Fear, and Courage effectively ⊮ Kindle Ebook Author Reza Kahlili ⋝ TRUTH OR LIES I WAS FOLLOWED, I said.CIA agent Steve Clark uncrossed his legs He leaned forward, his expression stiffening Followed I tried not to let my voice reflect my nervousness Yes I thought I might be imagining it, but I took a few diversions and the tail was still there It took me an hour to lose him.Agent Clark leveled his blue eyes at me Wally, I want you to be completely aware of the consequences if things go wrong The United States government will deny any relationship to you There wont be a navy fleet coming to your rescue Im sorry to be so blunt, but you must understand this Do I make myself clear I swallowed hard and said, Yes I understand It was difficult to miss Agent Clarks message I was disposable.It was 1981 The revolutionary Islamic government had been in power in Iran for than two years In that time, it had ensnared my country and my people in its brutal grip I had seen friends executed in cold blood, their last look carved in my memory forever But now, I was as far away from that government as I had been since the revolution, in a safe house high above Californias Malibu.With my CIA contact.Making plans to return to my homeland as a spy.The worlds most powerful intelligence agency had given me the code name Wally I never thought to ask them why they chose it It was hard to believe that I looked like a Wally in their eyes, but maybe that was why they gave the name to me The assignment they asked me to undertake would have been dangerous for any Iranian But I was not just any Iranian I was a member of the dreaded Sepah e Pasdaran, the Ayatollah Khomeinis Revolutionary Guards.Now that Agent Clark knew I understood that I was ultimately on my own, he moved forward Weve arranged for you to be trained in Europe We chose London since you mentioned your in laws live there This should not arouse any suspicion In London, youll meet the people who will be your contacts from here on out These are good people, Wally.He handed me a slip of paper with a phone number to call my new contact in London, a woman named Carol Under no circumstances should you use a private phone Always make your calls from public phones.I stared at the number for a long time, trying to keep my feelings in check I was terrified at the thought of where my return to Iran would lead me The Revolutionary Guards looked everywhere for spies No one was above suspicion And they were likely to be especially wary of me when I got back I hadnt just traveled out of the country Id gone to the United States, a sworn enemy They knew Id gone to college in America and Id given them a good reason for my being there now, but they would certainly question me when I returned How would I hold up to their scrutiny If they caught me, I knew what would happen I had seen what they did to spies and to those who opposed the government The Guards drugged them, raped their wives and children in front of them, and gouged out their eyeballs, all in an effort to get them to talk I thought of my wife, Somaya, and shuddered.As they did every day, the visions came to me of what I had witnessed in the infamous Evin Prison, where the government kept political detainees Theyd paraded teenage girls in front of me as they led them to their deaths These girls were barely out of their childhood, barely old enough to think for themselves, much less form thoughts against the state They knew nothing about the machinations of politics They were innocent in every sense of the word and certainly innocent of the trumped up charges that led to their imprisonment Yet they suffered fates too brutal for even the most vicious criminal None of these girls would ever know the joys of romantic love None of them would ever hold her own baby in her arms Their few remaining moments of life had been filled with a level of abuse few can imagine.Wally Agent Clark startled me out of my thoughts I realized he had been watching me as I stared off into space Yes There is one other thing, and I dont want you to take it personally Its just part of the procedure we have to go through He cleared his throat Youll have to undergo a lie detector test.I didnt protest This made sense, of course Agent Clark might have been comfortable with me and confident about my motives, but if I were a professional spy on behalf of the Revolutionary Guards, they would have trained me to behave exactly as I had in the CIAs presence The lie detector test was insurance.Agent Clark arranged for the test to take place in the Hacienda Hotel in El Segundo, just south of Los Angeles International Airport I entered through the restaurant, as instructed, and walked to the back hall This led to a bank of elevators From there I headed to room 407, taking the stairway instead of the elevator to make sure no one was following me At the room, I used the key Agent Clark had given me He was already there.The agent administering the test arrived shortly thereafter, carrying an oversized briefcase He didnt offer his name, only nodding instead I noticed that hed tied the knot on his thin tie too tight.Though I wasnt hiding anything from the CIA, I began to feel a hint of panic The agent must have noticed this, because he smiled and told me to relax Doing so was not going to be easy for me As the agent unpacked his equipment, my heart pounded I glanced at Agent Clark and he offered me a reassuring look This did little to calm me.The other agent explained the process, telling me what each of the several