WorldNetDaily admits its ties to Iranian intelligence

Well, how do you read this?

Although it is not known yet who is responsible for Monday’s heinous bombings at the Boston Marathon that killed three and injured more than 100 people, a source within Iranian intelligence services told WND the Islamic regime was behind them and to look for trails through Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

    Also, don’t forget Farah is a Phalangist. Two fascist factions, plus a Settler fascist – Orly.

    And they accuse liberals of being subversives…

    Having run out of intelligent things to say and educational funds as well, it’s time for me to take some Yale free on-line courses.

    I also thought I might mention for those sharing internet with 16-year-old high school students like I recently am, I have noticed that my Google searches have diminished from college material to high school material. What to do? What to do?

    Well, WND might have connections in Iranian intelligence agencies.

    Or they might be LYING.

    Deborah, I can recommend Paul Freedman’s Early Middle Ages course. Lots of Byzantine, Caliphate, and European “Barbarian” history.

    The internet and mainstream media sometimes rely on rumors and hearsay. Scholarly articles are in sharp contrast. According to my library research professor, a news event goes through cycles. The cycle is essentially this: (I had to drop that class so this is not exact)

    The first day, the event is reported by local media (television news and/or radio). Over the next few days the event is covered by newspapers. 1-2 weeks later it is reported more in-depth by news magazines such as Newsweek,Times, People, etc. Three months later (more or less), there may be an in-depth television documentary. Six months later more there may be a book. A year later there may be an in-depth analysis in a scholarly journal.

    And here I thought all of Wingnutlandia had settled on a Saudi perp. I guess they all do look alike, but what I don’t understand is with all the media in this country, the Iranians decided to leak this to World Nut Daily? Seriously?

    They keep their Iranian agents with all of their experts and insider agents. They even have a white paper on it. It’s quilted.

    Typically empty, wishy-washy “assertive” prose (i.e., noncommittal bullsh*t).

    I could swear they fill these conjecture/allegations-posing-as-stories out using forms (or perhaps script generators?), which can have unfortunate, humorous, embarrassing results.

    I am reminded again of that job listing from 2011(?) in which WND was seeking work-at-home ‘volunteers’.

    They ought to at least read through once before uploading.

    If you recall your history, it was Iran that invited Joe Vogler (the founder of the separationist and violently anti-American “Alaska Independence Party”) to talk at the UN.

    Vogler blew himself up, or got blown-up, when an illegal explosives buy went wrong before he could get to the UN.

    But Sarah Palin spoke at their annual convention, twice, and praised them for the good job they were doing.

    If nothing else, this is the first time that “WND” and “intelligence” have appeared in the same sentence without anything along the lines of “is not read or produced by people with” between them.

    Keith: Vogler blew himself up, or got blown-up, when an illegal explosives buy went wrong before he could get to the UN.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joe_Vogler

    Convicted thief Manfried West confessed to having murdered Vogler the following year in what he described as an illegal plastic explosive sale gone bad. Vogler’s remains were discovered in a gravel pit east of Fairbanks in October 1994 following an anonymous tip. They had been wrapped in a blue tarp secured with duct tape and were identified through fingerprint analysis. Manfried West was convicted of murdering Joe Vogler and is serving an 80 year sentence.

    Ah, that explains why it always feels like Farah is giving my intelligence the finger.

    I always said that “World Net Daily ” was part of the “insidious menace of worldwide Communism whose clutching claws and bloody hands are even now wrapping themselves around our moral fiber and American way of life,” as J. Edgar Hoover used to say.

    I always had a tough time with that one from Edgar, but his troops had a harder time when he would ask that even more impossible question:

    “Guys, does this dress make me look fat?”

    Not that the story would have any more truth to it, mind you…..

    Farah also runs the G2 Intelligence site. The information is all hyper-paranoid ranting and raving, but you have to subscribe to get to it. You also have to pay to subscribe.

    So it wouldn’t surprise me if he’s got some connections, here and there. But I bet they’re more Curveball than Deep Throat.

    You have to pay to get into the site, and have to subscribe…and he’s accepting US money, in spite of his paranoid ravings?

    Sounds like he’s in it for that noblest of purposes…to con marks.

    The guy who wrote that article is “Reza Kahlili,” the pseudonym of a self-proclaimed former CIA operative who worked undercover in Iran. The Washington Post has noted that some observers “compared Kahlili with Ahmed Chalabi, the former Iraqi exile who helped convince the George W. Bush administration that Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.” Indeed, he’s best known for his laughably discredited claim that Iran was planning nuclear suicide bombings with “a thousand suitcase bombs spread around Europe and the U.S.”

    So, yeah, it’s a guy using a fake name citing anonymous sources to fearmonger about Iran. In other words, just as trustworthy as the rest of WND.
