Little known about Rouhani is the fact that he was a member of the Committee for Special Operations (Omure Vijeh Committee), which authorized extralegal terrorist attacks and assassinations, including the suicide truck bombing of Khobar Towers in Saudia Arabia that kill 19 Americans and injured nearly 400 others.Iranian President Hassan Rouhani is often mischaracterized in the West as a moderate and force for change. While stylistically he may appear reasonable and forthcoming, he's a consummate insider who has been at the pinnacle of power most of his life, supporting extremist fundamentalist policies.

For 17 years Rouhani has been a member of Iran's Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), the country's top decision-making panel that overseedefense and national security issues.

Rouhani was twice National Security Adviser to the President; Chief Nuclear Negotiator; Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Services; member of the Supreme Defense Council; Commander of the Air Defense Force; member of the Council of Experts; and five times an elected member of the Majlis, where he served as head of the Defense Committee.

Less well known is Rouhini's key role in supporting terrorism; his support for chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons; how he duped the West when he was Iran's top nuclear negotiator; his early years as a fundamentalist activist and protege of Ayatollah Khomeini; and his hardline opposition to human rights, freedom, and democracy.

These issues and others are discussed on this website to provide a realistic appraisal of Rouhani and his true ambitions as President of Iran.
