As America turns harder to the Left, we are beset with stupidity, foolishness, outrageous lies, scandals, and endless political folly to our own detriment.
We are become like the Melba toast European Socialists and strive to be more like them. Even today, presumptive Liberal Republican nominee John McCain has suggested that America “listen to the views and respect the collective will of our democratic allies”. I don’t know what could be more stupid. If we listened” to these “democratic allies” Mr. McDufus – we would NOT be in Iraq OR Afghanistan taking the war to the Jihadists. We would be cowering with one appeasement policy after another while we are turned into a Muslim state from within as it is in Europe.
America has obviously lost it’s gonads as well as it’s brains and McCain might as well be John Kerry, Clinton or Obama, because they all state the same imbecillic nonsense in once capacity or another.
Meanwhile, the country Americans love to denounce; France – has suddenly jumped into the realm of common sense that America has abandoned, in order to state what many of us already knew the day the bogus NIE report was released by the CIA last December.
The French newspaper “Le Monde” says that it has documentation that Iran is still seeking to possess nuclear weapons and that last December’s NIW report that stated that Iran abandoned that quest – is bogus, and that it was a politically motivated report that did not give a true picture of the present nuclear program of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Duh. Those of us in America with a brain left already figured that out the day the bogus report was released.
They say the documents detail discussions between top Iranian officials about their ongoing nuclear program.
The article is translated through Babelfish:
At the time the Security Council of UNO recently adopted a third series of sanctions intended to force Iran to stop his nuclear program, (Le Monde) had access to documents attesting that Teheran continued a military nuclear program after 2003, as opposed to what a report/ratio of the national direction of the American information affirmed, published on December 3, 2007.
February 25, the assistant general manager of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Finn Olli Heinonen, had presented evidence of the existence of this Iranian nuclear military program. A letter addressed during 2004 Gholam Reza Aghazadeh, to vice-president of the Organization of the atomic energy of Iran (AEOI), by engineer Mahdi Khaniki, one of the principal interlocutors of the IAEA and former ambassador of Iran in Syria, confirms its charges.
This document draws up an inventory of fixtures of the relations between Teheran and the inspectors of the agency of Vienna. Mahdi Khaniki recalls in particular that the inspectors of the IAEA – who act under the direction of Mr. Heinonen – required to see the contracts relating to the acquisition of spare parts entering the development of the centrifugal machines. Assembled in “cascade”, these centrifugal machines make it possible to enrich uranium, possibly until obtaining a military quality.
“At a meeting which proceeded on January 31, 2004 in the presence of Dr. Rohani (Hassan Rohani, principal negotiator of the Iranian nuclear program until the end of 2005), this one decided that these contracts were to be prepared formedlies to the wishes of the AEOI, so that they are ready to be provided with the IAEA.” “It is necessary to note, adds it, that the representative of the ministry for defense and assistance to the mées rearforces indicated at this meeting that the contracts had been written for a presentation (with the IAEA).”
“But, Mahdi Khaniki continues, of the parts of these contracts, which I myself saw with the ministry for defense, were crossed out black lines and the quantities did not appear; it thus seems that these contracts will cause more questions than those which should (normally) be presented at Agency (IAEA).” And to conclude: “Naturally, I asked as a preliminary to engineer Mohamadi to prepare the number necessary of contracts (corrected) and I hope that it already did it.”
For the specialists in the Iranian file, this letter represents an obvious proof of the implication of the Iranian ministry for defense in the nuclear file. What consolidates the suspicions on the military character of this program, while attesting efforts of the Iranians to dissimulate nature of it.
According to sources’ close to a service of information, this mail lies within the scope of the “Project 13”, whose heading is “project for the disappearance of the threats”.
Given what Ahmadinejad’s rhetoric has been in the past, is “project for the disappearance of the threats” in reference to his call for the annihilation of Israel and the punishment of America? The intents of Iran are clearly made, and I’m amazed at the deliberate level of ignorance we wish to place on this problem as the shouts grow louder against any kind of military action against Iran.
This project would have vocation to mislead the inspectors of the IAEA. The Research center in physics (PHRC) of Lavizan Shian was thus renamed “AMAD”, and its “departments” became “projects”, in order to scramble the tracks. In the second time, probably in 2006, name “AMAD” was also removed. Since, it is more made mention only of the “Center” to indicate the management of the military nuclear program.
