"It was horrific, medieval and barbarous..."
A former Iranian provincial governor and current central government advisor is warning that any American attack on Syria will result in the kidnapping and torture of American on a global scale as well as the abduction and sexual assault on the youngest of the Obama daughters, as reported by Reza Kahlili of the right-of-center news portal The Daily Caller on Sept. 5, 2013.
Alireza Forghani, the former governor of southern Iran’s Kish Province and currently cited as an "analyst and strategy specialist" for the Islamic Republic's Supreme Leader Ali Hosseini Khamenei, has threatened U.S. officials and their families world-wide as well as Sasha Obama if the American Chief Executive follows through on his vow to launch an attack on the forces of Syrian President Bashir al-Assad.
Penned in both Farsi (the native language in Iran) as well as broken English, Forghani posted on-line:
Hopefully Obama will be pigheaded enough to attack Syria, and then we will see the … loss of U.S. interests [through terrorist attacks].
In just 21 hours [after the attack on Syria], a family member of every U.S. minister [department secretary], U.S. ambassadors, U.S. military commanders around the world will be abducted.
And then 18 hours later, videos of their amputation will be spread [around the world].
In addition, Forghani warned (self-censored):
We should remind Obama that if you are a bastard, there are other bas***ds all around the world who can assault Sasha.
Obama will attack Syria and then you’ll go to hell, and the world’s public opinion will accept that you deserve to be attacked and assaulted, so PLEASE attack.
According to Kahlili, the Farsi version of the text "clearly stated that Sasha will be raped by someone who has been able to get close to the Obama family."
Forghani is also reportedly closely aligned with Mehdi Taeb, the chief of the hard-line Islamist think tank The Ammar Strategic Base which is widely believed to be the command and control center for Iran's so-called "soft war" in Syria.
The Iranians have made good their threats of kidnapping and torture of Americans in the past.
William Buckley, the CIA station chief who was abducted in Beirut in 1984 and later killed by Hezbollah on Iran’s order, was tortured to death by his captors.
In a video of the torture, former CIA Director William Casey later described what he saw in the video:
They had done more than ruin his body.
His eyes made it clear his mind had been played with.
It was horrific, medieval and barbarous.
