Target Iran


Carlos Latuff is a Brazilian cartoonist.  Cf. “The unnamed member state that informed the agency about Danilenko’s alleged experience as a Soviet nuclear weapons scientist is almost certainly Israel, which has been the source of virtually all the purported intelligence on Iranian work on nuclear weapons over the past decade.  Israel has made no secret of its determination to influence world opinion on the Iranian nuclear programme by disseminating information to governments and news media, including purported Iran government documents.  Israeli foreign ministry and intelligence officials told journalists Douglas Frantz and Catherine Collins about the special unit of Mossad dedicated to that task at the very time the fraudulent documents were being produced.  In an interview in September 2008, Albright said Olli Heinonen, then deputy director for safeguards at the IAEA, had told him that a document from a member state had convinced him that the ‘alleged studies’ documents were genuine.  Albright said the state was ‘probably Israel’.  The Jerusalem Post’s Yaakov Katz reported Wednesday that Israeli intelligence agencies had ‘provided critical information used in the report’, the purpose of which was to ‘push through a new regime of sanctions against Tehran. . .'” (Gareth Porter, “IAEA’s ‘Soviet Nuclear Scientist’ Never Worked on Weapons” Inter Press News, 9 November 2011).
