Ahmadinejad Claims Letter A Hoax, Cites Propaganda, Prelude To
Other World Leaders Received Similar Tomes;
The current Immigration and Border Security brouhaha may be expanding to another continent.
And don’t look for a thawing between Iran-U.S. relations anytime soon, as earlier today Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad charged the Bush Administration with engaging in “propaganda”, claiming he never sent President Bush an “18-page” letter, denouncing democracy, criticizing Bush for his handling of Sept. 11th, spreading lies about the
“This Bush you call President does nothing but lie,” declared a defiant Ahmadinejad during a 4-hour rally in Teheran, before an estimated crowd of 500,000. Later in his speech, Ahmadinejad charged that “Bush wrote the letter himself ... To prepare for his evil forces to invade our great country.”
Many of those gathered carried white envelopes, with the name “President Bush,
Blair “Waiting To Speak With Bush” and Putin Believes Letters Came From White House
Largely ignored by the mainstream media is that since President Bush received his alleged Ahmadinejad letter, other world leaders have also received similar tomes said to be written by Ahmadinejad.
The offices of British Prime Minister, and staunch Bush supporter, Tony Blair, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Jacques Chirac and Russian President Vladimir Putin all confirm receiving such letters.
A spokesperson for Blair indicated that the “Prime Minister has read the correspondence” but was “waiting to speak with President Bush before issuing any comments.”
Chirac and Merkel declined comment, but Putin issued a statement that he “likely believes” Ahmadinejad, that the letters came from the White House.
Putin is still smarting from criticism from Vice President Dick Cheney. In a speech last week, Cheney attacked
Ahmadinejad “Sort Of An Islamic Lyndon LaRouche”; Said To Have Made Offer To
Whether he believes an invasion is imminent, or, as some observers believe, he is mocking President Bush’s border security problems, Ahmadinejad also announced he is calling on the Iran National Guard to take posts along Iran’s borders, and, in doing so, extended an offer of “double the pay” to U.S. National Guardsman who will come to Iran to guard the borders.
“The Iranian National Guard,” says Harold "Ace" Larson, an analyst for the counterintelligence think tank, 'Book'em and Beat'em', “is basically, conscripts – and the worst of the conscripts ... They work for peanuts and would offer little-to-no resistance to any invading force.”
“Our sources in the country say this Guard call-up is not being received very well,” added Larsen. “The people there will go along with Ahmadinejad’s ranting and raving – think of him as a, sort of, Islamic Lyndon LaRouche – but when he goes to do something, they look at him, then to the Ayatollahs, to see what they should do.”
Sources close to the Bush Administration say that intelligence reports show that
The Iranian president is said to be encouraging Fox to protect his side of the border against “American aggression” and has offered to send as many as 50,000 Iranian National Guardsman to augment the Mexicans.
WHIIG, Lincoln Group Eyed; Cheney Claims “Iranian Government is in its final throes”
Back in Washington, there is rampant speculation that the letter, supposedly from Ahmadinejad, may be the work of the new White House Iraq and Iran Group, a spin-off of the already-established WHIG, possibly with the assistance of The Lincoln Group, the public relations firm contracted by the Pentagon to plant pro-American stories in Iraqi media.
“This has WHIIG’s fingerprints all over it,” offered Hugh P. Varicator, a consultant with the conservative think tank, 'Cry Wolf'.
“Look how quickly Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice denounced the package,” added Varicator.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Rice “swiftly rejected the letter”, saying "This letter is not the place that one would find an opening to engage on the nuclear issue or anything of the sort. It isn't addressing the issues that we're dealing with in a concrete way."
There are also unconfirmed reports that, while on his recent trip in
Sources close to the White House say with new Chief of Staff Josh Bolten taking Andy Card’s spot in the White House Iraq and Iran Group, Bolten lobbied to launch similar media efforts run in Iraq for Iran, as part of “keeping all option on the table”
“WHIIG is going to pour it on,” said one official with ties to the White House. “They’re going to milk the “Ahmadinejad is crazy” card frequently and often. They’ll have him spouting off, pushing the fear buttons ... Instead of ‘mushroom clouds’ it will be ‘The Iranian President said this, he did that’ ...”
Unconfirmed reports say that the Department of Homeland Security will be adding a new color to the Terror Alert Chart, specifically for Ahmadinejad.
With Mexico concerned about a build up of U.S. Military along its' border, members of the Federación de Matadores are said to be preparing to take posts opposite U.S. National Guardsman and will "employ their skills, if necessary"
