“MODERATE” IRANIAN PRESIDENT ON ASSASSINATION COMMITTEE
Planned 1994 Bombing in Argentina
By Harold Hutchison
Iran’s new president, widely portrayed as a “moderate,” sat on a committee that recommended assassinations and terrorist attacks to the Iranian government. The explosive report by the Washington Free Beacon reportedly ties Hassan Rowhani to a 1994 bombing in Buenos Aries, Argentina, that killed 85 people.
Rowhani had once vowed that the Iranian regime “will not hesitate to destroy the activities of counterrevolutionary groups abroad”, according to 2001 article in Time magazine.
Iran carried out over 160 assassinations from 1979 to 1999. The new Iranian president also has a close relationship with Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khameni.
