CIA And Mossad Trained Iranian Terrorists

Protests in Iran likely pushed by CIA, Mossad

Recent protests in Iran have been very likely instigated by the CIA and Israeli Mossad. We only have to remember back to the last Bush administration and the statement “Real men go to Tehran”. The U.S., Britain and Israel have been entangled with Iran for decades, most notably the overthrow of the legitimate government in 1953 (Operation Ajax).

To understand what may be going on right now, we need to understand how the CIA and Mossad trained the anti-Iranian terrorist group “MEK” Here’s a few excerpts from an interview with Seymour Hersh:

Seymour Hersh: US Training Iranian Terrorists in Nevada

(Excerpts)

“In what appears to be a first for U.S. foreign policy, new revelations have emerged that the Bush administration secretly trained an Iranian opposition group despite its inclusion on the State Department’s list of foreign terrorists. Writing for The New Yorker magazine, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh reports U.S. Joint Special Operations Command trained operatives from Mujahideen-e-Khalq, or MEK, at a secret site in Nevada beginning in 2005. According to Hersh, MEK members were trained in intercepting communications, cryptography, weaponry and small unit tactics at the Nevada site up until President Obama took office. The MEK has been included on the State Department’s list of foreign terrorist groups since 1997. It’s been linked to a number of attacks, spanning from the murders of six U.S. citizens in the ’70s to the recent wave of assassinations targeting Iranian nuclear scientists.”

“Simply, they’re just the Khalq, the MEK. We began to—I learned about this many years ago. It’s just one of those things that it never quite occurred to me how important it was. And what is important about also the—they did stop, there’s no question, this sort of training that was going on. It was going on at a place called the Nevada Nuclear Security or National Security Test Site. It’s a former site for World War—post-World War II nuclear testing of weapons, testing of nuclear weapons. And it’s off-limits to people. And it’s—there’s an air base there. God knows what went on there. My own guess is rendition flights also flew into that air base in ’02, ’03. There’s some evidence for it. But certainly, the groups of MEK were flown in secretly by, I presume, the Joint Special Operations Command. This is this new high-powered group that’s been doing all the night raids in Afghanistan, that also came up in your news broadcast.

What’s important to me about it is not only that it did end, this kind of direct training of this group that is, as you said, a terrorist group; it’s also very clear that the United States is still involved, as is Israel and as was, for many years, England, in using the MEK and other dissident groups inside Iran as surrogates for the continued pressure we’re putting covertly on inside of Iran. And that is, as you said, there are assassinations done by the MEK. And let me make it clear, the MEK has been in a virtual war with the mullahs in Iran since the fall of the Shah, and you don’t have to—you don’t have to urge them to kill anybody. They’re very eager to do it themselves inside that country. But still, nonetheless, we provide intelligence. We, the Americans, have continued to provide intelligence and other kinds of material support for the MEK. Don’t forget, they speak Farsi, which is a great asset to us. These are people who are able to translate intercepted communications inside Iran for us very quickly and very—with great skill. And so, we have a lot of reason to rely on them, as we rely on other dissident groups inside Iran—the Kurds, the Azeris and others—to cause—basically, to try and keep some sort of internal chaos and mayhem going inside the country.”

“Haaretz” published another 2012 piece that describes the Mossad training the MEK to kill Iranian scientists:

Israel’s Mossad Trained Assassins of Iran Nuclear Scientists, Report Says

https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/israel-s-mossad-trained-assassins-of-iran-nuclear-scientists-report-says-1.411945

(Excerpt)

“Mossad officials are training Iranian dissident activists to assassinate Iranian nuclear scientists, a NBC News report citing U.S. officials said on Thursday. The report noted, however, that Washington was not directly involvement in the alleged attacks.

The report by NBC News followed Iranian accusations that Israel and the U.S. had been orchestrating attacks against Iranian scientists and military officials associated with Iran’s nuclear program.”

“Foreign Policy’s Mark Perry reported that the Mossad operation was carried out in 2007-2008, behind the back of the U.S. government, and infuriated then U.S. President George W. Bush.

Later, a Sunday Times report claimed that agents associated with Israel’s secret services were behind Ahmadi Roshans’ assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist.

On Thursday, U.S. officials speaking to NBC news claimed that Mossad agents were training members of the dissident terror group People’s Mujahedin of Iran in order assassinate Iranian nuclear scientists, adding that the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama was aware of the operation, but had no direct link to them.

The U.S. officials reportedly confirmed the link between Israel and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (MEK), with one official saying: “All your inclinations are correct.”

Yet another American official would only tell NBC “It hasn’t been clearly confirmed yet.” All officials in question denied any U.S. involvement.”

Iran – Early U.S. Support For Rioters Hints At A Larger Plan

http://www.moonofalabama.org/2017/12/iran-early-us-support-for-rioters-hints-at-a-larger-plan.html

(Excerpt)

“In June 2009 Brookings Institute published a manual on how to overthrow the Iranian government or to take control of the country. “Iran junkie” Maloney was one of the authors. WHICH PATH TO PERSIA? – Options for a New American Strategy toward Iran (pdf) came in four parts:
•Part I – Dissuading Tehran: The Diplomatic options.
•Part II – Disarming Tehran: The Military options
•Part III – Toppling Tehran: Regime Change
•Part IV – Deterring Tehran: Containment

Part III includes:
•Chapter 6: The Velvet revolution: supporting a Popular Uprising
•Chapter 7: Inspiring an insurgency: supporting Iranian Minority and opposition Groups
•Chapter 8: The coup: supporting a Military Move against the regime

The velvet “color revolution” failed in 2009 when the “green movement” could not convince the Iranian people that it was more than a foreign supported attempt to overthrow their republic.

What we currently see in Iran is a combination of chapter 6 and 7 of the Brookings plan. Behind a somewhat popular movement that protests against the neo-liberal economic policies of the Rohani government a militant movement, as seen last night (below), is implementing an escalation strategy that could lead to a civil war.”

The Iranian protests are certainly not a completely organic movement, the backlash against wages and working conditions has been hijacked to foment a civil war.

One Response to CIA And Mossad Trained Iranian Terrorists

  1. Fayez Abedaziz on January 13, 2018 at 5:45 am

    Of course they do and did.
    No regard for human feelings, suffering and people’s lives.
    Look at the genocidal effect they brought to Syria.
    They did and still support the so-called rebels there.
    Seriously consider reading:
    The Secret History Of The CIA- by- Joseph Trento
    and,
    a book or three by the brilliant Professor Noam Chomsky about REAL
    American foreign policy.
    then,
    one or both books by Victor Ostrovsky.
    Victor was a Mossad guy years ago.
    From Vietnam to Central/South America, to the Middle East, Afghanistan and more, killings, torture and…oh, well now…
    American values…
    and where are the American people I used to know, like in the 60’s and 70’s that at least had an interest and knew where a nation or ongoing conflict was and…
    never mind
