Very busy Iranian. Very powerful Iranian. Commie. Con-Artist. Friend of Jarrett and Obozo.
Thanks for the background.
After reading your recent post I tied it to previous research and this thread.
Jarrett was the father-in-law of Valerie Jarrett, President Obama’s closest adviser.
Intrigue Surrounds a New Iranian American PAC
New York Sun, The (NY) - Monday, July 21, 2003
Author: ADAM DAIFALLAH Staff Reporter of the Sun
WASHINGTON - Senators Schumer, Kennedy, Carper, and two congressmen are listed as guests attending the kickoff of a new Iranian-American political action committee here tomorrow.
The Iranian American Political Action Committee is being established “to raise funds from the Iranian American community to support candidates for political office who have shown a commitment to our community’s domestic concerns and issues,” according to the group’s Web site.
The Iranian American PAC is led by Hassan Nemazee , a wealthy Iranian-American who has served on the board of the American Iranian Council, a group that advocates resuming ties between Iran and America.
Mr. Nemazee was nominated by President Clinton as ambassador to Argentina but withdrew before getting a confirmation vote in the Senate.
The PAC’s Web site says that Messrs. Kennedy, Schumer, and Carper, Rep. Steny Hoyer, a Democrat of Maryland, and Rep. Darrell Issa, a Republican of California, will be featured guests at a cocktail reception here tomorrow night at the Phoenix Park Hotel.
But a spokesman for Mr. Issa, Frederick Hill, said the event is “not on his schedule and never was on his schedule.” A spokesman from Mr. Carper’s office said that the event was on his schedule but that he wasn’t sure if he’d be attending. Calls to spokesmen for Mr. Kennedy on Friday and Mr. Schumer yesterday were not returned.

Britains Prince Harry talks with Dr. Jill Biden, left, and British Ambassador Sir Peter Westmacott, second from right, and his wife Susie Nemazee, right, during a reception at the British Ambassadors Residence in Washington, Monday, May 7, 2012, to meet members of the British and American teams who are taking part in the Warrior Games. The Warrior Games is an event hosted every year by the US Olympic Committee.
Another key Biden contributor is Hassan Nemazee, a New York money-manager who chaired Hillary Clintons finance committee, personally raising over $500,000 for her campaign. Nemazee also has served on the board of the American-Iranian Council, and more recently set up the Iranian-American Political Action Committee (IAPAC) along with a group of Silicon Valley billionaires, many of whom have close ties to the Iranian regime. Because of the controversy Nemazee and IAPAC members have generated within the Iranian-American community, the PACs Web site includes a bald disclaimer of any ties to Tehran. “IAPAC has no relationship with the Islamic Republic of Iran . . . and is not focused on U.S. policy towards Iran, establishing ties with or legitimizing the government of Iran,” it says. Obama’s choice of Joe Biden as his running mate “highlights the need to really investigate the web of Iranian influence in the United States,” Iranian-American political analyst Hassan Daioleslam told Newsmax. “What you have here is a group of people who have been working together through different groups and organizations for the past ten years” to promote the interests of the Iranian regime. “Its deeply troubling to have a vice-presidential candidate raise funds from people whose ties to the Iranian regime raise such serious questions,” Daioleslam said.
The Dems’ Corrupt Money Man

High-rolling fundraiser Hassan Nemazee personally spoke to Vice President Joe Biden about an ambassadorship, The Daily Beast has learned. Then the FBI busted him for running a Ponzi scheme. Lloyd Grove on the man behind the fraud.
When Barack Obama picked Joe Biden as his running mate, Nemazee was ecstatic, according to an associate, because now he would have a direct line to the White House. He boasted that Biden was among his closest friends, and finally he would obtain that ambassadorship hed always dreamed of. Indeed, he narrowly missed getting one in 1999, when Biden was his lead defender on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Republican senators worked to quash Nemazees nomination to be President Clintons ambassador to Argentina. A damaging article in Forbes magazine detailing Nemazees sharp business practices over the years didnt help his cause.
It is my great pleasure to introduce Senator Joe Biden. I take personal pleasure in doing so as Senator Biden is not only a man of unique accomplishments in the Senate but Im fortunate to call him a personal friend.
Thats how alleged Ponzi schemer Hassan Nemazee kicked off a March 2002 panel discussion on Iran in Washington, sponsored by the American Iranian Council. (Nemazees father is Iranian, according to Forbes.)
BIDEN: Hassan thank you very much. I want you to know that Hassan, I have taken advantage of his knowledge and taken advantage of his friendship to seek his advice on many, many issues, including Iran. As a matter of fact, had had I my way I would be referring to him as Ambassador Nemazee.
BTTT for an incredible thread, rich in information about Turtle Obama came to rest on the fencepost in the OVal Office.
Really fascinating connect-the-dots info.

Court Reveals Iranian Operatives In Charge Of Obamas Iran Policy Since 2009
westernjournalism.com/ ^ | 26SEP12 | By Doug Book
In 2009, Barack Obama turned over virtually all responsibility and authority for foreign policy negotiations with Iran to Trita Parsi and his National Iranian American Council (NIAC). Founded by Parsi in 2003, the Washington-based NIAC is a powerful lobbying group that is widely considered the de facto lobby for the Iranian Regime in America.
