Michael Doran isn't some conspiracy theorist.
As an expert on the geopolitics of the Middle East, he currently serves as a Senior Fellow at the conservative Hudson Institute. Previously, he was employed as a Senior Fellow at the moderate Brookings Institution.
Which makes his claim that he knows the Obama administration sent letters — plural — directly to Iranian Major General Qasem Soleimani all the more shocking. (Twitchy)
John Kerry still hasn’t figured out when to just walk away … sorry, slink away. We suppose his ego is more important to him than the country, otherwise, he wouldn’t have penned a ridiculous and whiny op-ed for the New York Times accusing Trump of ‘destroying’ what ‘we’ve’ built with Iran.
Because bowing to and funding terrorists was such a good thing for America to be associated with.
Michael Doran seems to have taken issue with John’s crap-piece and took it upon himself to be a whistleblower.
I urge the press and Congress to excavate that correspondence. I challenge former senior Obama officials — Susan Rice, John Brennan, John Kerry, Ash Carter and President Obama himself — to divulge all they know about the Soleimani messages and agree to have them declassified.— Mike (@Doranimated) January 10, 2020
And I also challenge those former officials to divulge all they know about — and to declassify — presidential correspondence w/ Khamenei & Rouhani. Now that the public has a better understanding of who Qassem Soleimani was, it has a right to understand the messages in context.— Mike (@Doranimated) January 10, 2020
During the George W. Bush administration, Doran sat on the National Security Council and oversaw public diplomacy at the Department of Defense.
It’s my patriotic duty to be a whistleblower. Feel free to thank me for my service. But please don’t reveal my identity. I must remain anonymous. I didn’t want to play this role, but history & destiny compelled me to stand & be counted. That, and my desire for a good laugh.— Mike (@Doranimated) January 10, 2020
His writings most recently appeared in an op-ed in the New York Times, heralding the demise of Qasem Soleimani.