The American services of information collected, in mid-December 2006, a conversation between two not identified civils servant held with the ministry for defense in Teheran and making state of divergences between persons in charge for the AEOI and the ministry for defense. One of the two interlocutors refers to the “Center” and underlines: “the AEOI was occupied of its interests, and its policy was at 180 degrees of ours. Currently, as for the CTBTO (Organization of the treaty of complete prohibition of the nuclear tests), I think that the ministry of defense must have the last word, parce that they (leaders of the AEOI) know that with the end of the account we intend to lead tests.” The doubt remains on the nature of these “tests”, but this reference reinforces the suspicions.
The information made public by Olli Heinonen, in February, in Vienna, contradicts a part of the conclusions of the report of the American services in December 2007. To explain this inconsistency, certain French diplomats evoke a “major dysfunction” within the American administration.
Other sources advance that, during 2007, the American services of information, as well as the Pentagon, worried about the climate sabre-rattler which reigned then in Washington, and about the risk to see president George Bush opening a new military face against Iran. The purpose of the report/ratio of December would then have been to cross short to the temptation of the American executive to resort to the force.
In other words, the purpose of the NIE report that was celebrated by every Democrat and mainstream media source in America, was to short circuit and circumvent any attack and war plans that were on the boards at the White House and Pentagon to deal with the Iranian nuclear threat.
I would call that treason, but Americans no longer like that word, unless someone dares question Global Warming – then it’s treason. But to undermine the country in favor of those who are sworn to our destruction – is today called patriotism by those that have racist pastors asking for God to damn the country or claim they were shot at by snipers in Bosnia.
Even the Treason Rag of Record, the New York Times is finding that it has to tapdance backwards on their celebration fo the NIE report they so loudly cheered and toasted.
NY Times Backpedaling on Iran NIE
March 7, 2008 – by Craig Karpel
The other day a friend who’s a distinguished journalist emailed me, “How about the New York Times’ FURIOUS backpedaling on the National Intelligence Estimate? They could have done the same analysis when it was released!”
At the gathering of ambassadors and arms-control experts at the International Atomic Energy Agency’s Vienna headquarters, newly obtained and declassified documents were revealed that are “not consistent with any application other than the development of a nuclear weapon.”
“France’s ambassador, François-Xavier Deniau,” the Times reported, “said questions raised by the Vienna meeting had opened a ‘new chapter’ in the West’s effort to keep Iran from acquiring nuclear arms.” The Times explained:
This confrontation is different from the long-running American-led campaign. Gone are the veiled threats of military action from the White House. The wind largely went out of that effort in December, when American intelligence officials surprised Western allies — and angered Bush administration hawks — with a report saying Iran had halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003.
Ah, so this confrontation was different, because the French, with their savoir faire, their joi de vivre, their déja vu all over again, were at last convinced that Iran — which has a space program whose covert goal is to put into orbit satellites capable of dropping nuclear weapons on any city on earth, such as Paris — must be subjected to a higher level of inaction, such as the toothless additional sanctions the Security Council authorized this week.
…But the NIE says Iran put an end to its secret nuclear weapons program, no?
Virtually all commentators have either misunderstood or misrepresented the NIE’s “We judge with high confidence that in fall 2003, Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program.”
The NIE goes on to say, “We assess with moderate confidence Tehran had not restarted its nuclear weapons program as of mid-2007, but we do not know whether it currently intends to develop nuclear weapons.”
So “Tehran halted its nuclear weapons program” doesn’t mean “Tehran ended its nuclear weapons program.” It means the program was suspended.
It inconceivable to me that the word “halted” wasn’t deliberately chosen as an alternative — misleading because of its ambiguity — to the unmistakably clear word that should have been used. The intelligence official(s) who signed off on using “halted” instead of “suspended” in that life-and-death sentence should be found and fired.
Moderate confidence — I wish I had that much confidence in our intelligence agencies.
….The Times has found itself in a position where it needs to account for having neglected to report last December that — as to the intelligence community’s assessment of when our most virulent and implacable enemy will be able to make nuclear weapons — between the 2005 NIE and the 2007 NIE “basically nothing had changed.” Is the paper of record now pleading myopia?
It will probably utilize the Hillary Clinton Method: “Those are what our memories of it are” defense and say they ‘mis-spoke’.
Or…they can employ the Obama Defense and simply deny their assertions were ever made to the contrary, and then throw their reporters under the bus to join Obama’s grandmother.
But actions speak louder than words, and France is acting on the belief that Iran is on the verge of nuclear weapons that it will use on it’s enemies. This has resulted in Tehran getting angry and issuing a warning to French President Sarkozy.
I think that speaks to the truth of Iran’s ready-to-premiere nuclear weapons ability.
