To the Honorable President of the United States of America

Dear Mr. George W. Bush


Subject: Hospitality of an Iranian Governmental Terrorism’ Official in Washington D. C, the Capital City of the United States of America?!



According to “the Country Reports on Terrorism 2004” released in April 2005, Publication 11248, Printed in Multi-Media Services by the honorable US Department of State Office of the Coordinator for Counter Terrorism which includes 136 pages; on the subject of “States Sponsors of Terrorism Overview” on page 88, column 2, from line 6 to line 22, the report states:


Iran remained the most active state sponsor of terrorism in 2004. Its Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and Ministry of Intelligence and Security were involved in the planning and support of terrorist acts and continued to exhort a variety of groups to use terrorism in pursuit of their goals. Iran continued to be unwilling to bring to justice senior al-Qa’ida members it detained in 2003. Iran has refused to identify publicly these senior members in its custody on “security grounds.” Iran has also resisted numerous calls to transfer custody of its al-Qa’ida detainees to their countries of origin or third countries for interrogation and/ or trial. Iranian judiciary officials claimed to have tried and convicted some Iranian supporters of al-Qa’ida during 2004, but refused to provide details. Iran also continued to fail to control the activities of some al Qa’ida members who fled to Iran following the fall of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan.”


Dear President


Studies show that international public opinion, including Americans and Iranians, especially the families of 9/11 victims are wondering how they can interpret the present contradictions between your words about the “War on Terror” and “The Country Report of the “U. S. Department of State” on the one hand, and hospitality given to terrorists in Washington D. C, by the institutes related to U. S. Government!?


According to news released by “The Washington Institute” on March 30, 2005 Mr. Mohsen Sazegara Joins the Washington Institute as a Visiting Fellow. (The news released by Washington institute is attached at the end).


Based on information released by the Washington Institute, Mr. Mohsen Sazgara is the founder of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps; he also has served as Vice minister of Planning and Budget.


Which means that he has served as a founder of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps that, according to the report by the U. S. Department, was involved in the planning and support of terrorist acts and continued to exhort a variety of groups to use terrorism in pursuit of their goals; in addition, he was planning the budget of terrorist activities and plots of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as Vice minister of Planning and Budget.


Although the Washington Institute has tried to introduce Mr. Mohsen Sazgara as an Iranian Dissident political Activist to public opinion especially to Americans, but Iranian people know him as a murderer of their loved ones.

In addition to their global crimes, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps is responsible for: the torture and execution of 120,000 Iranian freedom fighters, the massacre of 30,000 Iranian political prisoners in 1988 summer; punishment of Iranian Azeri people; and the bombing and massacre of thousands of Iranian Kurds by Napalm during the past 26 years.


Dear President


Researches show and prove that the credibility of U. S. government about the war on terror is shattered on Iranians’ people public opinion because of the hospitality for one of their murderers by an institute associated with the U. S. Government at Washington D. C, the capital city of the United States of America, while this institute tries to misrepresent all truths, and introduces a murderer of Iranian people as a dissident political activist.


The question is, with attention to shameful activity of this institute why the public should trust to claims of “The War on Terror”?



But, the most important question for Iranian’ public opinion is:


Dose the hospitality of a murderer of Iranian people have the definition of supporting the Iranian people’ struggle to achieve their liberty and democracy?


Hospitality of a terrorist in the capital city of the United States of America dose not have the definition of war on terror, so what it dose mean?


As I am writing for you based on news by the U. S. TV channels, there are ongoing exercises by firefighters and other department in different places of America to make sure that United States of America is ready for anything could happened by terrorists.


Do you think that the brave heart people of these operations know that as they are getting ready to protect their community against terrorists’ attacks, the Washington institute is serving the founder of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps?


It is very interesting that as the U. S. intelligence services’ agents are looking for the members of global terrorist network, the founder of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps is appreciated by an American institute, while according to the report by the U. S. Department of States the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps “involved in the planning and support of terrorist acts and continued to exhort a variety of groups to use terrorism in pursuit of their goals”!



Iranian people know about the ongoing negotiations for handing the Iranian political activists over to the Iranian regime.



The honorable U. S. policy makers and politicians should pay special attention to the fact that the hospitality for/ and the ties with the Iranian government’ terrorists and the murderers of Iranian people will completely undermine any possibility of benefits for the U. S. government on Iranian people’ public opinion.


Here; after briefly introduction of the writer, there is the news released by Washington institute.


God bless you

Best regards,

Iranian Dissident and Political Activist Mohsen Sazegara Joins the Washington Institute as a Visiting Fellow


Release Date: March 30, 2005


WASHINGTON—Mohsen Sazegara joined The Washington Institute for Near East Policy today for a two-month term as a visiting fellow.


In the late 1970s, as an undergraduate at Sharif University of Technology in Iran and Illinois Institute of Technology, Mr. Sazegara was a leader in the Iranian student movement against the shah. During the 1979 revolution, he returned with Ayatollah Khomeini to Iran, where he served as a founder of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps and as managing director of the National Radio of Iran (1979-1981). During the 1980s, he served as political deputy in the prime minister's office, deputy minister of heavy industries, chairman of the Industrial Development and Renovation Organization of Iran, and vice minister of planning and budget.


Mr. Sazegara became disillusioned with the revolutionary government and left it in 1989. He later served as publisher of several reformist newspapers closed by regime hardliners, including Jamee, Toos, and Golestan-e-Iran. He was also managing director of Iran's press cooperative company, whose membership included more than 450 Iranian journal and newspaper publishers. He earned his master's degree in history at Iran's Shahid Beheshti University, and in 1996 completed his doctoral thesis at the University of London on religious intellectuals and the Islamic revolution.


When his candidacy for president was rejected by the Guardian Council in 2001, he initiated a campaign for a referendum on replacing the Iranian constitution. Mr. Sazegara was arrested by the Ministry of Intelligence in 2003. While in jail, he went on two lengthy hunger strikes that caused deterioration in his health; he was permitted to go to London for medical treatment in 2004. Four months ago, Mr. Sazegara helped launch an internet petition for a referendum on the Iranian constitution that has so far garnered the support of more than 35,000 signatories as well as 300 political and cultural activists in Iran and abroad.


While at The Washington Institute, Mr. Sazegara will focus on the prospects for political change in Iran and the role of the international community in the movement for democracy in Iran
