Defecting Iranian Cameraman Brings CIA Priceless Film of Nuclear Sites
Virtual Jerusalem ^ | 10/5/2012

Posted on 10/05/2012 10:25:50 AM PDT by Former Fetus

Debkafile reveals one of the CIA's most dramatic scoops in many years, and epic disaster for Iran.

Our most exclusive Iranian and intelligence sources disclose that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's personal cameraman, Hassan Golkhanban, who defected from his UN entourage in New York on Oct. 1, brought with him an intelligence treasure trove of up-to-date photographs and videos of top Iranian leaders visiting their most sensitive and secret nuclear and missile sites.

The cameraman, who is in his 40s, is staying at an undisclosed address, presumably a CIA safe house under close guard.

I know some people here don't think much of debkafile, but I sure hope this is true. On the other hand, I would hate to defect from Iran with sensitive information and have to put my life in Obama's hands! I'll never forget Bill Clinton and Elian Gonzalez.

If true, I hope that this only confirms what the CIA already knows.

I wonder how long before someone in this administration leaks his previously undisclosed location.

I hope this ‘safe house’ is better protected than the Benghazi ‘safe house’.
Hopefully they will share the information and pictures with Isreal.

No worry. IF this is true it is more of Obama’s October Surprise. When Mossad says “YAAAAA” I’ll believe it.

You mean like the Navy Seals team that took out OBL?

I fully expect Obama to announce his new name and address. And where he likes to eat out, when he goes for walks, etc

Film?

What about the digital age?

Just a generic reference to information?

Yes, “film” is a generic term akin to “video”.
I have to make a conscious effort to not use it when referring to non-photochemical moving images.

Of course not. I’m sure you see right thru them joos.

The foreign affairs analytical capacity of FR never fails to dazzle.

“I’m sure you see right thru them joos.”

What the heck are you talking about?
I deeply resent your assertion that I am somehow anti-semitic for questioning the veracity of Debka!

Always question and look for more than one source, I’ve been fooled more than once.

Debka has its ups and downs like any other analyst outfit.

But the knee-jerk condemnation of Debka has over the years become pretty much a signature issue for FR.

“But the knee-jerk condemnation of Debka has over the years become pretty much a signature issue for FR.”

I don’t believe I had a “knee-jerk” reaction. I simply did a Google search and the only source (at the time) was Debka. The prudent thing to do is wait for more independent reports.
I have a similar reaction to just about any “too good to be true” reports or stories that Drudge won’t touch. Alex Jones is a good example that I take with a grain of salt.
“Out of the mouths of two or more witnesses” is a good standard.

True enough. Sorry about the knee-jerk thing.

Sometimes my knees jerk.

It looked more like a twitch than a jerk, a knee twitch.
