Hezbollah Family Photos

Everyday my American Enterprise Institute colleague Ali Alfoneh will cull the Iranian press and produce a daily summary. It really is an invaluable resource which several hundred U.S. government officials, senior military officers, and intelligence analysts make use of on a daily basis.

A couple days ago, Asr-e Iran published a series of photographs of Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah’s family. The photographs must have upset someone in Tehran or in southern Lebanon, because the photographs were removed by the website. Unfortunately for Nasrallah, Google images already caught many of them, for example, here, here, here, here, and here.

Sleep well, Nasrallah clan. No one is now watching you, tracing your movements, gauging your complicity. Maybe Langley is asleep, but if the Iranians tried to take down those photos so quickly, I doubt that others are.
