Media Helps Spin Every Attack into Anti-Iran Propaganda
Story of "Drone Attack" Plays Out Like a Game of "Telephone" Ending in "Iran Did It"

Infowars | July 16, 2006

Initially the line was that an Israeli warship had been attacked by Hezbollah using an unmanned drone aircraft laden with explosives. Presumably the follow-up would have been expected to be "Hey, wait a minute, where did these guerrillas get such high-tech weapons?" which of course would be followed up on FOXNews and other government propaganda outlets with a resounding chorus of, "Iran, of course!"

That story never seemed to materialize, try as they might to use the situation to stir up anti-Hezbollah and anti-Iranian sentiment. At one point over the course of the weekend FOXNews did allege that the warship was in fact not a missle-carrying battleship but a "civilian ship" that had been attacked. Drones being as common as they are these days (with them flying all over California along the US-Mexico border for our "safety") people bought the drone story without considering any of the planned Iran subtext.

So the US-Israeli spin machine called on the media to step it up a notch, transforming the drone into a super high-tech radar-guided missile, a C-802, which obviously was not only made in Iran but could only be launched with the careful assistance of an elite band within the Iranian military.

"We can confirm that (the warship) was hit by an Iranian-made missile launched by Hezbollah. We see this as very profound fingerprint of Iranian involvement in Hezbollah," said Israeli Brigadier General Ido Nehushtan.

Do you hate Iran yet? Do you believe they are behind this yet? No? Well hold on tight and keep your eyes glued to your TV screens because war-fever has taken hold of the media and Washington and it's not going to break until Iran is put in the hotseat.


Israel Says Warship Attacked by Drone

JERUSALEM -- An unmanned Hezbollah aircraft rigged with explosives rammed into an Israeli warship late Friday, leaving four sailors missing and causing heavy damage and a fire, Israeli military officials said.

The army said a search was under way for the seamen. The statement confirmed earlier news reports that the four were missing.

The attack by the remote-controlled drone indicated that Hezbollah has added a new weapon to the arsenal of rockets and mortars it has used against Israeli troops.

The army said a missile ship carrying several dozen sailors suffered severe damage and was set on fire. Several hours after the attack, the fire was put out and the ship was being towed back to Israel, officials said. The military officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak to the media.

In an official statement, the army spokesman's office would say only that the cause of the attack was still under investigation.

Hezbollah has never before used a remote-controlled unmanned aircraft to attack Israel. But in a signal of its growing capabilities, the guerrilla group has twice managed to fly spy drones over northern Israel in recent years. The drones caused great concern in Israel because they evaded the country's air defenses.

Hezbollah's Al-Manar TV had reported earlier Friday that guerrillas attacked an Israeli warship that had been firing missiles into south Beirut.

"Now in the middle of the sea, facing Beirut, the Israeli warship that has attacked the infrastructure, people's homes and civilians -- look at it burning," Hezbollah's leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said.

The prerecorded audiotape was aired shortly after Israeli missiles struck Hezbollah headquarters and Nasrallah's house in south Beirut.

The station showed a video purportedly showing an Israeli warship hit by Hezbollah. The video aired a few seconds of nighttime pictures of an object flying over a city and falling in the distance, where it exploded. Al-Manar said this depicted the attack on the Israeli warship off the coast of Lebanon.

The footage was unclear and it could not be seen what the object hit.

Damaged Israeli warship deployed off Lebanese coast was hit by missile which was made in Iran, said an high ranking Israel Defense Forces officer.

The missile, type C-802, is radar guided, with an range of 60 miles, the officer told Xinhua.

Previously, the army confirmed that one soldier on board the attacked vessel was killed while his body was found in the water, but the other three soldiers were still missing.

The military are attempting to locate the rest three missing sailors and has informed their respective families of the events.

Four sailors from an Israeli warship got missing Friday night, after the vessel was hit by a projectile launched by Lebanese Hizbollah, according to the Israeli military.

The military confirmed on Friday night that one of its navy ship deployed off Lebanon coast was hit by a rocket, and the attack caused damage to the vessel.

Lebanese ANB television also reported that Hizbollah pounded an Israeli gunboat with rocket Friday night, adding that the vessel was sinking.


Militants' missile hits ship with Iranian troops' help

Associated Press | July 17, 2006

JERUSALEM: Elite Iranian troops helped Hezbollah fire a radar-guided missile at an Israeli warship, Israeli officials said yesterday, raising the stakes in fierce fighting in which Lebanese guerillas until now used only low-tech weapons.

Initially, it was believed an unmanned drone laden with explosives had hit the ship, but it later became clear Hezbollah had used an Iranian-made, radar-guided C-802 missile to find its target, an Israeli intelligence official said.

One sailor was killed and three were missing after the Hezbollah attack.

Israel says the troops involved in firing the missile were from the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, an elite corps of more than 200,000 fighters that is independent of the regular armed forces and controlled by Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

"We can confirm that (the warship) was hit by an Iranian-made missile launched by Hezbollah. We see this as very profound fingerprint of Iranian involvement in Hezbollah," said Israeli Brigadier General Ido Nehushtan.

Until now, Hezbollah has fired only highly inaccurate Katyusha rockets at Israeli towns and cities. It appeared Israel was surprised the guerilla group had more hi-tech missiles at its disposal.

A military official said the group was also believed to have longer-range projectiles that could hit the Israeli commercial hub of Tel Aviv.
