BREAKING: Iran Ambassador to Norway resigned/seeking asylum!
Twitter | Tues, January 5, 2010 | ?

Posted on 01/05/2010 4:23:18 PM PST by DGHoodini

It's being tweeted that the Iranian Amb to Norway has resigned and is seeking asylum in Oslo. So far I have not seen it in the MSM. It's beeing tweeted that it is been published in a Norwegian paper. Anyone read the language?

Things must be gettin real bad if Ambassadors are cutting and running, as one person posted.

Expect Dear Leader to bring him here to the US.

THEN they will have the DOJ or DOD arrest and imprison him.

THEN they will give him to the Iranians to “obtain good will”.

No concessions from the Iranians will be assured in return, and in fact they will not even allude to such a possibility. They will not interrogate him or ask him any questions, such as what he knows about Iran’s nuclear programs. They will blame it on the Bush administration that people like this ambassador could ever get the idea that leaving Iran would ever be a moral thing to do.

He will be stabbed in the back.

I wish I was being sarcastic instead of outlining what I believe to be a realistic scenario with this bunch.

Iranian Amb to Norway has resigned and is seeking asylum in Oslo.

Phew! I thought he was going to ask for asylum in the U.S. I'd be so ashamed when Sec. Clinton would deny his request and send him back to Iran.

Great psy-ops play if it isn't true:

"and today the Iranian ambassador to Norway resigned and is seeking asylum ..."

"no, I didn't! who said that??? what is going on here?"

"when asked for comment, an Iranian spokesperson mentioned death by traditional practice ..."

"noooooo! now I can't go back there! Someone get me the Norwegians on the phone; we're staying!"

Ummm..., I wonder about all the Internet sourcing sometimes... I mean some of it may be as good as overhearing a conversation in a bar... LOL...

But, not saying it’s not true... just like many things overheard in a bar may be true, too — but I would not “source it” that way in some college paper I was writing... :-)

Sure hope it’s not disinformation! But if NRK are legit call letters for a Norwegian TV station, it will be easy enough to check out how legit the tweets are.

Not surprising. He embodies an inversion of all that is true, productive and virtuous. An almost perfect negative.

Don’t know the language , so as far as I can tell, this could just be another story about the protests, or it could be about the Amb resigning:

Side info: the late-Shah’s former ambassador to Norway is an activist in that country and could well have influenced matters.

Also remember the take over of the Norwegian Embassy by anti-regime demonstrators a few months ago, who then hoisted up the real Lion & Sun national flag (not the one with Allah in the middle). Although the embassy staff have diplomatic immunity and carry sidearms, none of them dared draw a weapon.

The story at one time stated it was an event in Sweden but if memory serves me right, it was Norway.

Meanwhile a USA based Persian TV has also heard this and adds (without confirmation) that there is a possible second amabassador who has defected.

Yes NRK is the Norwegian national broadcaster.

Unless someone is pretending to be them, I would take the news as legit.

Obama is on the side of the current regime, and will do NOTHING to help the freedom fighters who are stepping up and confronting them.

Obama supports Muslim dictators and terrorist sympathizers!!!

You know...somehow I get the feeling that Ahmedinnerjacket will not be alive for very much longer........

He doesn't want to live. He wants to die a martyr destroying Israel in Armageddon with (apparently) a nuclear attack.

No joke. He believes the 12th Imam will come after Armageddon. He speaks of it often.

But if you know of some way to hurry the process without the Armageddon part then please do it.

I’m praying for the Iranian people, that they might throw off their oppressors, and establish a democracy.

In spite of the evil President of the United States of America, who does not care one iota for them.

If he does have a nuke, this may be his last chance to launch it at Israel.

It may also be why there are defections within.

They’ve discovered that Iran has a nuke ready to launch!

Just a thought...
