Iran in Wonderland II


The image below speaks a thousand words. — Of course, insofar as its real information content is concerned, what the satellite image reveals very well may be zero.  (Aside from the fact that it clearly depicts human-made structures somewhere on the surface of the planet earth.)  But insofar as its use as a prop in a performance by spokesmen for the National Council of Resistance of Iran – a.k.a. Mujahedin-e Khalq: an outfit that, until it was de-listed in late 2007, had been ranked among the British Home Office’s Proscribed Terrorist groups, and still retains this ranking among the U.S. Department of State’s official Foreign Terrorist Organizations – purporting to provide the world with evidence of "Iran’s secret nuclear weapons program command headquarters," it’s invaluable.  Particularly in the hands of the assorted Bomb-Iran sects still lurking within the U.S. and Israeli regimes.  For whom the absence of evidence of an undeclared nuclear weapons program in Iran is sufficient to convict Iran of harboring an undeclared nuclear weapons program.
