"The U.S. government has expelled two Iranian security guards at Iran's U.N. Mission, citing activities "incompatible with their stated duties," a
U.S. official said Tuesday"
"The Iranians were caught on three occasions taking photos of nfrastructure, transport systems and New York City landmarks.."
Now, I fully realize that in the wake of 9/11 our national security is of the utmost importance and on the one hand, I am glad such stringent
percautions are being taken. However, with the limited info in this article it would appear that these were Iranian citizens, visitors to our
country. For all we know this was their first trip to the US. If so, just imagine yourself being a visitor from Iran in New York City. Woudln't
you take pictures to bring home and show the family? If you were from a country that didn't have a "trasport system" like that in NY would you
take a picture of it? I took a picture of the Eurorail when I was in Europe, in fact, I took a picture in the subway in Milan also. And what are
infastructures? That doens't tell us much, it could have been the very building they were meeting in for all we know. And landmarks - well of
course a visitor to NY would take pictures of landmarks. I have photos of the Colleseum, the Vatican, Mt. Etna, the Louver, the Eifel tower, the
Sterling Castle, Brahm Stoker's home, come on, that's what we do when we visit new lands.
What if this is just one snipet in a sting of mis-info our government controlled media has been feeding us to begin to lay the groundwork to justify
an attack on Iran. Afterall, our troops are already right next door, may as well stay the course.
Just playing devils advocate - don't hang me!
