Reading a Scenario!

by HHH on

Looks like he had memorized all these. No one other than the Savak chief knew how many departments Savak has and what activities it's involved in. This man is pretending he ran the Savak and wrote the book on Savak!

می‌دونستیم با دروغ سرکار آمدند ولی‌ تا این حد دروغ یادمون نبود ! نه یکی‌ نه دوتا چقدر جفنج گفتند ! یکی‌ بگه که اون زمان چطور این حرفا باورش شد با عقل جور در نمیاد مثلا وقتی‌ میگفتن زیر زمین کاخ نیاوران شکنجه می‌شه و شب‌ها شاه میره پایین تماشا ...چطور این جفنگیو باور کردید آخه ؟ ......  جمهوری خواهان (ایرانی‌) به کدمتون می‌شه اعتماد کرد تا روزی که الام نکنید دروغ گفتید و دروغهای دیگران باور کردید و اشتباهی‌ بزرگی‌ بوده ضد منافع مملکت به شما اعتمادی نیست چون باز فردا دروغ خواهید گفتد
