Well-documented in this piece. I guess that shady money-making deals are supposed to go hand-in-hand with faux expressions of religious piety. And when you read the story, you will see that if anything, “shady” is an understatement when describing the work and activities of the Revolutionary Guard.

I am not sure that Hillary Clinton was altogether right in describing Iran as a “military dictatorship.” A more accurate description would label Iran as a military dictatorship plus pyramid scheme.
