How the Terrorist Regime Bought the
Bomb and American Politicians
Jerome R. Corsi, Ph.D.
With the reconstruction of Iraq under way and the distraction of the U.S. presidential election behind us, focus will once again turn to a gathering threat—The Islamic Republic of Iran. A charter member of the “axis of evil,” this rogue terrorist state and the mullahs who govern it are on a collision course with American and European governments that seek to end its development of nuclear weapons. The influence of Iran cannot be discounted, however, because it has perfected the art of oil price manipulation in order to fund its nuclear endeavors, terrorist activities, and strategic contributions to key U.S. politicians who, in turn, work diligently at normalizing diplomatic and trade relations between the two nations.
In Atomic Iran, Jerome Corsi, co-author of the best-selling Unfit for Command, uncovers the true intentions and practices of the Iranian regime and gives light to the aid and comfort being supplied by some key U.S. politicians. Uncovered is a web of pro-Iranian financiers who make significant campaign contributions to political leaders who affect U.S. trade policy towards Iran and are able to work at normalizing diplomatic relations, thereby legitimizing the rogue republic. This poses an immediate security threat to the United States. It allows the regime to take advantage of relaxations in the Patriot Act to begin importing terrorists under the disguise of diplomatic personnel.
Also revealed is the manipulation of world oil prices by Iran. Its restriction of supply has the dual effect of hindering the growth of world economies and increasing revenue for Iran, which is then used to fund international terrorism and its own deadly pursuits. Dr. Corsi warns that a nuclear Iran would devastate the Middle East through its tyrannical policies and threats and would have a significant impact on the world by using its control of 40 percent of the global oil supply to hold nations hostage with oil prices rising to over $100 and even $200 per barrel.
Atomic Iran is a wake-up call to Americans. It is a call to pay attention to the growing crisis with Iran and to hold U.S. politicians accountable for their relationships with and efforts on behalf of the Iranian regime. By understanding the events that led to Iran’s arrival at the verge of nuclear statehood, the intentions of the mullahs, their connection with American politicians, and the severe repercussions to be suffered from allowing the regime to proceed with its plans, readers of Atomic Iran will be equipped to take the debate to their local communities and to the officials they have entrusted with their safety and security.

SATODAY.com - Iran promises response to nuclear incentive package ...
Iran said Thursday it would formally respond on Aug. 22 to a Western package of incentives aimed at resolving the standoff over its suspect nuclear program ...
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran said Thursday it would reply Aug. 22 to the Western incentive package to stop enriching uranium, but it also issued a veiled threat, indicating Tehran will not accept any deal that dilutes its nuclear program.
The statement by the Supreme National Security Council was Iran's first mention of a precise date after weeks of being accused of stalling.
It said Iran "has made plans to produce part of its nuclear fuel needs inside the country and is making efforts to meet its required fuel" — a process that entails enriching uranium for use in nuclear reactors.
The council also warned that Iran would retaliate if the world tried to punish it.
"In case the path of confrontation is chosen instead of the path of dialogue ... and Iran's definite rights are threatened, then there will be no option for Iran but to reconsider its nuclear policies," the council said.
The statement did not spell out what Tehran would do, but Iranian officials have repeatedly threatened to withdraw from the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty and stop cooperating with U.N. nuclear inspectors.
The permanent members of U.N. Security Council plus Germany offered Iran a package of incentives June 6 to persuade it to suspend enrichment — a process that can produce material for atomic weapons as well as fuel for reactors. The incentives include advanced technology and the easing of U.S. sanctions on the sale of aircraft and aircraft parts.
Last week, the world powers decided to refer Iran to the U.N. Security Council, saying it had taken too long to reply and had given no sign of wanting to negotiate in earnest over its nuclear ambitions.
The Supreme National Security Council insisted Iran wants to avoid a showdown.
"Iran is not after tension, but if others push things toward tension and create problems, then all will face problems," it said. "Iran believes dialogue is the most logical solution. It is serious in this path. We want the other side to return to the negotiating table."
It accused the United States of hindering a solution, blaming it for the decision to refer Iran to the Security Council, which has the power to impose sanctions.
"The United States, by changing the path of talks toward Security Council, is trying to create obstacles," the statement said.
Political analyst Saeed Leilaz said the United States and its allies would find it difficult to pass a Security Council resolution supported by Russia and China while Iran was making clear that it would reply to the incentives.
"It will not be worth creating global tension simply because Iran will give a response a few weeks later than the U.S. has demanded," Leilaz said.
The Iranian council said special committees in key state agencies were studying the offer.
"The package of incentives requires a logical time to study it. ... Aug. 22 has been set for declaring (our) views," the council said in the statement that was read on state-run television.
The United States and some of its allies accuse Iran of seeking to produce highly enriched uranium and plutonium for nuclear weapons.
Tehran says its nuclear program is aimed at generating electricity. Thursday's statement referred to a national plan to "to meet 20,000 megawatts of electricity through nuclear energy in the next 20 years."
Tehran has insisted on exercising its right to produce nuclear fuel as a signatory to the non-proliferation treaty, but Western powers are suspicious of its intentions because it concealed parts of its nuclear development from U.N. inspectors for years.
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad initially said Iran would respond to the package in mid-August, but Tehran later pushed it back to late August.
On Wednesday, Russia said the U.N. Security Council is in no rush to pressure Iran, striking a more conciliatory tone than Washington as diplomats began discussing a resolution demanding Tehran suspend enrichment or face the prospect of economic and diplomatic sanctions.
