LOS ANGELES: A former Iranian official has been sentenced in Los Angeles to nearly three years in prison for violating the U.S. trade embargo against that country. Seyed Mousavi of Diamond Bar also was fined $12,500 and had his U.S. citizenship revoked Tuesday in federal court. Mousavi was an interrogator for Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Court before emigrating. Prosecutors contend he broke the embargo in 2002 by providing consulting work for a company bidding to start mobile communications, banking and leasing operations in Iran.

Fascists, murderers, torturers and all lackeys of IRI are living among us. The hell they created is so suffocating that they them self have to immigrate to greener pastures!
He should be sent to Guantanamo bay for interrogation. At minimum he may reveal names and loctions of fellow islamo facists who live among us.

Many of the terrorists of 9/11 were also given visas to enter the US despite the CIA suspecting them of terrorist activities prior to their entry into the US.

And ordinary people from the Middle East wanting to enter the US, even before the 9/11 attacks, went through rigorous background check and most often were rejected on dubious or no reasons at all.

No sane person should supress and sacrifice his own natural curiousity just to satisfy his dogmas.

Don't you wonder why he could so easily get US citizenship in the first place?
