EXCLUSIVE: Obama Appointed Islamic Society Official To Approve Russian Uranium Sale and Gulftainer Port Deal

The Obama administration placed Aimen Nabi Mir, former two-time president of the youth wing of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), into the top advisory position to the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), a national security post at the Treasury Department.

Aimen Mir was the CFIUS Staff Chairperson from 2009 until 2014. During that time, Aimen Mir played a key role in the CFIUS panel’s decision to approve the sale of Uranium One to Russia’s Rosatom. Mir also played a key role in the Treasury Department’s refusal to investigate the UAE’s Gulftainer 35-year cargo container terminal lease at Port Canaveral, a critical military infrastructure facility for U.S. naval and space operations. Both decisions severely damaged United States national security.

Aimen Mir helped set the table for Vladimir Putin to seize control of over 20 percent of U.S. uranium and was part of the decision that awarded control of Port Canaveral’s cargo container terminal to Saddam Hussein’s rogue nuclear weapons scientist and designated Iraq War enemy combatant, Dr. Jafar Dhia Jafar. Dr. Jafar’s brother and business partner, Gulftainer co-owner Hamid Jafar, was under investigation by the Treasury Department and four congressional committees for his “Oil For Superweapons” scheme in concert with Saddam Hussein.

For starters, Aimen Mir’s ISNA connections are troubling. ISNA is one of the largest Muslim Brotherhood front groups in the U.S. and was named by the Department of Justice as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 2008 Holy Land Foundation HAMAS terror funding trial.

Further, Aimen Mir is the son of Kashmir-born physician Dr. Ghulam Nabi Mir, an ISNA Founders Committee member. Dr. Mir is also the president of the World Kashmir Awareness Forum (WKAF), an Islamic platform Dr. Mir uses to aggressively advocate for Kashmir’s secession from India in order to join Pakistan. WKAF’s Secretary General “Dr.” Syed Ghulam Nabi Fai, is a convicted felon, also from Kashmir, who served as a Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence Directorate (ISI) operativein side the United States.

Fai was arrested by the FBI in 2011 for covertly operating as an unregistered foreign agent while receiving $3.5 million dollars in wire transfers from the ISI. Fai used some of that money to fund an elaborate lobbying operation pushing Kashmiri “independence” on unsuspecting U.S. officials who remained seemingly unaware that Pakistan was running the operation. In 2013, Fai was granted early release from U.S. federal prison by the Justice Department.

Like his father’s ISI partner Fai, Aimen Mir appears to have been running his own operation at CFIUS.

Aimen Mir was the CFIUS Staff Chairperson from 2009 until 2014. During Mir’s five years in the staff chairperson’s seat, CFIUS approved Russia’s 2010 purchase of Uranium One, effectively handing Vladimir Putin control of 20 percent of America’s uranium. Also during Mir’s term, the Treasury Department refused to conduct two legally-required CFIUS investigations of Port Canaveral’s 2014 container terminal lease concession to the UAE’s Gulftainer.

    LISTEN – everyone! It’s up to us to take our country back. Please engage…

    Summary of tweet thread from NavyJack‏ @USNJack 10-25-17

    Now that the first brick in the wall has fallen (DNC/Clinton Funding of Dossier) we must keep our focus. While encouraging to say the least, this shiny object is not the prize. Unraveling UraniumOne is the low hanging fruit and provides the path to the destruction of DeepState. We must insist on a Special Council to investigate this crime to stop it from becoming another dead-end like Benghazi, Fast & Furious, the IRS Tea-Party Targeting & the Clinton Email scandel.

    We all need to call the office of @ChuckGrassley and put him on notice that this one is not going away like the others. This one will keep out attention until prosecuted. We must also do the same with the @TheJusticeDept (Jeff Sessions) immediately and repeat daily until it happens. If not, the shiny bobbles of the media will be used to distract us from this cause.

    By obtaining a UraniumOne special council, Mueller and Rosenstein can be forced into recusal. Once this occurs, the ability of DeepState to control the narrative will be severely diminished. At that point we can refocus our attention on removing the next brick in the wall, Andrew McCabe. Exposing McCabe is the key to achieving prosecution on the unmaskings, the attack against General Flynn, the illegal FISA warrant applications and the entire RussiaGate lie. By forcing testimony from James Comey under oath with the full knowledge of his and McCabes activities, the dam can be broken.

