Iran blasted Bush saying his hypocrisy was unveiled by the NIE Report.
Iranian Fars News reported:
Commander-in-Chief of Iran’s Armed Forces said that the latest US National Intelligence Estimate disclosed the hypocritical face of the US President Georg W. Bush.
“The hypocritical and bullying face of Bush and the US neoconservative reactionaries was brought into light by this report,” Major General Hassan Firooz Abadi said in the wake of the latest report by 16 US intelligence agencies stressing that Iran is not pursuing a nuclear weapons program.
Meantime, he called on Iran to maintain vigilance, reminding that the hawks are still in power in the US.
“We should be vigilant as the hawks are still in power in the US and the aggressive forces of the world arrogance are still occupying Afghanistan and Iraq and their oppression and cruelty against the Palestinian and Lebanese nations have not ended,” the commander said.
The Iranians also said that the intelligence officials behind the NIE Report lied when they claimed that Iran had halted its nuclear arms program in 2003.
The US report said Iran had halted an atomic weapons program in 2003.
“The claim that Iran had changed its nuclear weapons programs since 2003 is a mere lie to show that it was the US pressures that forced Iran to stop its nuclear weapons program.
“By raising such claims, the US officials intend to legitimize continuation of more pressures against Iran,” the MP argued.
Noting that the “The extremist Republicans at the White House are still telling lies to the world population,” Jalali stressed, “Such fabrications would soon be unveiled to the world community.” The report, provided by 16 US security foundations, also acknowledged that Iran has not been pursuing a nuclear weapons development program.
