Editor’s note: Expect more corporate media propaganda on this in the coming days. Don’t epect the corporate media to tell you about the fact the CIA passed nuclear technology on to Iran. James Risen noted this in his book, State of War: The Secret History of the CIA and the Bush Administration, published in 2006.

“The only significant attention the story received was on the January 8th edition of ‘Meet the Press’, where Risen was interviewed by Tim Russert. However, that program airs early on Sunday morning, so the audience is relatively limited. The Guardian, a UK newspaper, reported the story on January 5th of this year by Julian Borger, including an excerpt from Risen’s book. Overall, anyone in the US who did not read ‘State of War’ or missed “Meet the Press” has most likely never heard the story, and for that reason this article will now offer a brief description of the events,” writes Mark W. Hughes.
Iran is poised to begin producing nuclear weapons after its uranium program expansion in 2009, even though it has had problems with thousands of its centrifuges, according to a newly released CIA report.
“Iran continues to develop a range of capabilities that could be applied to producing nuclear weapons, if a decision is made to do so,” the annual report to Congress states.
A U.S. official involved in countering weapons proliferation said the Iranians are “keeping the door open to the possibility of building a nuclear weapon.”
