Iranian ‘public service’ video denounces American support for regime change

The Iranian Intelligence Ministry has released a public service video that attempts to link opposition movements within Iran to the American government.

In a blog for online newspaper The Huffington Post, Sam Sedaei explains the Iranian thinking behind the video. It portrays the United States as attempting to implement regime change through support for NGOs and individuals within Iranian society, and uses this to justify limitations of freedom.

One section of the video shows three individuals discussing some sort of mission that they have planned using the Internet and satellite television, in return for which they have been promised American visas. A suspicious family member discovers a gun, and calls an Intelligence Ministry hotline number.

“Security is a blessing which depends on the vigilance of every member of the community,” says the voiceover. “We are the guardians of your information.”
