Gareth Porter, author of Manufactured Crisis: The Untold Story of the Iran Nuclear Scare (2014) discusses and elaborates on critical issues raised in his 3/22 article on The American Conservative, “The Untold Story of John Bolton's Campaign for War with Iran” which dates back to the war on Iraq in 2003, when, while technically working as undersecretary of state for Colin Powell, he was secretly working for Vice-President Dick Cheney and meeting, against State Dept. rules, with Mossad director, Meir Dagan, to get the US to attack Iran. Porter connects Bolton to the obtaining of a phony cache of material contained on a computer, supposdly exposing an Iranian nuclear weapons program, to the MEK, an Iranian terrorist group that had connections to Mossad.

Porter notes the influence of Zionist megabillionaire and major donor to Trump, Sheldon Adelson in getting Bolton into the White House and influence, in general on Trump's Middle East policies.

Changing subjects, Porter speaks about the likely false flag episodes in Syria and the UK, noting that he was one of those who exposed the false story of the supposed Syrian sarin gas attack against a Syrian town a year ago, but he made a point of correcting the notion that Def, Sec Mattis was speaking of that attack when in Feb. he said there was no evidence of sarin in another attack.

Regarding the declaration and insistence by the UK government that Putin was personally behind an attack with a nerve agent on a former Russian double agent in Salisbury the deadly effects of which turned out to be highly exaggerated, Porter suggests that the attack might have been the work of Mossad that makes good use of conflict in the region.
