It seems all were not as rosy as the Washington Post made out. Or is it? It has really become hard to trust the MSM lately.
"TEHRAN, Iran — A former Iranian deputy defense minister who disappeared from Turkey last month is not cooperating with Western intelligence agencies and his whereabouts remain a mystery, a U.S. official told FOX News Thursday.Hmmm. So, a "US" official from TEHRAN said that this defense minister is not cooperating. In fact, the "US" does not even know where he is. So, if the "US" does not know where he is then they can't be cooperating. HOWEVER....
The Washington Post reported Thursday that Ali Rez Asgari, who is credited with founding the Lebanese terror group Hezbollah, was fully cooperating with and divulging information to U.S. and other intelligence services.
However, a senior U.S. official flatly denied the report."
"The official did not rule out the possibility that Asgari, who once commanded Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards and served as the country's deputy defense minister, was conducting negotiations with an intelligence organization, but denied that there was any type of cooperation with the U.S."So, he is in "negotiations" with an intelligence organization (bet you it is Turkey or USA) but even that does not mean he is "cooperating" with anyone. Pschaw!!
You doubt me of course. Well, then how about this then...
"Iran has publicly said that Asgari was probably kidnapped by agents working for Western intelligence agencies."Hmmm, well if he was kidnapped then we WOULD know where he was, wouldn't we?!!?!?
Confused yet? No? Ok, prepare to be more confused....
"But the Post quoted an Iranian official who spoke on the condition of anonymity as saying that Asgari was most likely offered money by Israel to leave Iran. The Post also quoted a U.S. official who suggested that Asgari's disappearance was voluntary and that it was orchestrated by the Israelis.So, if it he isn't lost, then he is in USA's hands. If he isn't in USA's hands, then he is in Israeli's, cause as everyone knows, they are the little satan of the world. So, Israel offered money to a high level operative of the Iranian defense ministry and he supposedly took it. Right!! Well, if that excuse didn't work, then his leaving was "orchestrated" by the Israelis. Cause their hands are in to everything; even the inner workings of the Iranian defense ministry. Then if you don't believe that, then as he was seeking asylum IN America, through the cooperation of Israel, he was supposed to be in Istanbul, Turkey. And we all know how much Turkey loves Israel. NOT.
The London-based al-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper reported Wednesday that Asgari was seeking asylum in the United States.
The retired general never arrived at a hotel in Istanbul last month where he was expected and Iran has asked Interpol for help in his disappearance."
Somehow, I don't think Turkey will stoop to cooperate with Israel no matter how much they want to stop Iran from getting the bomb. So, we have multiple articles with details that constantly conflict with one another and even offer up completely hypothetical nonsensical theories. But yet, we are to take the MSM as fact.
And funniest of all. We are to believe that this US official was in Tehran making these comments. Hint. As soon as you see the news header state that it is from Tehran, ignore it completely.
