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.
what twitter sourcing?
Cool, maybe this is the start of something.
Bump for later.
Fars get in here
Leaving a sinking ship?
I don’t read norwegian but I do occasionally bash norwegians just because its safe to do so.
Bunch’a herring shuckers. ;~)
Did we get him in trade for John Kerry?
Can’t find the one that mention the name of the paper, but getting a lot of ones like this:
orway tv’s news announced on Tuesday @ 7 that Iran’s ambassador (Mr. Heydari) has resigned & is seeking asylum.
Not Mullah Sven!?
Sure sounds like it.
OK - I monitor a good two dozen so called breaking news media sources on twitter - no sign so far of this event ?
Monk get on ping 9
If they ever do remake of Dr Strangelove I think we got part for Crazy nut job
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.
Just saw this. Put out a couple of calls. Waiting for responses, if any.
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.
Something’s afoot. This ambassador has some inside dope.
"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!"
This thread has had 641 views already.
You’ve got the attention of a lot of people.
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... :-)
Just found this tweet:
Norway NRK reported tonight:Mohammed Reza Heydari left his post at iran embassy due to missthreatment of Iranina during Ashura
NRK...Are those legit Norwegian Call TV letters?
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.
Looks like Barry is cozying up to those Jew-hating sobs right when they’re losing their grip on power.
Not surprising. He embodies an inversion of all that is true, productive and virtuous. An almost perfect negative.
Yup It’s legit...

I hope he brought info!
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.
Yesterday’s article tells about the Ambassador’s opposition to the Iranian oppression of its people:
(And what is that weird advertisemnet at the bottom of the webpage?)
Yes NRK is the Norwegian national broadcaster.
Unless someone is pretending to be them, I would take the news as legit.
Ain’t it just par for the course for Barry? Always showing up with flowers after the train has left the station!
Obama supports Muslim dictators and terrorist sympathizers!!!
Correct story confirmatin from Norway contact:
Not the ambassador but the Consul General has resigned.

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.
All the stories mention Ambassador Heydari.
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.
Anyone can follow along here:
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...
Rather than resign, I’d like to see him keep the embassy and establish an Iranian regime in exile with other opposition members.
get as much info as possible and then offer him a palatial home in downtown detroit as a reward....something in the 7500-8000 dollar range.
That is probably the next step.
