IRGC Commander Warns Rouhani on Historic Phone Call with Obama

IRGC Commander Maj. Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari today criticized and warned Iranian President Hassan Rouhani for his historic phone call with President Obama.

“The president took a firm and appropriate position during his stay (in New York),” Gen. Jafari said in an interview with the Tasnim News. (, 30 September)

“But just as he refused to meet Obama, he should also have refused to speak with him on the telephone and should have waited for concrete action by the United States,” Jafari added.

“If we see errors being made by officials, the revolutionary forces will issue the necessary warnings,” said Jafari.

The warning was a brazen interference in political affairs of the country. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei had warned senior IRGC officers in a recent meeting to stay out of politics.

These trouble makers don't know when to quit. How does he address the highest elected official of the country in such a threatening manner? I'm sure these guys still have Khamenei's full support, otherwise they wouldn't be issuing such strong statements.

I hope Rouhani delivers a blow to the IRGC and makes it more difficult for them to interfere with politics by scoring more political points and giving more credibility to the office of president.
