Many of Iran's claims related to missile tests during "Great Prophet III" war games -- appear to be smoke and mirrors!
The missiles tested DID NOT not have 2,000-kilometer range, the NEW YORK TIMES is planning to report on Saturday.
Iran DID NOT launch a Shahab-3 missile, able to reach Israel.
It was an older missile that was out of production, newsroom sources tell DRUDGE.
And a video showing what appeared to be many missiles being fired -- is actually one missile, filmed from different angles!
NYT's Bill Broad is planning to quote military insiders.

Sorry i had to post and run earlier...
The funniest part of this story to me is that i have gone through and read the threads about the recent photoshopped images of the missile launch. Now we find that this whole thing might have possibly been a staging, and that the technology claimed doesn't exist.
So what i feel we must ask ourselves is this: what is the reason?
Why stage a fake missile launch, claiming nine when there was only one launch occuring (showed from multiple angles) of three missiles being launched? Some random thoughts i have:
Is the Iranian defense capability anywhere near what is claimed (officially and unofficially)?
Are they trying to further destabilize the oil market?
