Sara Carter has published a story about a contributor to the far-left New York Times by the name of Kaveh Afrasiabi. He is currently facing charges of being an agent for one of Joe Biden’s favorite countries, Iran. He had made or received over 33,000 phone calls to and from that country.
Carter says it does not surprise her that the NYT would have a contributor such as he because they only look down their collective noses at the United States of America.
Most of the Time’s writers are extremists themselves, so they can sympathize with fellow propagandists. But, Carter said so many new facts that are now coming out have caught her interest. She wrote:
I’m concerned about it on many levels. First and foremost, I’m worried that a possible foreign agent of Iran could have been brainwashing more Times liberal readers than we ever imagined. Secondly, I’m deeply troubled that the feds took 13 years to bring charges against Afrasiabi.
According to reports, the federal agents literally recorded over 33,000 phone calls during those years, which means they were building a case against him for over a decade.
Afrasiabi is an opinion writer and the idea that the federal government could be listening into his calls for 13 years is really worrisome to me. I’m not saying Afrasiabi is innocent or guilty but I’m also on the phone quite a bit and many of my sources are foreign. It’s my job.
Acting U.S. Attorney DuCharme said:
“Afrasiabi allegedly sought to influence the American public and American policymakers for the benefit of his employer, the Iranian government, by disguising propaganda as objective policy analysis and expertise.”
Afrasiabi has a PhD and frequently publishes books and articles. He also appears on American television programs discussing foreign relations matters, particularly Iran’s relations with the United States, according to the Justice Department.

Afrasiabi pleaded not guilty in February after being arrested at his Boston-area home, according to reports:
At an August 25 status hearing, a US attorney handling the case, Ian Richardson, said he was preparing to turn over 33,000 audio recordings of Afrasiabi. An August 27 letter said that in addition to the audio recordings, the government is turning over Internal Revenue Service, health insurance, and banking records. Afrasiabi told The Algemeiner in an email that the recordings are “the sum of all my phone calls over 13 years maybe even longer, I have better things to do than to listen to my own calls to my family, friends etc. A giant waste of time.”
