Propaganda preparation for attack on Iran

Monday 4th April 2005

The American propaganda preparation for an attack on Iran has been geared up, with the formation of an organisation called the Iran Freedom Foundation which is running television advertisements claiming that Iran intends to set off atomic weapons inside the United States.

The interesting and disturbing thing about this organisation is that it appears to be run by a certain Jerome Corsi, who was one of the people behind the attacks ("Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry") on John Kerry during the presidential election campaign. See:
Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry by John E. O'Neill and Jerome R. Corsi (Amazon).

Corsi's statements are further detailed in the following three articles:

It is interesting that the date mentioned in the third of these articles: An atomic Iran is imminent ... mullahs may have bomb by June" corresponds with the June date which Scott Ritter claims Bush has "signed off on" for an attack. See, for instance:

It would be interesting to know whether the address given (888 16th Street NW Suite 800 Washington, DC 20006) is simply an accomodation address, or if not whether it is shared or close to any other organisations of interest.
