Corporate Media Providing False View Of Iranian Post Election Protests

By - Lee Rogers

The corporate controlled media are deliberately providing a false view of reality in their coverage on the post election protests in Iran.  For starters, the media entirely downplays the historical fact that the U.S. through covert CIA operations in the 1950s staged false flag terror attacks to overthrow the democratically elected government of Iran.  They have also ignored their own news reports detailing how the U.S. since 2005 have been running covert operations in Iran as part of an effort to destabilize the nation’s political and economic system. With all this in mind, it is almost certain that much of what we are seeing in Iran is the result of covert activity on the part of the U.S. and other western governments. In fact, considering that Barack Obama came out and said that there is no CIA activity involved with the post election protests, this alone gives credibility to the fact that there is. After all, when’s the last time the U.S. government told the truth about anything?

Below are news reports from the corporate controlled media detailing U.S. funding and encouraging of covert operations within Iran.

From the Washington Post:
The Bush administration told Congress last year of a secret plan to dramatically expand covert operations inside Iran as part of a long-running effort to destabilize the country's ruling regime, according to a report published yesterday.

The plan allowed up to $400 million in covert spending for activities ranging from spying on Iran's nuclear program to supporting rebel groups opposed to the country's ruling clerics, veteran investigative journalist Seymour Hersh reported in the New Yorker magazine.

From ABC News:
The CIA has received secret presidential approval to mount a covert "black" operation to destabilize the Iranian government, current and former officials in the intelligence community tell the Blotter on

The sources, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the subject, say President Bush has signed a "nonlethal presidential finding" that puts into motion a CIA plan that reportedly includes a coordinated campaign of propaganda, disinformation and manipulation of Iran's currency and international financial transactions.

From ABC News:
A Pakistani tribal militant group responsible for a series of deadly guerrilla raids inside Iran has been secretly encouraged and advised by American officials since 2005, U.S. and Pakistani intelligence sources tell ABC News.

The group, called Jundullah, is made up of members of the Baluchi tribe and operates out of the Baluchistan province in Pakistan, just across the border from Iran.

With the post election chaos in Iran, it is interesting to see how the corporate media’s own reports of U.S. funded covert activity in Iran have been completely forgotten. Over the past couple of weeks, western media outlets have consistently delivered incredibly biased reports, failing to provide people with the proper historical context of U.S.-Iranian relations.  Operation Ajax which was the CIA funding of false flag terror attacks in the 1950s to overthrow the democratically elected government of Iran has been ignored or downplayed by all the talking heads. The focus has been entirely on how evil the Iranian government is and how their electoral process is a fraud while providing little evidence conclusively proving either. It is funny to see how quick the media is to condemn the Iranian elections but refuse to condemn the widespread vote fraud that occurred in the 2000 and 2004 U.S. elections. The U.S. media has been virtually silent on the issues with electronic voting machines that are widely used in U.S. presidential elections. This is despite the fact that computer scientists and other experts have criticized these machines as having numerous security problems.

We are also being propagandized with the image of Neda a young Iranian woman who was shot to death during one of the protests. Sure, any death is a tragedy but let’s put this in the appropriate context. So far it appears as if there have been very few protesters who have actually died as a result of Iranian government action. Instead of reporting this, the western media has decided to personalize the story of one death and give the viewer a distorted view of what’s really going on. In addition, when one considers the U.S. covert activity within Iran one has to ask the question if Neda was killed by a U.S. operative so they could have a story to propagandize the world on how evil the Iranian government is. The entire story smells of a massive psychological warfare operation that has been amplified by the western media. In fact, we should question if the actual death itself is even real.  For all we know, it could be entirely made up.

Apparently one young woman dying in a protest is of more concern to the western media than Israeli and U.S. forces killing an untold number of innocent people all over the Middle East for most of the past decade. Joseph Stalin was right when he said this.
“One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic.”

Undoubtedly the western media is propagandizing the people in the west to hate the Iranian government to justify future covert and possibly military operations in Iran. This is despite the fact that there really is no reason for the U.S. or other western nations to be involved in the internal affairs of Iran. Iran doesn’t even have a nuclear weapon, and even if they did, the Israelis have hundreds of nuclear weapons and an incredibly advanced military. Iran isn't a threat with or without a nuclear weapon which makes the entire argument of the neo-cons and other lunatics who want regime change in Iran all the more ridiculous and insane.

Regardless of all this, it seems clear that the post election protests and civil strife in Iran has been encouraged by covert activity from western intelligence agencies and media outlets. This is obviously part of an agenda to destabilize Iran's government so it can finally be merged into the New World Order.
