Gareth Porter joins the show to explain the latest event being sold as evidence for the need to attack Iran. Evidenceless as usual, the claim that Iran is behind the sabotage of Saudi ships is based only on the fact that they had motive to do it. Porter’s theory? This could have really been a false flag attack by Israel, hoping it would provoke an American response against Iran.
Discussed on the show:
- “Pentagon’s phony Iran “evidence”: New rationale for U.S. intervention?” (Salon.com)
- “UAE accuses ‘state actor’ for tanker attacks, but stops just short of Iran” (Fox News)
