Gareth Porter, independent historian and journalist for IPS News, discusses the lies and innuendo in the IAEA report on Iran; the whole story on Vyacheslav Danilenko, the Russian scientist accused of helping Iran’s (alleged) nuclear weapons program; former IAEA inspector Robert Kelly’s doubts about a “containment chamber” for testing high explosives used in nuclear weapons; why this “intelligence” is most likely passed on to the IAEA by Israel; how the “alleged studies” documents got the current Iranian missile design wrong (proving they are forgeries); why Iran’s cooperation varies with regard to IAEA inspections and additional protocol agreements; and how everyone is hyperventilating about stuff Iran was alleged to have done in 2003 or earlier.

  2. CIA STUPIDITY — TAIL TRYING TO WAG THE HEAD

    Western media now tells us that the CIA spies in Iran just made some small “stupid” mistakes, but because CIA pathological liars are so vastly more intelligent then anyone in Iran, they will soon be back on top.

    Problem is, stupid refers to the stupidity of thinking your more intelligent which gives those with greater intelligence the ability to entrap you in your own stupidity, the predicament liar CIA has got itself into.

    A character trait of those who rule the Western world, they so stupid as to see nothing immoral in deceitfully spying on those who intend you no harm.

  3. Why is Israeli intel on Iran so out of date. Seems almost as incompetent as CIA.

  4. Unfortunately, the vast majority of American non-Antiwar.com readers have it fixed in their minds by now that Iran is building nuclear bombs. They'll never see the debunking or won't pay attention to it.

    I wish democratic and exemplar USerperofA could start acting as an example and destroy some of those nuclear bombs that cost them millions in maintenance. Oh well whats a few million dollars against such sacrosanct duty as to keep us all safe from big bad terrorist. Iranians suffer from _enis envy, they look at USerperofA and see this big _enis like objects the USerperofA keep producing and think hey we want one of those. Look how USerperofAmericans can satisfy their wives with those!! We want one too, they say.

  6. Because there is nothing new going on in Iran but they want a war. So what should they do? Sing the same old song!
