Following the 1979 Islamic revolution he became a member the ultra-conservative faction of the Office for Strengthening Unity [OSU] Between Universities and Theological Seminaries.

About the image: Barry Rosen, a former press officer at the embassy who now works at Columbia University told Reuters he had no direct memory of Mr. Ahmadinejad but supported another former hostage, former Colonel David Roeder, who said yesterday that Mr Ahmadinejad had assisted interrogations of the hostages.
Roeder said that out of his 51 interrogations, Ahmadinejad personally had conducted one-third of them!

"Despite our political differences as individuals, we all agree as a group that it is time to seek remedy. Ahmadinejad and his government need to be treated as a pariah."
