In an interview with Antiwar Radio, former CIA senior analyst Ray McGovern says that two of his most trusted intelligence sources suspect an Israeli hand behind the alleged Iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador, telling him that:
It would be very much be in consonance with past Mossad practice to suck this kind of information into the system in America, and that they have willing accomplices in the White House, first and foremost, John Brennan.
Iran: US plot allegations resemble Iraq WMD claims (but not in the way Ahmadinejad says so)
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said on Monday U.S. allegations of an Iranian assassination plot resembled its claims of weapons of mass destruction that formed the basis for the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and would prove to be equally untrue,
Ahmadinejad said Washington had fabricated the plot of an Iranian seeking to kill Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to Washington in order to cause a rift between Tehran and Saudi Arabia and dominate the oil-rich Gulf.
“In the past the U.S. administration claimed there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. They said it so strongly, they offered and presented documentations and everyone said ‘yes, we believe in you, we buy it’,” Ahmadinejad said in a live interview on Al Jazeera television.
As my research and that of many others has shown, the Bush adminstration’s statements about Iraqi WMDs and other fixed intelligence can be traced to Israel and its foreign partisans in the United States. Why doesn’t President Ahmadinejad know this? And if he does, why doesn’t he say so? By failing to expose the source of the Iraq war deception, the Iranian leader is providing cover for those now seeking to induce America to go to war with Iran.
