Iranian "Badge" Story is Propaganda

The neocons continue their shameless campaign to drive us into war with Iran using easily falsifyable propaganda.

I hope the american people are smart enough to see through this.

There have been several diaries on the story that was published in the right-wing Canadian newspaper, The National Post, today ... which relied on Iranian exiles as sources. But significant is a companion piece by one, Amir Taheri ... What makes it significant is who Taheri is, who his associates are, and who sponsors him.

Google the name Amir Taheri and you will find that his writings are published by National Review, the New York Post, the Jerusalem Post and the Weekly Standard. But more significant is that he has sponsored by Benador Associates an erstwhile public relations firm whose founder, Eleana Benador has major right-wing connections[.]

Lots more information here.

Eleana Benador is Jewish and Benador Associates was a p-r outfit promoting Israel and Jewish interests. Another famous speaker in their stable was Judith Miller, although her name disappeared from their lists as criticism of Judy's "reporting" grew.

The National Post is owned by CanWest, which in turn is owned by fellow Jew, Israel Asper. Asper wouldn't print the story if it wasn't true.

I do hear tell that Iran is planning on building an autobahn also...
