Iranian & US regimes arrest video posters

The AFP reported:
[Iranian] Police said on Tuesday they had arrested six Iranians suspected of posting a version of US singer Pharrell Williams's hit song "Happy" - [a song about feeling high from a state of happiness] - on the Internet.

The clip shows three men and three unveiled women singing and dancing to the tune in the streets and on Tehran rooftops.

"After a vulgar clip which hurt public chastity was released in cyberspace, police decided to identify those involved in making that clip," Tehran police chief Hossein Sajedinia was quoted as saying...

"Following a series of intelligence and police operations and after coordinating with the judiciary, all the suspects were identified and arrested."

[An Iranian news agency] said the detainees were three men and three women and that they "confessed to their criminal acts".
In a similar occurrence, although it involves a video of a less benign nature, the producer, and poster, of an anti-Islamic YouTube video, which President Obama falsely, and cunningly, blamed for the attacks on the US consulate in Benghazi that left four Americans dead, was arrested on September 27, 2012.

Prosecutors claimed rather disingenuously that they were charging the video producer with violating terms of a probation from a 2010 conviction, however, they then added, begrudgingly, that some of the violations included making false statements regarding his role in the film. But sadly, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to conclude why the video filmmaker was suddenly arrested: He was the phony talking point that President Obama desperately latched on to; he was the scapegoat, he was Obama's ticket to victory in the 2012 Presidential election.

Ultimately, Obama always gets what he wants: He falsely blamed the filmmaker for the attacks, propagated the false narrative that the attacks were a spontaneous reaction to the video - and not pre-planned terrorist attacks - the filmmaker was subsequently arrested - and Obama was able to exonerate himself from any blame in the crucial weeks leading up to the November 2012 Presidential election.

And while it's true that the aforementioned YouTube video is not as benign as the Pharrell Williams "Happy" song video, nevertheless the moral of the story is clear: The Iranian regime and the Obama administration will take whatever actions are necessary to advance their cause, their lies, and their false narratives.

Sickening. Ughh........
