Obama lies again about Iran’s nuclear program.

And the lies just keep on coming.  When Iran announced the existence of its second nuclear site, something the U.S. has apparently known about for years, Barack Obama once again followed Bush-Cheney policy by lying about Iran’s nuclear activities.

Obama joined the leaders of Britain and France in accusing the Islamic republic of clandestinely building an underground plant to make nuclear fuel that could be used to build an atomic bomb. Iranian officials acknowledged the facility but insisted it had been reported to nuclear authorities as required.

Obama should try reading intelligence reports, like 2007’s National Intelligence Estimate (the combined consensus report by all sixteen known U.S. intelligence agencies), which stated quite clearly that there is no concrete evidence of a weapons program in Iran.  In July and August of this year, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirmed the lack of evidence although it refuses to state anything definitively.  Yet still Obama, the D.C. political establishment, and the corporate media continue to lie to the contrary.

We’ve already been lied into one failed war, lied into ramping up another failed war, are so hurting for fresh soldiers that the Pentagon is now actively accepting white supremacists, yet still the establishment seeks to lie us into another conflict.

For THIS we elected a Democrat to the presidency?

    …’conflict’. We can’t afford the ones we’re already in. Period.

  1. I’m not sure even very many Iranians would agree with you.

  2. But, I don’t think the US is going to attack Iran–the US is broke.  

    • First of all, the idea that IRAN is some kind of “Military threat” to the United States Empire is laughable on face value, regardless of whether they actually did have a couple of Nuclear warheads.
    • Secondly, the idea that poor little Israel is somehow in peril because of Iran’s “weapons” (which are non-existent to begin with) is also another totally false pretext. Israel has Nuclear Weapons today…right now…and they have far more Military hardware than any other Country in the entire region.
    • Finally, the act that murders people is not the act of mere acquisition of common defense systems, but the act of starting the violence and deceiving the people with lies and covert provocations (CIA) to bring it about.  Recall that Cuba actually had Nuclear Warheads pointed at us just 90 miles off our shoreline in 1962, but President Kennedy nixed the plans and rejected the outcries for Invasion and Warfare and resolved the problem through shared disarmament (we removed our missiles in Turkey).
