Iranian Spy Outed, Ariane Tabatabai, But Keeps Her Top Position in Biden Administration


The Biden Administration is allowing a known Iranian spy to keep her top level position at the Pentagon. 

The story below is from Tabletmag (emphasis added):

The Biden administration’s now-suspended Iran envoy Robert Malley helped to fund, support, and direct an Iranian intelligence operation designed to influence the United States and allied governments, according to a trove of purloined Iranian government emails. The emails, which were reported on by veteran Wall Street Journal correspondent Jay Solomon, writing in Semafor, and by Iran International, the London-based émigré opposition outlet which is the most widely read independent news source inside Iran, were published last week after being extensively verified over a period of several months by the two outlets. They showed that Malley had helped to infiltrate an Iranian agent of influence named Ariane Tabatabai into some of the most sensitive positions in the U.S. government—first at the State Department and now the Pentagon, where she has been serving as chief of staff for the assistant secretary of defense for special operations, Christopher Maier.

On Thursday, Maier told a congressional committee that the Defense Department is “actively looking into whether all law and policy was properly followed in granting my chief of staff top secret special compartmented information.”

The emails, which were exchanged over a period of several years between Iranian regime diplomats and analysts, show that Tabatabai was part of a regime propaganda unit set up in 2014 by the Iranian Foreign Ministry. The Iran Experts Initiative (IEI) tasked operatives drawn from Iranian diaspora communities to promote Iranian interests during the clerical regime’s negotiations with the United States over its nuclear weapons program. Though several of the IEI operatives and others named in the emails have sought to portray themselves on social media as having engaged with the regime in their capacity as academic experts, or in order to promote better understanding between the United States and Iran, none has questioned the veracity of the emails.

The contents of the emails are damning, showing a group of Iranian American academics being recruited by the Iranian regime, meeting together in foreign countries to receive instructions from top regime officials, and pledging their personal loyalty to the regime. They also show how these operatives used their Iranian heritage and Western academic positions to influence U.S. policy toward Iran, first as outside “experts” and then from high-level U.S. government posts. Both inside and outside of government, the efforts of members of this circle were repeatedly supported and advanced by Malley, who served as the U.S. government’s chief interlocutor with Iran under both the Obama and the Biden administrations. Malley is also the former head of the International Crisis Group (ICG), which directly paid and credentialed several key members of the regime’s influence operation.

The New York Post reported on this shocking revelation as well.

An Iranian-born Pentagon official is to keep her top-level security clearance despite being named as part of a covert influence campaign run by Tehran — and being called a “spy” by Republicans.

Ariane Tabatabai appeared to be a willing recruit in the covert influence operation run by Tehran’s Foreign Ministry, according to a trove of leaked files revealed last month by Semafor.

She was previously a key aide to the suspended Iran envoy Robert Malley, whose secret ties to Tehran sparked congressional uproar.

Since early 2022, Tabatabai has been chief of staff to the Pentagon’s assistant secretory of defense for special operations and low-intensity conflict, Christopher P. Maier.

Malley was quietly placed on unpaid leave in June for his alleged mishandling of “protected material.”

Yesterday it was reported that the US may soon be at war with Iran, the top terrorist nation in the world that supports terrorist groups Hamas and Hezbollah.  Both surrogates are currently in the news for their attacks on Israel.  Hamas killed over 1,300 people in Israel, including babies, children, women, and hundreds of innocent civilians.  They kidnapped over 200 Israelis as well.

Tucker Carlson and others are sounding the alarm, that the Biden Administration may get us in a war in the Middle East with Iran.

At the same time that the Biden gang is contemplating going to war with Iran, there are known Iranian spies in the Biden Administration with access to the most highly classified information the country maintains.

The Biden Administration is not on America’s side on anything.

  1. I’m really enjoуing the design and layout of youг website.
    It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant
    fοr me to come heгe and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your thеme?

    Outstanding work!

  2. What are we to think of republicans on the senate intel committee who are not voicing strong concerns over this:

    Cotton, Cornyn, Collins, Rubio, …

    I recall that committee jumped into 2 investigations of Trump 2017-2021, with no evidence. They joined into the framing of Trump. They found nothing, but kept extending those investigations.

    So I can wonder, are these people also functioning as agents?
