Well guess what..its been more than a few months from April 09.

I dont believe ” a non-Iranian businessman based in Central Asia and traveling often to Tehran” is a reliable source and close enough to Khamenei to be aware of this issue while the rest of the world has had no idea..I dont trust whatever wikileaks leaks!

We all know Rafsanjanis position in the regime. If this had been true he would be sure to know.

However, this claim is kind of special, meaning that this person he told this to, his spy connections are blown.

But it is impressive how western media manage to turn these messages as the truth about Iran.

The reality is that the US and Israel are the warmongers in the region backed by its puppets, the brutal dictators of Saudi Arabia, the military dictators in Egypt and Pakistan etc.

Compared to SA Iran has immense amount of respect for women. SA is also the main producer of “terrorists” to the west. So why do the US ally itself with the dictators?

Yes because nothing is more stable then a dictatorship and that Iran has #2 largest oil fields and #3 on gas. And that it has some kind of democracy, however it is completely flawed, that makes it more unstable then the dictators around.

Remember; CIA destroyed the democraticly elected government in Iran in 1954. It was completely democratic, but that was not what Washington wanted, and they made the dictator shah to take over.

When the population had enough with the secret police, the torture, the killings, the shah fell cause of a uprise amongst normal inhabitants.

That they changed the dictatoric shah for the dictatoric religious government, is not their fault, but the US fault for destroying the real democracy in the country.

Israel and the US are the problem for world peace. US for being an imperic militaristic government that promotes democracy in word, but promotes dictature in reality, same way as dictators promote communism (China, vietnam, North-Korea), Islam (Iran and almost all countries in the ME) or Judeaism/democracy like Israel.

What people use as a reason for their actions does not matter. What they do in reality is what we can endorse or hate.

Delurium – you speak the truth.

I’ll add that democracy is returning to Iran. It is not by chance that the king pin Ayatollah has cancer.

Everyone who attended that meeting last July will get it from the radiation poison injected in the air ducts. (you will not find that in a Wikileak).

Those Iranian students are now organized and taking back their country.

Long live democracy and freedom.

@ AmirAm
you are right. But that is the nature of HumInt. You gather rumors, and send it to analysts to have them sort through the information for what seems credible and what isn’t. After that (and only after that) is it call intelligence. Before it’s just information or data.

@ Delurium
first only a fool believes everything that they have read. But I don’t really think that the world media is taking this story as sete in stone fact.