    It must happen in this order to keep Mueller, Rosenstein and McCabe from circling the wagons to keep the truth hidden from the public.

    Call Chuck Grassley’s office: (202) 224-3744. Be polite to whoever answers, but firm. Let them know you are following the UraniumOne pay-for-play and bribery case closely and that you demand the Senate immediately assign special council with or without DOJ consent. [op-ed: Insist that George Webb w/TruthLeaks be consulted. He has been investigating the Uranium/Clinton scandal DAILY for well over a year. He now has tons of valuable information on the Uranium & the Awan spy ring in Congress.]

    Once you are done, call both of your State Senators. Repeat the same information. Then, call the public comment line for US Department of Justice at 202-353-1555. Leave a message repeating the same information. Do it all again the next day.

    If the evidence and testimony of the FBI informant can get into the public domain, we can cause a chain-reaction of people seeking immunity from prosecution in exchange for testimony. That by itself will force Mueller to recuse himself as special council and lawyer up for his own legal defense. Rosenstein will follow right behind him and Comey may well step forward for an immunity deal. If that happens, we get McCabe and Brennen. DeepState would go into panic mode and Clapper would be next in line for immunity to deal with Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes. This must happen and happen soon before the next series of shiny bobbles is put in our way to distract us from the prize we seek; the eventual prosecution of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. When the information breaks regarding Paul Manafort’s involvement in the early phases of UraniumOne with the Podesta Group, don’t panic. His involvement does not excuse the hundreds of millions of dollars that flowed to the Clintons or the crimes they committed along the way. Let the chips fall where they may, but press forward. This is our chance. Let’s not get distracted. Let’s get our country back…

    Question: Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson once again blamed Russia for covering up the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian authorities. What is the Russia’s position on that?

    Response: We absolutely disagree with such a statement.

    Firstly, on October 26, a report of the UN-OPCW Joint Investigative Mechanism was published. We will carefully study this document. It is already evident that assessments of the Russian specialists requested by the JIM have been ignored. At the same time, the report contains conclusions by anonymous research centers and so-called independent experts, which are not supported by any convincing proofs.

    Secondly, Russia has repeatedly called for an impartial and throughout investigation of the chemical incident in Khan Sheikhoun. Instead of objective investigation, we become witnesses of selective implementation of mandates, failure or inability to use the entire array of investigative methods envisioned by the Convention on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, de-facto refusal to conduct an on-site investigation and even, as it turned out recently, an attempt – in the case of the OPCW Fact Finding Mission – to mislead the international community regarding the possibility of safe access to Khan Sheikhoun.

    Thirdly, Russia was persistently trying to ensure that international inspectors be immediately sent to Khan Sheikhoun and Shayrat air base, where the sarin used in Khan Sheikhoun had been allegedly stored. Back in April the UK and other countries blocked the relevant draft decisions that we had put forward at the UN Security Council and the OPCW Executive Council.

    Fourthly, the British side has refused to share the conclusions of its national investigation of the samples allegedly collected in Khan-Sheikhoun. The international community still does not know, how the British authorities received those samples, where and from whom, and was the chain of custody – basic principle of investigation – observed.

    Finally, clearly, if we really want to establish those responsible for using chemical weapons, then these fundamental flaws must be rectified as soon as possible. However, it seems that the situation prevailing now suits Western countries, including the UK, perfectly. What’s more, they are desperately working to ensure that everything remains as it is. And that is because their aim is not to establish the truth but to use international agencies for stepping up pressure on Damascus for political purposes.

    This is THE site for understanding what is going on on THE UKRAINE.

    Why is this important? The Ukraine has been used to start WW3 since July of 2014.

    Over the last three years the evidence is mounting that we have a NAZI fascist dominant group within THE EUROPEAN UNION.

    In this destination is all of the information THEY ARE HIDING: These are the events and the methods and they are NOT IN THE PUBLIC INTERESTS OF THE GLOBAL COMMONERS.

    On other words ordinary people are disposable.


  • Robert Mueller’s complex financial entanglements include investments linked to George Soros and Russia. During Mueller’s tenure at the FBI, high profile cases of financial wrongdoing within hedge funds that he invested in were ignored by federal law enforcement.
