US 'has intelligence agents working in Iran'

A former US national security adviser has told Al Jazeera that US intelligence agents are working in Iran.

But Brent Scowcroft said US government support for those in Iran who are protesting against the official results of a recent presidential election would only provoke a more intense crackdown by the government in Tehran.

He told Josh Rushing, the host of Al Jazeera's programme Fault Lines, that the Obama administration has taken the correct approach in dealing with the unrest in Iran.

  • In the face of the Iranian regime's brutality towards its own people, sheeple like Red Pill are trying to find any excuse to blame ANYONE else but the mullahs.

    LOL @ Mullah apologists

    • Your logic of "us against them" means that you support the CIA who have killed over 5 million people since WWII. Congrats Stan - you're in favour of mass murder.

    • Of the 50 genocides of the 20th century, the US is listed as having none. Iran has a few.

      Consider this your luck day. You just became aware that every nation on the earth has blood on its hands, yet the US has very little in comparison to China, USSR, Iran, Afganistan, Cambodia, Rwanda, Argentina, Burundi, Germany, Japan, Algeria, Turkey, Iraq, and on and on... Congratulations, you are an apologist. Apologists are instrumental in disguising the truth to perpetuating mass murder. Yeah for More..

  • Quoted from Dan_man: "1 - OBL denied involvement in the attacks"
    --Actually I remember it being reported that he laughed afterwards and said that he never thought it would be that successful (destructive).

  • The U.S. has operatives in every country on the planet. Does this mean the U.S.A. controls everything? More sophomoric silliness from red_pill.

  • I'm the fool who believes the conventional wisdom and mainstream explanation for the attacks. What do you think about them? Who perpetrated them?

    • Like I said I'm not up with the mainstream version of events.

      Tell me: who was behind those attacks in your opinion?

    • Al Qaeda based in Afghanistan at the behest of KSM and with the blessing of OBL. Now your turn. Who did it, if these pieces of shit didn't?

    • I can shoot holes all over that conspiracy theory. 2 things come to mind:
      1 - OBL denied involvement in the attacks
      2 - KSM was tortured & admitted to loads of things, even things that happened after he was captured.


      Like I've already said, I don't know who was behind the attacks. I have suspicions but the people I suspect will never be investigated or stand trial.

      I have MUCH MUCH MUCH more solid proof than you do to back up your theory though.

    • Well, the only admission of Bin Laden being involved was some dubious tapes released...some thru Al Jazeera.

      Here's an OBL statement from 17 sep 2001:

      Here's a simple Google search:
      http://www.google.co.nz/search?q=osama denies involvement 9%2F11


      As for KSM, the guy was waterboarded 183 times in a single month. Confessions under torture are inadmissable I thought. You can research that yourself if you like. I don't believe he had an More..

  • I sure as hell hope we have agents there. Scowcroft is right, though, when he notes that they are a drop in the bucket relative to the Iranian people and their struggle against the Mullahs.

  • Quoted from ericredbeard: "The CIA did what it did so you could sit at home posting comments in a free society without getting drafted to serve in an army defending itself from armed communist invasion."

    --LOL! I admire your passion, but I'm having difficulty thinking of where the "invasion" is going to come from - Canada, Mexico, or Bermuda...

    • actually, CIA agents have been in iran for quite a while.
      they help to overthrow a democratically elected president in iran in the 1950's.
      of course they are doing it again.

      the real 9.11 lesson is that these type of actions cause blowback leading to situations like 9.11

    • You think Iran is a democracy?

      Now examine the blowback for 9/11. One corrupt bunker dictatorship in Iraq and one insane islamist theocracy in Afghanistan toppled, and in their place two fledgling democracies.
