Gareth Porter, investigative historian and journalist specializing in U.S. national security policy, discusses his article “Who Was Behind the Delhi Bombing;” the evidence that points to an Israeli false-flag operation instead of an Iranian revenge attack; US efforts to sabotage trade between Iran and India (the largest importer of Iranian oil); forever playing catch-up to lies thattravel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes;” the seeming consensus between Mossad and US intelligence agencies that Iran is not making nuclear weapons; and whether Benjamin Netanyahu will endorse a Republican candidate to replace insufficiently-pro-Israel president Obama.

  1. This is an extremely interesting and revealing interview – with no comment necessary. My thanks to both of you, Scott and Gareth.

  2. Proof please

  3. If you cannot prove your points, then you may aswell say the tooth fairy is alive and well and living in Boston Mass

  4. Ron Paul — What is his position on minimum wage?

    The more wealth one owns, the more concerned they are about politics, and the more likely they are to vote and to fund politics. That is why Western democracy is pure corruption, as the voting majority is always the 51% most educated and wealth, as minimum wage for laboring class work is always a starvation wage.

  5. Only one chance for Ron Paul to be President — Rise minimum wage

    Obama won the White House with only 26% of the vote, as half of voters never showed up at the polls. My half of voters, we the uneducated laboring-class voters, and until a politician comes at us with a campaign promise to raise the minimum wage — we shall forever remain non-voters.

    Waste time voting for our next set of dictators — No way.

  6. It's fascinating how this works.

    An international gang of racist supremacist, criminally insane mass murdering psychopaths has been for decades using every bit of its power and influence to get a Muslim Christian war going, a war that would embroil 2.5 billion people in a slaughter that would last for generations and have disastrous consequences for both those communities.

    Once they get that snowball rolling down the hill all by itself and it becomes impossible to stop and people are asking who is responsible for this unprecedented human catastrophe guys like you are going to get on your alternative media sites and reasonably explain how even this gangs assassination squad, the Mossad, tried its darndest to stop it – and you'll believe every reasonable and balanced word you utter.

    Truly amazing!

  7. JohnEllis02,

    WHY? BECAUSE THE GREENS, LIBERTARIANS, CONSTITUTIONALISTS, TEABAGGERS OCCUPY MOVEMENT AND OTHER NON ESTABLISHMENT SEGMENTS OF SOCIETY DON'T HAVE THE PRESENCE OF MIND OR THE FORCE OF INTELLECT TO COME TOGETHER AND MAKE COMMON CAUSE AGAINST THE DEMOCRAT AND REPUBLICAN WINGS OF THE WAR PARTY:

  8. surprised,

    Well, I am not surprised by any of this. The mandate of Mossad, the CIA, MI6, KGB, Revolutionary Guard Corps, etc., etc., is to kill people, period, end of story. People involved in these cult like organizations worship death, the love killing, and they convince themselves that they are patriots because they rack up such large body counts. These people are not patriots, they do not love their countries, they love death, they are servants to a devil worse than Satan, if that is even possible.

  9. would that be the same tooth fairy that lied us into war with iraq and told us that fire can melt the galvanized steel and concrete of modern towers but not foreign passports which are seamingly impervious to fire??
