On March 15, 2013, US President Barack Obama told Israeli TV that Iran was “a year away from building a nuclear weapon”—a blatant and outrageous lie which the U.S. Intelligence Services have officially confirmed as such.
In the interview, Obama said that Iran is “over a year or so” away from being able to develop a nuclear weapon and that the U.S. will use “all options” to stop it.
“Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually develop a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” Obama told Israeli Channel 2 TV (see below).
“When I say that all options are on the table, it means that all options are on the table. [The] US has extensive capabilities.”
But, in testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Tuesday March 12, 2013—three days BEFORE the Obama TV interview in Israel, the US Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said that Iran has no nuclear weapons program, is not building a nuclear weapon and has not even made a decision to do so.
The annual “Worldwide Threat Assessment,” which compiles the collective conclusions of all American intelligence agencies, has long held that Iran maintains defensive capabilities and has a military doctrine of deterrence and retaliation, but is not an aggressive state actor and has no intention of beginning a conflict, let alone triggering a nuclear apocalypse.
While the U.S. intelligence community assumes that Iran already has the technical capability to produce nuclear weapons, “should a decision be made to do so,” Clapper’s report states (as it has for years now), “We do not know if Iran will eventually decide to build nuclear weapons.”
Were this decision ever to be made, Iran wouldn’t even be able to secretly start building a nuclear bomb. “[W]e assess Iran could not divert safeguarded material and produce a weapon-worth of WGU [weapons-grade uranium] before this activity is discovered,” Clapper told Congress.
Why then, does Obama and others in the US establishment insist on lying about Iran’s nuclear ambitions?
The answer is simple: the Jewish lobby in America, AIAPC, which controls US foreign policy, is steadily pushing for an attack upon Iran, and, just like the war with Iraq, is more than happy to lie to the world to justify it.
With professional liar puppets like Obama in place, it seems as if this evil plan might yet come to fruition.
