Debra Cagan Has to Go

It was only the other day I wrote a post on my blog on how much harm has been caused to our people by unthoughtful remarks made by US officials in the last three decades. Ever since the Carter administration, there seems to be some kind of competition amongst the white house staff, on who can come up with the most outrageous and ignorant statement that can bring about maximum damage. I mentioned Andrew Young calling Ayatollah Khomeini a saint!, Ambassador Sullivan referring to Khomeini as 'Iran's Gandhi', Clinton and Armitage calling the theocracy in Iran a democracy and so on.

Now to top this extensive list of uninformed ignorant official statements, we have the latest winner for the trophy of cretinous comments. The winner is Debra Cagan for her remarks in a meeting with UK MPs on how much she hates ALL Iranians.

Make no mistake, she/he - however you want to refer to this steroids overdosed 'ADVISER!!' - was not referring to the Iranian regime, it was referring to the Iranian people, and ALL of us.

When it comes to alienating friends and allies and promoting enemies, no one does it as good as the US officials. If its the so called 'Homeland Security' illiterates at US airports, you may take it with a pinch of salt. After all pay peanuts and you get monkeys but I doubt very much if Debra Cagan gets paid peanuts, she just looks like a monkey.

Debra Cagan has to be sacked immediately if the US has any interest in keeping the most pro-Western population in the Middle East on her side. Only her quick dismissal can reassure the Iranian people that she was just one rotten apple, one amateur diplomat or whatever her official job title is, who got a job she did not deserve and therefore was consequently dealt with.

I wrote to the State Dept. Any body who has a brain should write to the State department too!

As the Iranian expression goes: A healthy mind exist in a healthy physique (Aghle salem dar badane salem). Debra Cagan looks so sick. I wouldn't even pee on her.

It seems their statements either support the ayatollahs or antagonise the Iranian people. If only for once the US realized the potential of the Iranian people as their best allies in the Middle East.

And you're actually convinced that writing the Defense Department's going to help somehow?

Dear Potkin,

Regarding your old post about the IRI agent working in the UK for PressTV, I suggest you get in touch with the group called European Foundation for Democracy. The director is a very nice Italian lady called Roberta Bonazzi (no relations to Banafsheh). Here is their web address. I think in any case it would be good for you to contact them since you are in the neighborhood, and I think you'll find them to be very solid and supportive people who get things done.

Check this link out:

Contact Roberta.

Best,
Amir

I think she is an evangelical rapturist...Most of them hate Iran because they associate it with Islam; not that it makes it right.

How do we know for sure that she said that?

I suppose if she means ALL the Iranians who have sat back and let these Mullah-Fascist do what ever they wanted to do in the last 28 years - I do not blame her - I too hate spineless cowards!
The point is that she said this in front of some spineless conservatives who had expected her to say the opposite and got upset with what she said...TOUGH.. GET OVER IT- she is not the only one with this attitude about Iranians.

Why do you think Amir Fahkravar does not have any IRI ties?
