President Barack Obama’s appointees have airbrushed Iran out of the terror section of the 2015 annual report on national security threats, just as he tries to negotiate a nuclear weapons deal with Iran’s theocratic leaders.
The 2015 “Worldwide Threat Assessment of the U.S. Intelligence Community” excludes Iran and its network of jihadi groups who are motivated by Islam’s Shia sect, from the report’s terror section.
Instead, the assessment focuses entirely jihadis motivated by the Sunni sect of Islam, including those in al-Qaida and ISIS, sometimes known as the Islamic State.
“Sunni violent extremists are gaining momentum and the number of Sunni violent extremist groups, members, and safe havens is greater than at any other point in history,” the report admits.
That’s a big shift from 2014, when Iran’s network of jihadis — chiefly, the Hezbollah army in Lebanon — got their own subsection.
“Iran and Hizballah – Outside of the Syrian theater, Iran and Lebanese Hizballah continue to directly threaten the interests of US allies. Hizballah has increased its global terrorist activity in recent years to a level that we have not seen since the 1990s,” said the 2014 report.
Non-government experts say Iran has funded and directed many terror attacks, including hundreds of attacks on U.S. troops in Iraq, on Jews in Israel and even a huge bomb against a Jewish site in Argentina.
During 2014, Iran and Hezbollah stepped up their roles in the Syrian and Iraqi wars, where they’re fighting the Syria-based Sunni jihad groups.

And that calls for a celebration via Michelle O Just Reached Out To Islamic Iran With A Big White House Party
In keeping with President Obama’s public praise for Islam and the supposedly noteworthy threads of Muslim Americans woven through the fabric of the nation’s history, the first lady suggested to the Nowruz gathering something that could be considered rather curious…if not absolutely stunning.
Mrs. Obama said that a celebration like the one marking the Iranian New Year is part of the “traditions that make us who we are as a country.”
In other words, it certainly sounds as though Michelle Obama wants us to believe that Nowruz is much like Thanksgiving or the Fourth of July or Presidents’ Day.
By clicking on the video above, you can watch Mrs. Obama’s address to the Nowruz gathering at the White House — a short speech that some might consider history-warping.
John Kerry’s daughter married an Iranian with extensive ties to Iran – could that be why Kerry has been so aggressive in allowing Iran to get nukes?
