Antiwar Radio: Gareth Porter

Gareth Porter, independent historian and journalist for IPS News, discusses his article “US Officials Peddle False Intel to Support Terror Plot Claims;” piling on the propaganda to pass more punitive sanctions and further isolate Iran (but not start a war apparently); why the government would surely have recorded damning conversations between Manssor Arbabsiar and the DEA informant – if the plot was even remotely real; why the FBI’s real target was Iranian Quds force deputy commander Abdul Reza Shahlai, not the stooge Arbabsiar; and why the $100,000 balance transfer, supposedly for the Saudi Ambassador’s assassination, was for likely intended for something else.
