      Skim milk masquerades as creme.

      Feltman said "NGOs IN Iran"

      I can tell you the names of some very troublesome NGOs that operate within and across Iranian borders, that are peopled by folks such as Joshua Muravchik, Ken Timmerman, and other neocons.  

      But Feltman did not name any NGOs.

      If a google search can uncover NGOs such as those like Muravchik's that get US gov funds, why was Feltman loathe to name them?

      Are the NGOs Feltman declined to name working in concert with Prince Pahlavi?  With CIA?  With Rafsanjani?  Who knows?  Feltman's testimony was disclosure that disclosed nothing.  Do taxpayers have a right to know where their money is going?

        i'm not digging through your mess to find your source for Feltman's comment when you cannot be bothered to properly source it yourself in this diary.

        there is no reason not to give us examples of NGOs, if you have them, that support your claim of NGO/US collusion and interference in Iran.

        very convenient to answer the gaps in your argument as proof as your thesis.

        not terribly convincing however.
