Gareth Porter is an award-winning independent journalist and historian.
This is the eighth part in a series of interviews on Porter’s new bookÂ Manufactured Crisis: The Untold Story of the Iran Nuclear Scare. Porter discusses the CIA’s flawed assessment of Iran’s nuclear program; re-using the “fix the facts around the policy” strategy from the Iraq war; the good guys in the CIA like Paul Pillar; why wrongheaded National Intelligence Estimates go unchallenged; and the high-level coverup of a “John Doe” CIA operative’s discovery that Iran was not pursuing nuclear weapons.
