Historian: Israel gave fake Iran dossier to MKO
In an interview with Press TV, Gareth Porter said he has evidence of MKO’s submission of documents to the German intelligence in 2004, claiming that Iran has been seeking to develop nuclear weapons.
“And the MKO undoubtedly got them from Israel – A document that connects the MKO and Israel that the MKO had been laundering intelligence for the Israelis for years,” he said.
Porter, author of Manufactured Crisis: The Untold Story of Iran Nuclear Scare, said there is “absolutely convincing evidence” that the MKO documents were “fabricated.”
He said Israel and the United States started in 1983 fabricating documents against the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program by raising claims that Iran is running a “covert nuclear weapons program.”
The investigative journalist said under former US President W. George Bush (2001-2009), the Israeli regime moved to “essentially create a set of documents that would indict Iran as pursuing nuclear weapons.”
However, he said, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) made it clear that it had “not established the authenticity of those documents.”
“[The IAEA then director Mohamed ElBaradei] insisted they should not be used as evidence in regard to Iran’s nuclear program,” said Porter.
In his book, Porter wrote that the international hype created over Iran’s nuclear energy program has been in fact a scenario orchestrated by the Israeli spy agency Mossad and the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).
