The seizure of the unarmed surveillance drone intact would give access to a treasure trove of classified information including the designs of the aircraft and its payload of sensors.
Two US officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed that the drone has been part of a CIA reconnaissance mission, involving the United State's intelligence community stationed in Afghanistan, CNN reported on Tuesday.
Any such operation would be highly classified, and those who might know are not talking, the report said.
US and Israeli covert ops targeting Iran - with video ~ link ~ That means that, on a limited scale, the Iranian War has already begun!!! Stirling
“The war has actually started. It is just the question of when the wider shooting war begins,” Dankof said in an interview with Press TV.
Dankof cited the assassination of Iranian nuclear scientists by Israeli-backed agents, the violation of Iranian airspace by US surveillance drones, and the new US-led economic sanctions imposed on Iran as examples of this undercover war.
He said the Mossad and the CIA have conducted these covert operations in collusion with terrorist groups such as the Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization (MKO), the Party for a Free Life in Kurdistan (PJAK), and Jundallah militants.
Citing essays written by M.J. Rosenberg and Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya, Dankof said the hostile policy of Israel and the US toward Iran has little or nothing to do with Tehran's alleged nuclear program but is meant to help the Tel Aviv regime maintain its military supremacy in the Middle East.
Describing the Israel regime as a political and economic “liability” on US taxpayers, he said the United States is being dragged into a war with Iran by the influential Zionist lobby.
“I turned on CNN and picked up [CNN reporter] Wolf Blitzer not knowing that he was an employee of the Israeli lobby and that he had written a sympathetic article on Pollard the Israeli spy,” Jeff Gates, author of the book Guilt by Association, said.
“I picked up the New York Times I got [Jewish American journalist] Judith Miller on the front page peddling the lie of the Iraqi who sold us the nonsense on Iraqi WMDs,” the California-based author said.
Gates said it is very difficult to free oneself from a mindset. “You have people not knowing that they are embracing a mindset, a framework,” he said,"that systematically undermines their freedom."
Gates said that the US uses this system of 'mindset warfare' to take “us to war in Iraq on false intelligence and sold us what was called the clash of civilizations.”
Thermobaric weapon (Wikipedia) ~ link ~ Thermobaric explosives apply the principles underlying accidental unconfined vapor cloud explosions (UVCE), which include those from dispersions of flammable dusts and droplets. In previous times they were most often encountered in flour mills and their storage containers, and later in coal mines, but now most commonly in discharged oil tankers and refineries, the most recent being at Buncefield in the UK where the blast wave woke people 150 kilometres (93 mi) from its centre.
