is Steve Redisch of VOA
استیو ردیش صدای آمریکا کیست
Yesterday I mentioned the name of Steve Redisch in an article about the VOA court case of Setareh Derakhshesh (1). Some people contacted me and asked who Mr. Redisch is. Please find the link to a VOA Press Release about him dated January 8, 2008 when he was hired during the Bush Administration, i.e. a year before Obama's inauguration (2). His LinkedIn is also listed below in the footnotes (3).
You may ask what qualifications Steve Redisch has to qualify him to run the VOA Persian Service. I have been wondering about the same question all these years too. So if you find the answer, please publish so that all will know. What I can say is that Steve Redisch is an expert in working with Washington Establishment in general and balancing influence of different DC Iranian Lobby Groups, in VOA, in particular.
If President Donald Trump wants to see the work of Washington Establishment in action, all he needs to do, would be to review the activities of Mr. Steve Redisch at VOA. I wrote about it, in May of 2015, during the Obama Administration, but they did not care (4).
