Danny Schechter: Telling Iranians Latest Threat To Iran May Be More Israeli BS; Commission Named; Moon Walk Ongoing Probe: 9 Dead, 50 Wounded in Bomb Blasts Near Big Hotels in Jakarta, Indonesia. One Indonesian I have been in touch with fears it may have been connected to recent elections. ON THE AIR IN TEHRAN MORE ON GOLDMAN GARBAGE DEBATING PROTECTIONISM At around 5 PM last night, I had a call From PRESS TV in Iran asking if I would come on for an interview to discuss an article in the London Times reporting that Israel was actively planning to attack Iran? The “booker” on the other side of the phone was alarmed. “Please do a live interview at 6 PM (our time, 2:30 AM in Iran.) It’s important.” I found the article dateline Jerusalem quoting an unnamed Israeli Defense official who confirmed that Israeli war ships with nuclear weapons had traveled through the the Suez Canal on their way to the Persian Gulf. After I found the piece on the Information Clearing House site, I could understand their sense of urgency. So I printed it out, slipped it in my pocket and asked the man in Tehran to arrange for a cab. It was rush hour in New York and I know it wouldn’t be easy to get to Rockefeller Center on time. They called back to say it was too late to get a car, ‘Could you get a cab, please.’ Now I know that’s tough to do in a NY rush hour but I said I would try. It was now 5:15, and after 5 cabs went by, I saw one and muscled out someone else to get it. After all, this was urgent. We took off quickly, but then predictably found ourselves stuck in traffic on Sixth Avenue. Nothing was moving. Nothing at all. And then the driver told me that traffic was being re-routed at 42nd Street. Sixth Avenue was closed. “Oh didn’t you hear,”he said, “I think Obama is in town. Of course. He was, speaking to the NAACP. Midtown had become a “frozen zone,” in Secret Service parlance. When the meter hit $9 I was still at 40th St. NBC and the GE Building is at 49th.So I paid up and hoofed it, just arriving in time. In the lobby, I ran into entertainment columnist Roger Friedman, formerly of FOX and the NY Post. He had just written a piece on my former station. He was there to tape an interview with the Today Show. I ran into radio talk show host Joe Madison who was there waiting to do the Ed Schultz show on MSNBC. In contrast, I was broadcasting electronically via satellite to Tehran, not to be seen or heard by my countrymen and women. Typical! As it turned out, “the fiber” had broken down somehow, whatever that means. The Iranians said it was NBC’s fault, of course. NBC blamed PRESS TV. That led to a 20 minute delay. I was cooling my heels watching some drivel on CNBC. When I finally got on, they didn’t have much time for more than just a few questions. So much for my exposure in the midnight sun of the Islamic Republic. When asked about the report—“Israeli Navy in Suez Canal Prepares for Portential Attack on Iran” with its quote from an unnamed Israeli official saying “this is preparation that should be taken seriously,” I smelled a rat. It was one of those patched together pieces that reference A & B trying to get it to equal five. I said I thought it was one more psychologial warfare propaganda story, planted in the willing pages of Rupert Murdoch’s Times of London. (Murdoch calls himself a Christian Zionist.) It was more neo-con nonsense aimed at worrying the Obama Administration, and freaking out the Iranians. The suggestion was that Israel would give up settlements if the US only lets it nuke Iran (to keep Iran from getting nukes, of course. I am sure that the paranoid on all sides would disagree with me, but the story struck me as fabricated BS by a government which is now paying people to post propaganda on websites.
