Voice of America: Carrying Water for the Mullahs?
A probe into the U.S.-funded VOA regarding its refusal to air negative material on Iran may have more evidence: VOA interviewed me, a former CIA agent, but won't air it or return my messages. (Update: Don't miss Roger L. Simon's interview with Kahlili on PJTV's Sharia & Jihad Watch.)

The following is a letter from Reza Kahlili to _______, who is conducting a probe into Voice of America.
Dear Sir or Madam:
My name is Reza Kahlili. I am a former CIA agent who worked inside the Revolutionary Guards of Iran.
I was invited by Voice of America’s Persian News Network to do an interview on Thursday, April 15. The interview lasted 45 minutes and consisted of a line of questioning designed more to condemn me and America’s interference in Iran’s internal affairs than anything else. During the interview, I remained steadfast in my opinion that the Islamic regime was unjust, and I recounted many of their crimes. I also revealed some of their secrets. I went to a great deal of trouble to appear at their studio in Los Angeles, covering part of my face with a mask and hiring a bodyguard.
To date, they have not aired any part of that interview and have refused to respond to my numerous requests as to whether they ever intend to air the interview.
I believe some at Voice of America might have had a different agenda than just interviewing me.
I am writing this letter after learning about a probe into Voice of America’s refusal to air any material that is considered unfriendly to the regime in Tehran. I have appeared on Fox, MSNBC, and many other media outlets in America stating my concerns over the current Iranian regime and what needs to be done. I have revealed some of their secrets and their activities on their nuclear bomb project.
I am very concerned that Voice of America, a U.S.-funded organization, has so far refused to air my views. They requested the interview!
The ongoing probe into Voice of America should include this inquiry. The U.S.-funded Voice of America should not be used as a propaganda tool of the Iranian regime. The people of Iran deserve to know the truth.
