Insider news & Analysis in Iran

Recently an Executive Order that bans nationals of seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States for at least the next 90 days has prompted fierce debates, including arguments over who does or does not actually endanger the national security of the United States. 

On Tuesday, a video feature at the Wall Street Journal summarized the assessment given to the paper by former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates regarding the likely foreign policy confrontations that President Donald Trump would face very early in his term of office.

This was however followed closely by North Korea, as well as China and Russia.

 

In an article for the Miami Herald by Andrew Malcolm, author and veteran national and foreign correspondent, he writes about the statement made by US President Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor, Michael Flynn, that drew a diplomatic red line for Iran.

ON FEBRUARY 5, 2017, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS RELEASED A STORY REHASHING OLD AND MIS-LEADING ALLEGATIONS AGAINST THE IRANIAN OPPOSITION. THE IRANIAN OPPOSITION PROVIDED A REBUTTAL TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS IN RESPONSE, BUT THE STORY WAS NOT CORRECTED OR RESCINDED AS OF FEBRUARY 7, 2017. 

In an article in the American Thinker published on February 6, by Heshmat Alavi, journalist and activist focusing on Iran, he writes that after a week of tension between the Trump administration and Iran, Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei, has remained silent.

 In an article for Al Arabiya, Sawsan Al Shaer, Bahraini writer and journalist, writes about Michael Flynn, the newly appointed US National Security Advisor, who said on Thursday that the Trump administration was “officially putting Iran on notice.”
