Guidelines of Levey and Glacer to Pressure Iran (1)

These centers from which the anti-Iran ideas emanate include research institutes, the Israeli lobby, the corporate and Zionist mass media, Congresspersons and the architects of sanction stratagems in the congress and administration.

Among them, Stuart A. Levey, stands out as the most prominent politician behind the U.S. Iran sanctions.

The tools used to undermine Iran’s economic and political status in the world are greatly varied.  A broad, multinational, multi-faceted, and targeted sanctions are Levey’s four basic tenets to sabotage Iran’s rising capabilities in the region and around the globe.

By the executive order of President George W. Bush on July 21, 2004, Stuart Levey was appointed as an “Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury in financial Intelligence and Terrorism.”  According to a source in the former administration, Levey has played a central role in combating North Korea and Iran’s allegedly “illicit conduct” in the international financial system.  Prior to his latest nomination, Levey for 11 years functioned as a judge in a private sector Washington law firm specializing in “white collar criminal defense” cases, i.e., high level corporate society individuals who participate in fraud, bribery, insider trading, embezzlement, computer crimes, money laundering, etc.

During his tenure at the Treasury Department, Levey established a fully functioning intelligence and analysis office – the first in the world of any finance ministry worldwide, headed by an Assistant Secretary.  Some criticized the work of his office when it was revealed that Levey’s division routinely acquired Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication [SWIFT] information, which tracks bank transactions worldwide. The information included the bank customers’ names and account numbers, which some felt went beyond the privacy laws, but Levey justified turning over records to FBI and CIA offices, saying that, “Our intelligence office maps illicit financial networks and helps us identify opportunities to pressure, disrupt and weaken them [presumably ‘terrorists’].

Daniel Glacer, US Deputy Assistant Secretary for Terrorist Financing and Financial Crimes at the US Treasury is another US official using the economic tools of the U.S. Treasury Department to deepen and extend the multinational sanctions against North Korea and Iran.  By pressuring countries doing business with Iran, Glacer did his best to support sanctions against Iran related companies and banks including Export Development Bank of Iran and Iran’s revolutionary guard corps- related corporations.

Zionist Regime defense (war) minister, Ehud Barack, met with Glacer in May 2009 because of his high influence on US policy-making against Tehran.

He is the deputy assistant secretary for terrorist financing and financial crimes (Assistant Director General in Korea) at the U.S. Treasury.

Robert J. Einhorn is also one of those US radical politicians against Iran. He believes sanctions against Irans’ defensive and military sections are more effective than other kinds of sanctions. This politician had an important function in pressuring Russia against Tehran as well as the ratification of complementary sanctions.

Einhorn is the Department's Special Advisor for Nonproliferation and Arms Control. Before returning to the State Department, where he had earlier served for over29  years, he was a Senior Adviser at the Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies from 2001  to 2009.  From1972  until 1986, Mr. Einhorn held a wide range of arms control and nonproliferation positions at the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, including as a member of the U.S. delegation to the Strategic Arms Reduction Talks with the Soviet Union. He joined the State Department's Policy Planning Staff in 1986 and left the position in 1992 to become a Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Bureau of Political-Military Affairs. From 1999 to 2009 he served as Assistant Secretary of State for Nonproliferation. He holds a bachelors degree from Cornell University and a master’s degree from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs of Princeton University. (Raja News)
