We have an Iranian Freeper that needs our help.
We first met in the summer of 2003 when I was reporting on the protests inside of Iran (Iranian Alert Daily Threads). This young man kept us on FR informed by sending me on the spot reports at risk to his life about these protests, which I posted for him.
After the protests died down, he would send messages trying to educate Americans and those in the west about what the average Iranian thinks of America and what kind of support the people of Iran need to see a regime change take place in his country.
Well, this friend of ours was forced to go underground a month ago. The Iranian regime discovered that he had passed information to our government. As a result, for the past month the regime has been hunting him. He had to keep on the move every few hours. He was nearly captured several times. He struggled with depression, health and fear. It was a horrifying situation. I tried to encourage him to the best of my ability.
After many weeks he was finally able to get help and sneak out of the country.
But now he could use some help from the Freeper community.
We need to ensure that when he finally gets to a US embassy that they will help him, not merely refer him the UN refugee program.
We are asking any Freepers that have contacts in the administration or the state department to please contact us. We are seeking a way to help him get asylum.
He risked his life for us; the least we can do is help him.
If you have a ping list, please ping this thread to your ping list. There must be someone on FR that can help us.
Thanks in advance,
DoctorZin and our Iranian Freeper
PS Our Iranian Freeper still has family in Iran so we have to limit what we are saying on this thread. But I can give much more detailed information to contacts in our government. Thanks.
Just a suspicion, but I'd be willing to bet any senator or their staff willing and able to do something about this situation would be quietly working behind the scenes and would not necessarily be "out front" at this point. A surrogate is more likely. Don't lose hope that some people in high places are looking at it even as we speak.
Praying for the best possible outcome.

?We need you here in your native land.
PLEASE, PLEASE read my profile!!
I'm a slow reader and it took me twenty minutes.
You must be patient, after all, with us older, retired PhD's.
That being said, perhaps you should change your handle to something that wouldn't cause misunderstandings. Like American In America. :-)
NOW you're talkin!
I got out of PBC and have kept the name. No one tried to steal my Bush sign; no Democrats to annoy here.
I'm checking into some things friend.
You want some nukes? We deliver!
Well, if the US dosen't take him, he's welcome in Ireland - my might talk some sense into some of my people.
Oh no you don't! You want that gem in Ireland? We want'm. Maybe our politicians are asleep at the switch, but we WANT him!
Any updates/progress that you can report?
