Hassan Abbasi (Persian: حسن عباسی‎) is a political strategist and conspiracy theorist,[3] an Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps officer and head of its think-tank ‘Center for Borderless Security Doctrinal Analysis’.[8] Hassan Abbasi and Major General Jafari were the key architects of Iran's Doctrine of Asymmetric warfare.[9]

He was a jury member in 2011 edition of Fajr International Film Festival[10] and a lecturer in the 2013 International Conference on Hollywoodism.[11]

After Clifford May,[12] Amir Taheri has dubbed him “the Kissinger of Islam” in a The Telegraph article,[13] and also quoted an anonymous European diplomat in Tehran saying "to Iran's new ruling elite, Abbasi is the big strategic brain".[14] In 2004, Michael Ledeen claimed that he serves as "theoretician" in the office of Supreme Leader of Iran with an special responsibility for North American affairs.[15] According to Shmuel Bar, Abbasi "is said to be affiliated with Mesbah Yazdi... a supporter of the Hojjatiyeh and of Ahmadinejad... one of the main contributors to Ahmadinejad’s strategic thought".[16] In 2014, a security research of Hewlett-Packard claimed that the «Basij Cyber Council» operates under the direction of Abbasi.[17]
