An Afghan source disclosed on Monday that the US has trained, financed and equipped several terrorist cells for a chain of sabotage attacks in Iran, saying that the US is seeking to intimidate civilians and raise public discontent at the Islamic establishment.
"We have precise information that several teams of suicide bombers and terrorists have been readied by the US to infiltrate Iran through its Eastern borders (with Afghanistan) in order to conduct operations in border cities to increase people’s discontent (at the government) and intimidate the public," the source said on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitivity of his information.
He noted that after the recent interview of the US Secretary of State with BBC Persian news channel, in which Hillary Clinton very explicitly voiced support for the Islamic Republic opposition, many terrorist groups have declared readiness to join the US for anti-Iran moves.
Earlier media report unveiled that the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has long been using terrorist proxies, including the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), to carry out bomb attacks and assassinations in Iran.
An article by Paul Joseph Watson published by Prison Planet website last week quoted several credited individuals, including US intelligence whistleblowers and former military personnel, as asserting that the US is conducting covert military operations inside Iran using guerilla groups to carry out attacks on various targets, specially the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) units.
"Tehran’s contention that the United States is carrying out terror attacks inside Iran in an effort to destabilize the Ahmadinejad government in preparation for a military assault was largely ignored by the establishment media, but it’s an admitted fact that the CIA uses terrorist proxies to do precisely that," the article read.
The report further confirmed the remarks by Iran’s Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Secretary Saeed Jalili who said Iran has irrefutable evidence that exposes the official involvement of the United States administration in anti-Iran plots and the dispatch of agents to conduct acts of sabotage and terror in Iran and other regional countries.
It also pointed to the Supreme Leader’s remarks that "we possess one hundred pieces of irrefutable evidence that reveal the US role in directing terrorists for conducting acts of terror in Iran and the region", and noted that because the story was reported by Iranian state media, the western press received it with a collective shrug off the shoulders. The IAEA’s new biased report claiming Iran was on the verge of developing a nuclear weapon was afforded about a thousand times more coverage.
However, the fact that the United States is training and bankrolling terrorist groups to destabilize Iran through violence and other acts of subversion is denied.
Also former CIA veteran Robert Baer explained in the documentary ‘Vanguard: America’s Secret War With Iran’ that the US has been at war with Iran through its terrorist proxies for years, notably PJAK terrorist group, which has been blamed for numerous attacks in Iran.
As the London Telegraph, ABC News and numerous other mainstream outlets reported back in 2007, the US is also using the Al-Qaeda affiliated Sunni terrorist group Jundollah to carry out suicide bombings and other destabilization attacks in Iran, a policy crafted by the Bush administration which has been continued under Obama.
"President George W Bush has given the CIA approval to launch covert ‘black’ operations to achieve regime change in Iran, intelligence sources have revealed. Mr. Bush has signed an official document endorsing CIA plans for a propaganda and disinformation campaign intended to destabilize, and eventually topple, the theocratic rule of the clergies," reported Telegraph.
Part of that destabilization campaign involved the CIA "Giving arms-length support, supplying money and weapons, to an Iranian militant group, Jundollah, which has conducted raids into Iran from bases in Pakistan," stated the report.
Jundollah is an Al-Qaeda offshoot organization that was formerly headed by alleged 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. In October 2009, Jundollah attacked the IRGC at their headquarters in Pishin, near the border with Pakistan, killing 40 people.
The group has been blamed for a number of bombings inside Iran aimed at destabilizing the Iranian government.
In May 2008, ABC News reported on how Pakistan was threatening to turn over six members of Jundollah to Iran after they were taken into custody by Pakistani authorities.
"US officials tell ABC News US intelligence officers frequently meet and advise Jundollah leaders, and current and former intelligence officers are working to prevent the Pakistani government from sending the (six) men to Iran," reported ABC news, highlighting again the close relationship between the terror group and the CIA.
In July 2009, a Jundollah member admitted before a court in Zahedan Iran that the group was a proxy for the US and Israel.
Abdolhamid Rigi, a senior member of the group and the brother of the group’s leader Abdolmalek Rigi, who was one of the six members of the organization extradited by Pakistan, told the court that Jundollah was being trained and financed by "the US and Zionists". He also said that the group had been ordered by America and Israel to step up their attacks in Iran.
Jundollah is not the only anti-Iranian terror group that US government has been funding in an attempt to pressure the Iranian government.
Multiple credible individuals including US intelligence whistleblowers and former military personnel have asserted that the US is conducting covert military operations inside Iran using guerilla groups to carry out attacks on the IRGC.
It is widely suspected that the well-known terrorist organization known as the Mojahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), once run by Saddam Hussein’s dreaded intelligence services, is now working exclusively for the CIA’s Directorate of Operations and carrying out remote bombings in Iran.
After a bombing inside Iran in March 2007, the London Telegraph also reported on how a high ranking CIA official blew the whistle on the fact that America is secretly funding terrorist groups in Iran in an attempt to pile pressure on the Islamic Republic to give up its nuclear program.
A story entitled, US funds terror groups to sow chaos in Iran, reveals how funding for the attacks carried out by the terrorist groups "comes directly from the CIA’s classified budget," a fact that is now "no great secret", according to a former high-ranking CIA official in Washington who spoke anonymously to The Sunday Telegraph.
