In June 2018, Dr. Sheehan traveled to Paris as part of a research delegation examining the Iranian opposition as protests swept over Iran. Sheehan’s policy-oriented writing, scholarship, and media appearances – as well as analyses provided to policymakers in the U.S. Congress – have examined matters related to regime change in Iran. On June 29, 2018, Sheehan participated in radio, print, and television media in Paris, including interviews with talk show host Mike Siegel (syndicated by Genesis Communications Network), Al Arabiya, Iran National Television, and the National Council of Resistance of Iran. Dr. Sheehan also spoke, on background, for reporting carried out by POLITICO.

The Paris conference, carried live in the U.S. by Fox News and The Washington Times, was also broadcast inside Iran by Voice of America and featured prominently in many Arab newspapers. Dignitaries in attendance included former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Newt Gingrich; former FBI Director Louis Freeh, former Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge; former U.S. Attorney General Judge Michael Mukasey; former National Security Advisor to President George W. Bush, Frances Townsend, and many others.

Breaking news following the event indicated that the rally had been targeted by agents of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) in a terror plot thwarted by authorities in Belgium, France, Germany, and Austria who worked together to foil the bombing. Five individuals, including an Iranian diplomat, who was reportedly working as an MOIS Station Chief in Vienna, were arrested after being trapped with explosives and a detonator. The plot was immediately reported on by The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Reuters, and NBC and addressed by senior U.S. State Department officials.

In summer 2018, Dr. Sheehan was also invited to join select, senior former U.S. officials – including Speaker Newt Gingrich, FBI Director Louis Freeh, and Attorney General Michael Mukasey – as a signatory to an open letter published in the The New York Times in support of Iranian protesters promoting democracy in Iran. Sheehan was also invited to join a group of select, distinguished U.S. officials as a signatory to an official letter sent to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on the foiled terror plot launched by the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence (MOIS) that targeted the rally for democracy in Iran held in Paris.
