More trouble coming from Iran: two guards at the Iranian UN mission in New York have been sent out of the country. Question: how much more jihad activity is going on under cover of diplomatic immunity? From CNN, :
The two were seen taking still photos and video of New York City subways, buses and tunnels, and were expelled last weekend for conduct inconsistent with their official duties, the State Department said.
But an Iranian official said: “Like anybody who visits New York, they visit tourist sites — sightseeing and videotaping themselves, looking at the Metropolitan Museum [of Art], places like that.”
Adam Ereli, deputy spokesman at the State Department, said the guards were expelled after being observed by the FBI “videotaping various locations from New York deemed to be sensitive.”
Ereli called the activity a “recurring problem, as this was the third time the United States has required the departure of Iranian security guards for videotaping and photographing landmarks in New York.
“In the case of the Iranian mission to the United Nations, it represented a unique pattern that raised concerns of law enforcement,” he said.
