    She's made an enemy of the nation of her birth, which nurtured her into the woman she is. In the end, we all reap what we sow and I'm sure she knows more than most what the U.S. is capable of. On a side note, check out the shameless dude at 3:01 in uniform, walking and talking on his cellphone in front of a camera outside of the Pentagon. Unfuck yourself.

    Maybe she converted to Islam in her heart, she was not Iranian-American, She was a white American who learned Farsi Language in the US Army ! After she learned Farsi, she changed her mission and turned to be a spy officer for Iran ! I met her many years ago

    This Witt woman is a bitter and stupid person. First of all, it is unlikely she will rise to any power in Iran. Secondly, um once Iran realizes she is of no real use in terms of current US top strategies (She defected in 2013 btw), she will be discarded and live out the rest of her miserable life under Sharia or worse!
