Gareth Porter: Mossad, ,neocons used Mojahedin Khalq (MKO, MEK, NCRI, Rajavi cult) to fabricate documents
The Israeli spy agencies in conjunction with US neoconservatives have created a “false narrative” and “fabricated documents” about Iran’s peaceful nuclear energy program in order to make the case for war against Iran, an American investigative journalist says.
The incorrect reports published about the nature of Iran’s nuclear energy program are in fact part of a scenario orchestrated by the Israeli spy agency Mossad and the neoconservatives in the Bush administration especially John Bolton, then under Secretary of State for arms control and international security, says Gareth Porter, a policy analyst specializing in US national security policy.
In his new book “Manufactured Crisis: The Untold Story of Iran Nuclear Scare,” which is a comprehensive study of hundreds of US intelligence reports, transcriptions of US Congressmen’s speeches and documents of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Porter concludes that neoconservatives worked with Israel’s Mossad in creating “a false intelligence dossier to make the case for war against Iran.”
“That was the original intention of the neoconservatives in the Bush administration; they were hoping to essentially carry out regime change across the Middle East with regime change in Iran being the crowning achievement of their strategy and the centerpiece of that strategy, they planned to accuse Iran of having a covert nuclear weapons program,” Porter told Press TV on Saturday.
“That’s where Mossad came into the picture in 2003 and 2004,” he noted. “They created a set of documents supposedly purloining from a scientist who was part of this alleged nuclear weapons program.”
Porter added that he has presented “overwhelming evidence” in his new book showing that those documents were “fabricated” by Mossad and handed to the US intelligence community by the terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO).
CIA chiefs never questioned the faked documents, according to Porter.
The United States, Israel, and some of their allies have repeatedly accused Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives in its nuclear energy program.
Iran rejects the allegations, arguing that as a committed signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and a member of the IAEA, it has the right to use nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

Gareth Porter, Aljazeera, Mau18 2014: … senior officials of Germany’s intelligence agency, the BND, had told him in November 2004 that those documents had been provided by a sometime BND source who was a member of the Mujahedin-e-Khalq (MEK), the Iranian exile group allied first with Saddam and later with Israel that was listed as terrorist organisation …
The Real News, March 20 2014:… And from everything that I know, everything that I’ve seen, Porter Goss and his top lieutenants knew perfectly well these documents came from the MEK. They had every reason to distrust them. But they didn’t tell Colin Powell, certainly, and they didn’t tell other people in the administration that that was the case. They were playing a game …
Iran Review interviews Gareth Porter, March 18 2014: … there are several indicators that it was an Israeli job. One is that we know the Mujahedin-e-Khalq turned these documents over to German intelligence; that’s where they came from. A former German intelligence official gave me a detailed account of that in an interview I did with him last year for my book. So, that’s the first …
