The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action with Iran, democracy, human rights, the rule of law, and the deteriorating situation in neighboring Syria and Iraq were discussed. The events, which were carried live in the U.S. by Fox News and The Washington Times, were also broadcast inside Iran by Voice of America and featured prominently in 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; and former National Security Advisor to President George W.

SHEEHAN | Has the Iran Lobby Set its Sights on the Trump Administration? | Townhall | Op-Ed | 30 November 2016

On November 30, 2016, Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan – Associate Professor of Public and International Affairs – challenged claims made by former U.S. Coordinator for Counterterrorism at the Department of State, Ambassador Daniel Benjamin, and Washington Post columnist, Mr. Josh Rogin, against senior officials under consideration for posts in the Trump White House:

Excerpts via @TownHallcom:

…If allegations levied by Benjamin or Rogin were substantiated by actual evidence, their claims might be credible. They are not. Instead the articles traffic in innuendo that is easily dismissed.

How do I know?

I am the author of three empirical, peer-reviewed journal articles that examine matters involving the exiled Iranian resistance group Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK), also known as People’s Mujahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI). I also penned the foreword to an independent 2013 study undertaken by Ambassador Lincoln P. Bloomfield Jr. that addressed the misinformation campaign directed at Western government policies toward the Iranian opposition group. Bloomfield, a former defense and foreign policy official who served three presidents over five administrations in the Pentagon, White House, and State Department, produced the scholarly history of the MEK to challenge conventional wisdom within the Department of State and to prompt fresh policy thinking…

…There is an urgent need for Washington to undertake a thorough counterintelligence investigation of Iran’s influence campaign in the U.S.

After appearing at Townhall, the commentary was republished as the featured post at the Foreign Policy Association and has been shared thousands of times in less than a week.

Dr. Ivan Sascha Sheehan is the Director of the graduate programs in Negotiations & Conflict Management and Global Affairs & Human Securityin the College of Public Affairs at the University of Baltimore.
