FALSE FLAG: CIA Planted Evidence on Iranian Nuclear Activities

1-Stuart J HooperStuart J. Hooper

No, this not a ‘conspiracy theory’. It is about time that people consider and challenge the power and activities of intelligence agencies in the 21st Century.

It has been revealed, through the case of a recently convicted whistleblower leaking information on the CIA’s involvement with Iran, that 15 years ago the agency was involved in a counterintelligence operation against the Iranians.

The CIA counterfeited documents and created ‘doctored blueprints‘ that would provide ‘smoking gun‘ evidence for an IAEA investigation of Iran. Also, the CIA was looking to send the Iranians into dead-ends and cause them to waste time and resources by providing incorrect and misleading information.

These revelations are proving troubling for the International Atomic Energy Agency, who relied on information from intelligence agencies, including the CIA, to create their reports. The IAEA will now, if it wishes to be considered a legitimate organisation, have to completely reevaluate its conclusions on Iran’s nuclear program.

The IAEA would do well to become acquainted with the idea that the clandestine activities undertaken by intelligence agencies call into question the supposed intentions of their public activities. If an agency is willing to work in questionable ways behind close doors, why would it not also try to do so openly; say in the form of a report to an international organisation?

Clandestine, manipulative and dangerous work continues to emanate from intelligence agencies to this day, and did not suddenly come to a halt at the end of the Cold War. This kind of reckless and provocative activity needs to come to an end immediately. An unaccountable and out of control intelligence agency cannot, under any circumstances, be allowed to cause a new world war. As the Iranians now have a defensive agreement with Russia, this is not mere hyperbole.

The next time somebody accuses you of being a ‘conspiracy theorist‘ for daring to suggest CIA involvement in an event – send them to this article.

CIA-planted ‘evidence’ may force IAEA review of Iran’s alleged nuke arms program – report

RT

Doctored blueprints for nuclear weapon components supplied to Iran by the CIA 15 years ago could force the IAEA to review its conclusions on Iran’s atomic program, which was potentially based on misleading intelligence, Bloomberg reports.

The details of the Central Intelligence Agency operation back in 2000 were made public as part of a judicial hearing into a case involving Jeffrey Sterling, an agent convicted of leaking classified information on CIA spying against Iran.

“The goal is to plant this substantial piece of deception information on the Iranian nuclear-weapons program, sending them down blind alleys, wasting their time and money,” a May 1997 CIA cable submitted to the court reads.

The intelligence in question pertains to fake designs of atomic components that were transferred to Iran in February 2000…
