America's entanglement with Israel

“Iran Terror Plot” — Iraqi WMD Déjà Vu?

leave a comment »

In a Middle East Online opinion piece entitled “Ten Reasons To Question US Allegations of Iranian Terror Plot,” Iranian author Kaveh L. Afrasiabi writes:

The US prosecutors are of course forgiven for not contemplating the scenario of a lone wolf or “false flag” operation, whereby some foreign governments enlist amateur recruits pretending to represent the target government.

Why should they be forgiven for not contemplating the obvious? Even though Afrasiabi observes that this affair raises “the distinct possibility of a historical deja vu, i.e., the repetition of the pre-Iraq war ferocious campaign of vilification and manufacturing WMD lies with much media complicity,” he seems unaware that the foreign government behind that campaign — and the world’s leading exponents of the “false flag” operation — are beating the drums most fervently for war with Iran.
