Obama Claims CIA Involvement in Iran "Patently False"


www.voltairenet.org

President Barack Obama was forced to address accusations that the CIA was involved in fomenting the post-election riots in Iran during his White House press conference yesterday, claiming the allegations were “patently false,” despite the fact that the U.S. government publicly gave the CIA approval to undertake a destabilization campaign in Iran more than two years ago.

“There are reports suggesting that the CIA is behind all this - all of which is patently false but it gives you a sense of the narrative that the Iranian government would love to play into,” said Obama.

Obama caught lying again on behalf of CIA terror tacticts and imperialist meddling. It is common knowledge by now that most notorious terror groups in the region, Jundullah or the MKO, are on the US Governement's payroll. There is no point in denying these facts, except if you play the game of the US war party criminals. A famous report by Seymour Hersh uncovered this scandalous "war of terror" against the democratically elected iranian leadership a couple of years ago.

- The people of Iran are capable of revolution all on their own.
- The CIA absolutely is involved all around the world. It's their job.

Put the two together and it's payback time to the gov't of Iran for interfering with Iraq for all these years AND for being the oppressive regime that it is with the Iranian people.

Using your logic i wonder when it is "payback time" for the US "for interfering with Iraq for all these years AND for being the oppressive regime that it is".

This is another weak attempt by the President to try and buddy up to the Islamic Republic. Why does he think he has to tell the world that the CIA is or isn't involved in covert operations in Iran or the world in general? Now if the CIA is operating in Iran he has just compromise their veil of secrecy as covert operatives. The President shouldn't give any opinion of covert operations at all. This kind of talk is dangerous for our operatives operating in hostile countries.

Yes .. bringing freedom to Iraq is just soooooooooo oppressive!


BTW .. we didn't 'interfere' with Iraq. Here are the facts ..

- Saddam started a war against Kuwait.
- Saddam lost the war against Kuwait.
- Saddam agreed to UN ceasefire resolutions.
- Saddam knew that breaking those resolutions would bring force down upon him.

- Saddam broke UN resolutions - 1441 for example, the no fly zone, kicking out weapons inspectors, shuffling goods from inspection sites, installing radar equipment in the northern and southern fly zones, etc.

Broken UN resolutions meant that force would be used to make him comply. He knew that. He broke them anyways. If you want to blame someone for having Americans in Iraq.... blame Saddam.

You bring up some very strong points for the necessity of combat operations in Iraq in 2003? However, if what you claim is the smoking gun; why did the international community drag their feet when asked to participate? Those points alone justify armed response. So the United States goes into Iraq to enforce the sanctions and the resolutions, yet the world scorn the United States to this day.

Yes it has been an unpopular conflict but it was justified. Yes, WMDs were not recovered from Saddam's weapons facilities. I have been under the assumption they were shipped out of the country. In the past he had no problem moving things around under the weapons inspectors noses. Were they are has been an enigma. However, your points are important as to why the US decided to attack, invade, and occupy Iraq. All semantics aside, the proof is presented before us and UN resolutions were violated.

- because they are left wing countries who are afraid of getting their hands dirty.
- because they just hate the USA .. it's in VOGUE
- because they didn't want to spend the $$$ and figured the USA would do it anyways so why bog down their own economy when they can slough it off onto the Americans.

etc etc etc

Could not be answered any better.
When will the US back-off from helping these countries that always stab the US in the back when they ask for support. Always quick to ask for help but when it is time for them to help they drag their feet and complain. The US really must be slow if they continue to allow themselves to be raked over the coals by these ungrateful countries.

Answer - not soon enough. It gets rather old having our tax money being spent to do the dirty work for the rest of the world. Take japan for instance. We HAD to be there after WWII to disarm and stay around for a while to insure they didn't rise up again. But now the Japanese make US pay for their national defense while they spend all their money on buying us out. :shk:

That's where you are wrong. The CIA and the Mossad are behind it all. They are behind the attacks on their own citizens in their own countries, foreign citizens in foreign countries, and foreign citizens in their own countries! Wherever there is death and chaos, the Mossad/CIA are the real perpetrators, using their hidden filthy connections. They are the ones who support terrorists and then turn on them by supporting more terrorists to cause instability in countries where Muslims happen to live!

Yep, Islamic extremism does not exist and those who claim to be Arab terrorists are really USA or Israeli agents that have infiltrated Islamic Terrorist Organisations in an effort to degrade Arabs and Muslims! if you do not believe me you are an ignorant sheeple who cannot face up to the truth.
/Sarcasm metre off.

This seems like another case where people in one region of the world blame people in another region for all the ills and negatives they face. You see, the people of their country can do no wrong and the people in the other region can do no right. All "victims" can blame their problems on an external enemy because it removes the need for accountability and change.

If you truly believe the CIA was involved and have facts to back this up, please do so. I'm afraid the burden of proof falls on the shoulders of those who state that "the CIA were directly involved in instigating the violent protests in Iran." Does anyone wish to take up the challenge?

The challenge has already been taken in the original post, read it again, and read all the links. There is more than enough evidence of illegal meddling into Iran's internal affairs by the US governement, including the flat out use of purely terrorist methods against innocent civilians.

Here's just an excerpt of what you should have read


It is widely suspected that the well known right-wing terrorist organization known as Mujahedeen-e Khalq, once run by Saddam Hussein’s dreaded intelligence services, is now also working exclusively for the CIA’s Directorate of Operations and carrying out bombings in Iran. A large number of Mujahedeen-e Khalq members were arrested following riots last week, according to a Press TV report. The article claims that the men were “extensively trained in Iraq’s camp Ashraf to create post-election mayhem in the country”.

As part of CIA destabilization efforts in Iran, former Pakistani Army General Mirza Aslam Beig last week claimed that the Agency had distributed 400 million dollars inside Iran to evoke a revolution. Beig cited documents that prove “the CIA spent 400 million dollars inside Iran to prop up a colorful-hollow revolution following the election.”

The CIA program approved by Bush also included funding opposition groups and providing them with communications equipment that would bypass Internet censorship and allow demonstrators to communicate.
