Media Disinformation: Iran's Link To Iraqi Insurgents


www.globalresearch.ca

Michael Gordon, the military writer for The New York Times who contributed several false stories about Iraqi WMD in the runup to the U.S. attack on Iraq in 2002, has written several articles in the past year about Iran’s alleged training of Iraqi insurgents -- or supplying them with weapons to kill Americans. He produced another major report on this subject for today’s Times – based solely on unnamed sources -- which is at odds with an account from McClatchy’s Baghdad bureau.

Although this article is focusing on limited outlets of disinfo campaigns, make no mistake about it, we are being hoodwinked and "sold" this next catastrophe every bit as crookedly as the last one, by a whole host of avenues. The same Elitist cabals responsible for the Iraq debacle are hell bent on starting their next giant profiteering venue, and they are spewing out the propaganda and brainwashing, just like last time--in overtime. And their ever-complicit and corrupted mouthpiece, the main stream media is taking us all along for the ride, just like before...

With all the recent media, Pentagon, and Whitehouse disinfo expose's being unraveled as of late, I hope that people won't fall into this brainwashing extaveganza, but I can already see signs of that happening, right on this very site. Wake up people, before thousands more of our men are dying again to further line these greed and power mongers already overflowing pockets...


Also today from Agence France-Press: “Iraq said on Sunday it has no evidence that Iran was supplying militias engaged in fierce street fighting with security forces in Baghdad.

“Government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said there was no 'hard evidence' of involvement by the neighbouring Shiite government of Iran in backing Shiite militiamen in the embattled country. Asked about reports that weapons captured from Shiite fighters bore 2008 markings suggesting Iranian involvement, Dabbagh said: ‘We don't have that kind of evidence... If there is hard evidence we will defend the country.’"

Here is a list of Gordon’s sources in his Times article:

-- “An American official”

-- “But the Americans say”

-- “American officials”

-- “American officials”

-- “The Americans “

--“American officials”

--“An American official”

-- ditto, and so on

Just add the name "Michael Gordon" to the long list of government tools.

I'm sure eventually there will be some citizenship award or other for his 'heroic' reporting. Unless they just pony up a fake Pulitzer for him, it's not like they mean anything anymore.

I think there are drums pounding for action against Iran, but anything that happens will probably be exclusively an air attack, either by bombers or by ship borne cruise missles. Outside of a small force, the US can't afford to put more troops somewhere other than where they are now - The numbers just don't add up. The US doesn't apparently have a enough army troops to cover Afghanistan now, let alone start something new in Iran.
