Bubba comments: "Not that I discount the idea of American involvement in the unrest in Iran, but I question why you are citing the "Turner Radio Network" as a serious news source. Wasn't Hal Turner already exposed as an FBI operative?"
I've posted a couple of articles on rabid wingnut Turner, most recently at my media blog. While I have no deep love for the New York Times, Washington Post, or Turner's radio network, if the information is important and consistent with known facts, I will draw upon it. Turner didn't write the article in question. It is consistent with information picked up from sources I'm attaching below. The source matters less than the accuracy of a story, and as Mae Brussell noted, the press often reveals things inadvertently because "they don't know how much you know" and suppressed cats tumble out the bag. - AC
