Curveball Redux: IAEA Lies to Push Case for Attacking Iran

December 21, 2011
Kurt Nimmo,

It looks like the war pigs are about to pull another Iraq. In the orchestrated lead-up to the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a cabal of neocons and fellow travelers in the Pentagon contrived a number of lies – later explained away as “intelligence failures” – in order to fabricate a consensus for mass murder.

The Bush neocons exploited the fantasies offered by Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi, aka “Curveball,” a taxi driver who claimed to be an Iraqi chemical engineer with information on Saddam’s supposed chemical weapons program. It turned out al-Janabi was a drunken congenital liar who was trying to play the system to get a green card. Following the invasion and revelations that Curveball was a fake, the Bush administration blamed the CIA.

Fast-forward to 2011. Iran is in the crosshairs – part of the ambitious plan to take out seven countries in five years (the war pigs are behind schedule) – and the transparently obvious fabrications for war are being hastily refried at the highest levels of government.

“Iraq had Ahmed Chalabi, Iyad Allawi and the informant Curveball selling fairy stories,” writes Felicity Arbuthnot. “Iran has Vyacheslav Danilenko, an expert in nanodiamonds, apparently doubling as a nuclear weapons expert, along with a plethora of unidentified spokespeople for ‘member states.’ Hardly rigid verifiable scholarship.”

And now… the rest of the story. …..
