Former CIA official Philip Giraldi says that:
U.S. intelligence has concluded that the document published recently by the Times of London, which purportedly describes an Iranian plan to do experiments on what the newspaper described as a “neutron initiator” for an atomic weapon, is a fabrication.
Like the Nigerian “yellow cake” forgery, U.S. intelligence had to have known the Iranian document was a forgery, and yet failed to debunk either. Indeed, as Time points out, the yellow cake document:
had been checked out â€” and debunked â€” by U.S. intelligence a year before the President repeated it.
Indeed, a claim that Iran is trying to buy uranium is now being made against Iran, just as it was with Iraq. Specifically, Associated Press – citing unnamed “diplomats” from an unnamed country – is reporting today that Iran is trying to obtain uranium. However, Iran says that it has 1,400 uranium mines (a senior IAEA official was allowed to visit one of the mines in 1992) – so why would Iran need to purchase more uranium from another country?
The parallels go even further, since war against both countries were planned many years ago. Specifically:
And false linkages between terrorists and both countries are be (or may still be) made. Specifically:
Disclaimer: I don’t like the Iranian Mullahs – I think they are fundamentalist fanatics, and the violence against protesters is barbaric. I also didn’t like Saddam Hussein, as he was a ruthless tyrant.
But there is a little difference between not liking someone and sending American boys and girls overseas to be killed in an unnecessary war.
