Hi! Comrade,

     I don't know what to believe........IRI called many people spies: 52 American diplomats in 1979, Roxanna Saberi, Maziar Bahari, the 3 American hikers and the 2 German journalists who interviewed Sakineh's son!


Thank you for posting the article!

Lets see if she is a real spy this time!


Just so I understand this

Iran says there is a Hal(l) Talaian in Iran. A US national without a visa with camera equipement.  

US says there is no person with that name or SIMULAR name with a US passport!

And, Armenia says no one with that name can into Armenia.

SOoooooO what is the problem, put her butt in jail just like the Afgans and charge her.

It's not the equipment, but the cavity which houses it!.....!  

Never increase, beyond what is necessary, the number of entities required to explain anything.

So when you visit Iran, you can't have "advanced filming equipment".......otherwise you will be called a 'spy'.........

If I visit Iran, I will carry a cheap and simple camera!
