Interview with Fara Mansoor, Part 2: Iran may have nuclear capability since 1974…

This is part 2 of an interview that Fara Mansoor, a member of the Iranian Resistance, gave to radio host Dave Emory in January and March 1993, on three separate shows. In part 1, we saw that the 1979 hostage crisis in Iran was in fact a coup d’état in which the Republican branch of the CIA replaced the cancer ill Shah of Iran with Ayatollah Khomenei. The general idea of this coup was to replace the Shah with somebody fiercely anti-communist and, at the same time, to destabilize Jimmy Carter relatively enough to make him lose the next Presidential Election. In this second part of the interview, we now learn that Iran may have nuclear capability since 1974. This story is rather complex and involves a lot of names, dates and characters. So, instead of trying to present the integrality of it, I will rather illustrate the spearhead from which you will be able to continue the research. Note here that we have to remember that Iran, as a country, was a key component in a strategy to create and consolidate a military and ideological bulwark against communism.

According to Fara Mansoor’s investigation, the CIA provided nuclear capability to Iran during the time of the transition from Richard Nixon to Gerald Ford, in 1974. It was accomplished through an Iranian-born and American citizen nuclear scientist, sent by the CIA, named Dr Mojtba Taherzadh. At this time, Taherzadh was working for Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. When he arrived in mid-1974 from the U.S., Taherzadh was placed at the head of the Nuclear Research Center in Iran. Then, he began researching and installing nuclear technology capable of producing nuclear weapons. In July 6th 1976, Dr Taherzadh signed a deal with Gifted Ink, one of Albert Hakim‘s companies, in order to acquire laser equipment to enrich weapon’s grade uranium. The sell export of this technology, fabricated by the Lischem corporation, was illegal at the time, so Hakim’s partner in Gifted Ink, Naim Perry, arranged with a CIA contact to smuggle it out of the country through U.S. Customs. Nevertheless, Bush Administration warnings at the time were saying that Iran might have obtained nuclear technology through China, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and North Korea. Also, we have to remember that during these years, Iran signed contracts with France and the U.S. to obtain nuclear reactors. During this several hour interview, Fara Mansoor continues to present all the details and connections that need to be stressed out in relation with this event.

Interview with Fara Mansoor, Part I. The hostage crisis in Iran: A coup d’état against both the Shah and Carter

This fascinating and incredibly massive several hour interview features Fara Mansoor, a member of the Iranian Resistance. It was recorded in January and March 1993 on Dave Emory’s radio show, For The Record, during three separate shows. At the time, Dave Emory had a 4-hour airtime format at his disposal. That’s why he could allow his guest to utilize so much space to talk, present and explain all the different connections, details, etc, about this case, and Fara Mansoor certainly didn’t miss such an opportunity. The wealth and scope of detail in Mansoor’s research is absolutely fantastic, impressive and beyond description. In these times of mass media tyranny, where everything is downsized to its simplest expression and where the Twitter format of 140 characters has relegated the classic tools of expression such as the book, the academic journal, the Ph. D. thesis, the university or scientific research to the antics of history, this interview tastes like an oasis of science, research and intelligence.

In these eight segments, representing the first two shows, that I have attached here for you and that you will find regrouped in the second link titled « The Terror Connection », Fara Mansoor explains something that is never presented anywhere else in the media. In a nutshell, these are the basic elements that you will discover:

The received story about the hostage crisis of 1979 and the Iranian Revolution is a lie. In order to understand what has taken place during these crucial months, one has to know certain facts of history. The first and most important, is that the Shah of Iran, Mohammed Reza Shah Pahlavi, has been brought to political power by a coup d’état fomented by the CIA against the moderate and Moscow-backed goverment of Mossadegh in 1953. The connections between U.S. intelligence agencies and governements and the regime of Iran are overt. What is the link between that and the Iranian Revolution, you will ask? This: Richard Helms, former CIA director (1966-1973) and then U.S. ambassador in Iran (1973-1976), learned around 1975 that the Shah had cancer. So the geo-political and geo-strategical motivations that were behind the destitution — because that’s exactly what we are talking about here — of Mohammad Mossadegh in 1953 were sent back in motion again. But this time, it would be the Shah who will have to be replaced by again another fierce anti-communist. Lire la suite
