(Worthy News) - The Trump administration on Tuesday made a direct appeal to the Iranian people to reject what it called the “corrupt religious mafia” running their country, rolling out a targeted social media campaign to paint the government in Tehran as an oppressive force more focused on exporting violence and funding terrorism than caring for its own population.
In a professional-quality video produced by the State Department and posted in Farsi to Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and other platforms, top administration officials used the long-shuttered Iranian Embassy in Washington as a backdrop to excoriate Iran’s revolutionary ideology and push for radical change.
High-level sources inside the administration tell The Washington Times that they see a major opportunity to drive a wedge between the leadership in Tehran and its citizens by hammering home Iran’s working relationship with al Qaeda, its funding of Hamas and Hezbollah, and its willingness to offer sanctuary to deadly terrorists.

Special Rep. Brian Hook: The U.S. has taken good care of #Iran’s embassy in Washington, hoping that one day we can return the keys back to an Iranian government that cares more about its people and less about its destructive revolutionary ideology.
