Processing Distortion: “Delving Deep into the Latest on Iran & Disruptive Israeli Threats”

Peter B. Collins Presents Gareth Porter

Journalist and historian Gareth Porter returns to discuss recent developments regarding Iran, Syria and Afghanistan. We talk about Obama’s bluff on Syria that led to Russia’s intervention, just before Iran displayed its new posture at the UN General Assembly. He offers insight into the last-minute wrinkles added by French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius that stalled the Geneva talks in early November, and how Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu threatened to attack Iran through a French intermediary. Porter also provides important history on Iran’s new President Rouhani and his previous role as nuclear negotiator, Ayatollah Khamenei’s recent fatwa against nuclear weapons, and the reported final negotiations with the Karzai government regarding residual US forces after the promised withdrawal by the end of 2014.

Gareth Porter is an independent investigative journalist and historian covering US national security policy. He was awarded the Gellhorn Prize for journalism for 2011 by the UK-based Martha Gellhorn Trust. You can read his latest articles discussed during the show here and here.

    One of these Nicky Hager has only last week internationally exposed the GHCQ SIGNIT coded “Sounder” base in Cyprus prompted by the revelations of a former UK diplomat who has been there, that no interceptions or chatter was picked up by Sounder regarding the claims of Kerry et al on the alleged role of the Syrian army in the major September incident. WE now know that Israeli intelligence made these claims to the USA’s intelligence agencies, but their apparatus pales into insignificance with the GHCQ facility in Cyprus and was in fact a false flag and fabrication.

    My other friend who is the expert on CW and worked with the OPCW in the Hague, says that the deal done by Russia an the USA is illegal in terms of its UN mandate and the UNSC resolution is invalid because of this. This is why Norway and Albania will not agree to their being used as dumping ground for the Syrian arsenal of such. Bob Rigg’s analysis of this is expected to be published any moment internationally.
