Lebanon defiant in face of [Mossad] bombings

[...] Tuesday's explosions on commuter buses on a busy mountain highway northeast of Beirut stoked fears of turmoil as the country prepared to mark the 2005 assassination of Mr. Hariri, the nation's most prominent politician and the leader credited with rebuilding the country from the destruction of the 1975-90 civil war.

Lebanon has suffered a series of bombings during the past two years, mostly targeting anti-Syrian figures, but Tuesday's attacks were the first that seemed intended to cause maximum casualties among civilians of no political affiliation.

Rafik al-Hariri with his wife Nazek
We can only conclude that there must be some kind of agreement between world nations that, even when it is patently obvious, one nation will never expose the activities of anothers' intelligence agency. What other reason can there be for the fact that Iran and Syria were the only two countries to even hint at Israel as being behind the murder of Rafik Hariri on Valentine's day 2005?

Indeed, one of the strongest indications of an Israeli involvement in the murder of Hariri is the fact that not ONE mainstream news source is even mentioning the possibility of Israeli involvement, when it is painfully clear that Israel has the most to gain from his death. But then again, we have become accustomed to the severe lack of intestinal fortitude or any real journalistic integrity on the part of the mainstream media. And also to the fact that much of the Western press is dominated by Israeli sympathisers and/or "Zionists".

To his credit, French President Chirac, perhaps going as far as protocol permitted, held off from immediately implicating any particular group in the murder of his close friend and called for "an immediate international investigation to uncover the real culprits". Coming as it did at the same time as the US government's attempts to force the blame on Syria, Chirac's comment perhaps provides the strongest evidence that Syria was NOT involved. Of course, we don't need the subtle innuendo of any government leader to realise that, while Syria may have stood to gain from the untimely demise of Hariri, it had much more to lose.

Ex- CIA Agent Fired For Proving That Iraq Had No WMDs

A federal judge has ruled that a CIA agent identified only as "Doe," allegedly fired after he gathered prewar intelligence showing that Iraq was not developing weapons of mass destruction, can proceed with his lawsuit against the CIA. The judge has ordered both parties to submit discovery requests - evidence they want for their case - to be completed by March 15, according to the CIA agent's lawyer and a spokesman for the Justice Department, which is defending the CIA in court.

Propaganda Alert! 'Mossad incapable of operating in Iran'

According to a report by Iran's Farsi news agency, the Mossad could not have been behind the death of one of its nuclear scientists three weeks ago, because Israeli operatives cannot penetrate the Iranian security apparatus.

An unnamed Iranian official was quoted as saying "None of the Iranian nuclear scientists have been assassinated by the Mossad because the Israeli intelligence agency is basically incapable of running operations inside of Iran."

The Iranian dismissal of the Mossad's capabilities came in response to a report in the Sunday Times of London that attributed the death of nuclear scientist Ardshir Hosseinpour to a Mossad assassination. The official Iranian position on the death of Hosseinpour, a professor at Shiraz University, is that he was killed by fumes from a faulty gas burner while he slept, and that his death was in no way connected to his role at Iran's uranium conversion facility in Isfahan, where uranium hexafluride is produced from uranium ore.

Comment: According to the Iran's Farsi news agency, reprinted here in the Jerusalem Post, just because an "unnamed Iranian official" declares that Mossad could not be operating inside Iran, then we must believe it to be true.

It is far more likely that the Mossad, with it's global reach and sordid history, has agents operating in most, if not all countries of the world, including Iran.

It has been obvious for some time that the middle east is headed for a nuclear showdown between Iran and Israel. It is possible that this conflict will eventually draw in competing global superpowers resulting in something akin to World War III. This time around, Iran and it's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad are being set up to play the role of Germany and Hitler.

So, not only are there likely lots of Mossad agents working inside Iran, but at some higher level, both governments are working hand in hand.

The Tale Of The Unwitting "Suicide Bomber" And SuperBowl XLI

Today, Iraq, Baghdad, hot off the mainstream media presses, this just in:
More than 120 feared dead in Baghdad bombing

A suicide truck bomber struck a market in a predominantly Shiite area of Baghdad today, killing as many as 121 people among the crowd buying food for evening meals, one of the most devastating attacks in the capital since the war started.

The attacker was driving a truck carrying foodstuffs including oil and flour when he detonated a ton of explosives, destroying stores and stalls that had been set up in the busy outdoor Sadriyah market, police said.

The late-afternoon explosion was the latest in a series of attacks against mainly Shiite commercial targets in the capital. No group claimed responsibility for the attack, but it appeared to be part of a bid by Sunni insurgents to provoke retaliatory violence and kill as many people as possible ahead of a planned US-Iraqi security sweep.

Egyptian student was 'a Mossad agent'

Egypt's security echelon has been keeping track of a university student arrested under charges of passing information to Mossad agents, since 2002, the London-based newspaper Al-Hayat reported Sunday.

Mohammed al-Attar, the report said, left Egypt in 2001 to live in Turkey. He admitted to leaving because he was unable to integrate into the Egyptian society by his third year as a student at Al-Azhar University. He chose Turkey both because of the relative lenience found in receiving a tourist's visa and its proximity to Europe.
