appear Iran isn’t up for talking.
When it comes down to it, a nation that feels threatened and has the ability to defend itself will and should do so. We at PBN are with Israel 100%, and we would hope our fellow Americans are as well. –PBN

Bibi Netanyahu has been a wonderful ally to The American People and to our government even when our POTUS and his Islamic allies within and without the US administration have not reciprocated in kind. The prime minister of Israel has shown himself to be the better man of the two nations. Netanyahu is warning the United States of the new Iranian president’s history of fooling its adversaries when it comes to continuing to develop nuclear technology right under our noses, not for medical or energy use, but for malicious intent to be able to silence Western Civilization’s leaders:
Israel & USA once and for all with an intercontinental ballistic missile holding fatal payloads of nuclear radiation. Our Islamic enemies continue to work towards their final millennium goals of having a Global Islamic Caliphate at all costs. Deception is an active part of their working ruse known as “Taqiyya” within the Muslim culture. Taqiyya is a sanctioned act of deception for all Muslims used to further the cause of Islam in order to deceive or trick the enemies of Islam. Time and again Islam and the Iranian leadership has fooled the UN and the current democratic imperialistic regime within the USA about its nuclear arsenal. The current POTUS, Barack Hussein Obama, and his minions in the Democratic and Socialist party, abide by their own deceptive practices usurping our US Constitution and the rule of law at every turn. ~PBN

Obama is Islamic.
Our government was designed to be of The People, by The People and for The People. But the Obama administration has made nothing but mortal mistakes (intentional?) and a sickening mockery of Our Nation, Her Constitution and our Liberties. These impostors in congress and the White House have won favor with the sycophantic left wing media are using Islam and our own against us. This administration supports those who hate our people, loathe our liberty and are hell bent on destroying us physically and financially. -PBN read more
Therefore whatsoever ye have spoken in darkness shall be heard in the light; and that which ye have spoken in the ear in closets shall be proclaimed upon the housetops. Luke 12:3
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is convening an emergency meeting Monday of his cabinet and others from the Supreme National Security Council over WND’s revelation of the Islamic regime’s secret nuclear facility.
DigitalGlobe Sept. 2012 – Khondab secret nuclear facility
According to a source in the Revolutionary Guards intelligence unit with access to Iran’s nuclear program, Iran is scrambling to find out who leaked the information. The regime is concerned about international ramifications of yet another secret site being exposed amid pressure and sanctions by the West and the International Atomic Energy Agency ‘s request for inspection and clarification over illicit nuclear activities. The source is the same person who revealed the site’s existence.
The regime has twice been caught red-handed with its covert nuclear activity – in 2002 when its Natanz enrichment facility was exposed and in 2009 with the exposure of the Fordo underground nuclear facility near the city of Qom.
Upon the revelation of the Khondab site on WND, Ahmadinejad issued two directives, according to the source – one to Heydar Moslehi, the head of the Ministry of Intelligence, and another to Fereydoon Abbasi-Davani, the head of the regime’s Atomic Energy Organization – requesting immediate investigation into the leak.
The source added that the Intelligence Ministry, which oversees the activity of all employees in the Iranian nuclear program, has begun questioning workers in Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization through its Herasat, an internal security force.
The regime fully knows, the source said, that any revelation of its secret nuclear activity under current circumstances will destroy its claim of peaceful nuclear activity and will embolden Israel’s position internationally that the regime is lying about its activity and that it needs to be confronted immediately.
According to the source, the Khondab facility houses over 2,000 centrifuges that are enriching uranium for Iran’s nuclear bomb program. More cascades of centrifuges are being made operational to add to its capacity.
DigitalGlobe images of the site have been given to organizations that specialize in Iran’s illicit nuclear program for further analysis. However, a retired imagery analyst who cannot be named has looked at two of the images and confirms that the imagery shows “a large surface installation showing characteristics of supporting a co-located underground facility.”
Dr. Peter Vincent Pry, a former CIA analyst and executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security, an advisory board to Congress, said, “The imagery clearly shows some kind of highly sensitive and fortified installation supporting a deep underground facility inside the mountain.”
