There’s a fine line between propaganda and downright lying – neoconservative Commentary propagandist Jonathan Tobin has crossed that line.

The latest report being prepared by the International Atomic Energy Agency about Iran appears to be a sobering retort to those who have spent the summer trying to claim that Israel’s warnings about the need to act should be ignored. The report, which has not yet been released but whose contents have been leaked, says that Iran has installed hundreds of new centrifuges in recent months and is devoting its efforts to refining uranium to a level of greater than 20 percent, a sign that it is working on a nuclear bomb and not, as it disingenuously contends, on medical research.

Tobin’s link takes you to a New York Times article which, in relation to the assertion about Iran refining uranium, actually says:

The report will also indicate, according to the officials familiar with its contents, that Iran is increasingly focused on enriching uranium to a level of 20 percent — a purity that it says it needs for a specialty nuclear reactor that it insists is used only for medical purposes.

That’s “to a level of 20%”, not “to a level of greater than 20%” as Tobin says deliberately lying.

What warmongering scumbags!!

Sound like nitpicking to me. Iran has lied over and over and over again about it's programs just like Iraq did. Why should we start believing them now? This isn't rocket science bozo.

Bozo Tennessean, the only people that lied about Iraq were George W. Bush and his neocon mates that had wormed their way into his administration to get the US to fight Israel's wars.

As for Iran, there is not one piece of solid evidence proving that Iran has a nuclear weapons program. Not one.

Iran is just another country that the Israelis want the US to destroy for them.

Neocons have lied through their teeth to get the US to fight Israel's wars. Tobin is just another neocon liar - as I have proved.
