Things seem a little slow so I thought maybe some of you might be interested in this story.
It seems that the Iranians are suffering from delusions ... apparently they think the U.S. is out to get them. How deluded can you be?! The U.S. wouldn't act like that! Excerpts are as follows:
The U.S. intelligence community is worried that mysterious assassinations and bombings aimed at Iran’s nuclear program may be spurring the Iranian leadership to pursue attacks inside the United States, according to current and former U.S. officials. ...
“The Iranians feel—and they have said this already—that they are under attack via economic pressure and things blowing up in their country,” says Juan Zarate, a former deputy national security for counterterrorism who served under President Bush. “The Iranians seem to be responding by trying to attack the United States and its allies abroad.” ...
... There have also been a string of industrial explosions at facilities associated with Iran’s weapons programs, such as a Nov. 12 blast at a missile-testing facility outside of Tehran that killed Maj. Gen. Hassan Moqqadam, the head of the country’s missile program.
“There’s been great deal of speculation about events in Iran surrounding its nuclear program,” says a U.S. official who would only speak on background. “Iranian paranoia about these events could lead them to lash out. I’m not saying it will happen, but it’s an option people have to consider.”
Is this the sort of news "Manufacturing Consent" ?
