Frail looking from cancer.

Frail looking from cancer. Certainly members of his staff must have noticed. Worse, it had already affected his abilities to decision-making abilities.

BTW: Habibollahi is a vice-admiral in the photo, not an admiral.

It was only a matter of months before ALL those smiles became severe frowns, with Habibollahi doing the "cut and run" to America. 

And what a stupid joke that Tabarzin affair was. 

The real Iranian naval heroes were to surface during Jange Tamili.
