Iranian Journalist, Amir Hossein Motaghi, Defects, 
Says Obama Team Speaking for Iran 3-29-15
Amir Hossein Motaghi, managed Public Relations for  Iranian president's Hassan Rouhani's 2013 electoral campaign. He created  Rouhani's benign, smiling public persona and has remained a close media aide to Rouhani.

Motaghi said the Iranian" reporters" at the P5+1 negotiations are there to control the flow of news back to Iran. {“There are a number of people attending on the Iranian side at the negotiations who are said to be journalists reporting on the negotiations,” he told Irane Farda television. “But they are not journalists and their main job is to make sure that all the news fed back to Iran goes through their channels.}

Stating, “My conscience will not allow me to carry out my profession in this manner any more,”
he defected during the P5+1 nuclear talks in Lausanne, Switzerland, according to a British Telegraph report.

Motaghi's most disturbing observation  is that: The US negotiating team are mainly there to speak on Iran’s behalf with other members of the 5+1 countries and convince them of a deal.”
