But first, the Ayatollah's order.
Iran is taking several steps to help Syria’s beleaguered President Bashar Assad, assassinate opposition figures and attack Israeli and American interests worldwide, sources have confirmed.Some might remember an article from earlier this month that highlighted a federal judge's ruling that Iran and Hezbollah were behind 9/11. In that report, Hadi al-Ameri's connection to Iran was explored. It was relevant because he was welcomed into the Oval Office on December 12th of last year. Here is a screen shot of al-Ameri in the Oval Office as part of an Iraqi delegation. Yes, Iraqi delegation. Al-Ameri is Iraq's Transportation Minister and has obvious loyalties to the Ayatollah:
After the recent assassination of Iranian nuclear scientist Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan, deputy director of the first uranium enrichment facility at Natanz, Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, ordered retaliation.
He instructed Gen. Qasem Soleimani, the chief commander of the Quds Forces, to prepare the ground for terrorist attacks, first to retaliate against assassination and espionage within the Iranian nuclear program, and second, to go on the offensive to make the West understand that any military action against Iran will create much instability in the world.
As part of the research for that article, an Arabic document that had been translated drew a very distinct connection between Soleimani and al-Ameri. Here is an excerpt from that 2005 document:
Hadi Farhan Abdullah Al Ameri, known as "Abu Hassan Al Ameri", is currently leading Badr Organization and is one of the figures that are directly connected to the Iranian Al Quds Brigade.Fox News reported on al-Ameri's visit back in December. Here is the video report:
Al Ameri's journey started with the Shiite opposition, by the beginning of the 80s, when he left Iraq to Jordan, where he remained for a few days before moving to Syria. In Syria, he contacted the Supreme Council and he was transported to Iran. He spent all the following years there.
Al Ameri holds the Iranian nationality under the name of Hassan Ameri and his wife is Iranian. He usually visits Iran and meets with Qassem Sulaimani, the head of Al Quds Brigade, under the Iranian guard forces, on a regular basis.
While being in Iran, Al Ameri played a role in torturing the Iraqi prisoners, who were captured by Iran during the Iraqi-Iranian war. Prisoners who returned from there accuse him of being the cruelest against them. This role helped him to reach the status that he occupies in the eyes of the Iranians.
