U.S. intelligence has concluded that the document published recently by the Times of London, which purportedly describes an Iranian plan to do experiments on what the newspaper described as a "neutron initiator" for an atomic weapon, is a fabrication, according to a former Central Intelligence Agency official.

Philip Giraldi, who was a CIA counterterrorism official from 1976 to 1992, told IPS that intelligence sources say that the United States had nothing to do with forging the document, and that Israel is the primary suspect. The sources do not rule out a British role in the fabrication, however.

The Times of London story published Dec. 14 did not identify the source of the document. But it quoted "an Asian intelligence source" - a term some news media have used for Israeli intelligence officials - as confirming that his government believes Iran was working on a neutron initiator as recently as 2007.

damn it! there will never be any consequence for their BS. It's simply amazing. Another government doing so much wrong in the world in the name of GOD and it is rewarded. Truly sad. I guess the Bush intelligence fakery proved taught the world that "it's ok" if the intelligence ain't sound. As long as you get people emotional and ready for battle, it's the ends, not the means that matter.


one can not expect any thing less from these low life criminals
