Latest Anti-Iran Ad Exposes Hypocrisy Of Deal's Opponents

Ahmad Batebi tells a tale of torture and broken promises to convince Americans not to support the deal with Iran. It will backfire.

This ad ran during The Rachel Maddow Show last night. It features Ahmad Batebi, an Iranian photojournalist who was tortured by fundamental Islamists in power in Iran during the last decade.

The sheer hypocrisy of this ad is stunning. Batebi says "Iran signed a treaty agreeing not to torture," but then they tortured him anyway.

I have news for Batebi. The United States signed that treaty too, and it didn't stop us from torturing prisoners during the Cheney-Bush administration. So please, tell me more about how untrustworthy Iran is?

CNFI is the organization which just promoted Joe Lieberman to be its President after the current President left because he agrees with the deal. Here's the hit parade of idiots who are currently on their billionaires' payroll to try and kill the deal:

The Advisory Board of CNFI includes former Senators Evan Bayh (D-IN), Mark Begich (D-AK), Mary Landrieu (D-LA) and Joseph Lieberman (D-CT), as well as former Congressman Gary Ackerman (D-NY), Dennis Cardoza (D-CA), Peter Deutsch (D-FL) and former Congresswoman Shelley Berkley (D-NV). CNFI is supported by AIPAC, and other organizations and individuals concerned about the proposed Iran deal.