wires coming from the machine did The agent would be reading my nervous system, which I had disciplined myself to control, though I wasnt doing the best job of it right now I eyed the door For just a moment, I considered making a break for it I would find some peaceful place where neither the CIA nor the Revolutionary Guards could find me.But then I remembered the executions The hangings The torture My friends And my resolve returned as never before.The agent asked me to sit down and roll up my sleeves He hooked the wires from the machine to my arms, wrist, fingers, and chest Sweat formed on my forehead.You can relax, Wally, the agent said This isnt going to hurt.Agent Clark moved into the second room of the suite, closing the door behind him The other agent told me to look straight ahead He sat to my right, adjusted himself a couple of times, and said he was going to ask some questions all I needed to do was answer with a simple yes or no He bent over, concentrating intently as a roll of paper extruded from the machine, his pen ready to make notations.Is your name Reza Kahlili Yes.Are you twenty seven years old Yes.Were you born in Iran Yes.Are you married Yes.Do you work for the Revolutionary Guards Yes.Did they ask you to come here No.Did they help you with your travel plans Yes.Did they ask you to contact us No.Have you contacted the Guards since being here No.Have you told them about this meeting No.I noticed that several of the questions seemed repetitive, with nuanced differences I wondered if this was the agents attempt to trip me up.Does your wife know you are here She knows I am in America but she doesnt know I am with you.Stay with yes or no, please Does anyone know about your contact with the CIA No well, yes Well, not really but FBI agents He did not let me finish Only yes or no, Wally.I was sweating heavily at this point This made the places where the agent had attached the electrodes itchy The agent watched me shift in my seat and then made a notation I wondered how badly my obvious nervousness was hurting my chances.The agent turned two pages in his notes, seeming to skip ahead Have you been inside Evin Prison Yes.Do the interrogators rape virgins before theyre executed I I didnt realize Agent Clark would be telling you Yes or no, please, Wally.I swallowed as memories tumbled one after the other Parvanehs last look at me Royas letter Yes They rape the virgins before they are executed because they believe virgins are sent straight to heaven.Wally, please, just yes or no Did you witness this No.Did you witness tortures and executions at Evin Prison In the hum of the air conditioning, I could hear Naser calling, Reeezzzza.I exhaled slowly Yes.The agent turned back a couple of pages to where he had been.Do you work for the Revolutionary Guards as their chief computer engineer Yes.Did you acquire this position through Kazem Aliabadi Yes.Was Kazem Aliabadi a childhood friend Yes.Was Naser Hushmand also a childhood friend Yes.As far as you know, is Kazem loyal to the goals of the Revolutionary Guards Yes.As far as you know, is Kazem aware that you do not share his beliefs No.As far as you know, does Kazem consider you loyal to the goals and ideals of the Revolutionary Guards Yes.Have you taken an oath to remain loyal to the Revolutionary Guards, including a vow to become a martyr for the Ayatollah Khomeini Yes.Is Kazem aware that you took this oath Yes.Do you consider it immoral to break an oath to your friend I felt a lump in my throat as a tide rose in my chest My eyes brimmed with tears I had left home a respected member of the exclusive Revolutionary Guards I would return a jasoos, a spy betraying my country I knew that if my father were alive and found out what I was doing, he would turn his back on me I knew that my grandmother, who taught me to be a devoted Muslim and to be honest and trustworthy, would be ashamed of me.Through the roar of blood in my ears, I heard the agent ask, Would you like me to repeat the question How could I be a spy if I could not hide my emotions and provide fast answers to provocative questions I had joined the Guards with the purest intentions I believed at the beginning of the revolution that the Islamic movement was fair and just, carrying the promise of a nations salvation Instead, I had witnessed brutality, murders, and lies committed in the name of God I had witnessed the destruction of a nation Because of this, I was about to embark on a life of treason I was going to lie to my wife, lie to the people I loved most I was going to risk their lives without giving them the chance to protect themselves.Wally The CIA saw me as a godsend, an asset they needed at a time when they were struggling to understand the threat that Iran had become to them If I was going to help them, they needed to know what made me tick Yet I wasnt sure I could explain myself to them How could I make them understand why I was risking my family and betraying my friends to save my country when I wasnt sure myself For the first time since Id begun this journey, tears broke over the edge of my eyes and dripped down my cheeks.Wally, the agent said softly, do you consider it immoral to break an oath to your friend The question split my soul in two.Wally Because the two people inside me had contradictory answers And God would not send half of me to hell.Reza Reza KahliliAn exhilarating true story that reads like a spy thriller about a former CIA operative recruited out of Iran, while he served as a member of the secretive and highly
