On Cue, Iran Nuclear Threat Suddenly Accelerates

by Steve

If the White House wanted to justify an attack upon Iran at the next New Moon on April 17th, it would need to immediately stoke fears of Iran entering into the nuclear club years ahead of what experts are predicting. To do this, you would need to find a friendly media outlet to trumpet such a breathless claim, naturally without any on-the-record sources.

Oh, look over here.

Do you see one named source for this piece, or for the claim that Iran is processing uranium not used in the Russian reactor they plan to use? Neither do I. I wonder who the Iranian "Curveball" is that ABC News is swallowing hook, line, and sinker? This from the same network that gave us that right wing propaganda movie masquerading as something based on the 9/11 Commission report.
