Obama’s FBI Knew Russia Aided Iran Nuclear Program Before Uranium One & Iran Deal: Report, by Tyler Durden

Mr. Hope and Change didn’t seem to do much to stop either the Russians or the Iranians from acquiring nuclear materials and technology. Whatever the merits of the Iranian nuclear deal, there was no chance it would have gone through if US lawmakers had known about Russian assistance to the Iranian nuclear program. From Tyler Durden at zerohedge.com:

During Obama’s first term, the FBI was presented with evidence that Russia was providing assistance to Iran’s nuclear program, according to former undercover informant William Douglas Campbell.

Campbell – who worked for the CIA for decades before his work for the FBI, tells The Hill that he gathered evidence of Russia intercepting nonpublic copies of international inspection reports concerning Tehran’s nuclear program – sending equipment, advice and materials to one of Iran’s several nuclear facilities.

Campbell said Russian nuclear executives were extremely concerned that Moscow’s ongoing assistance to Iran might boomerang on them just as they were winning billions of dollars in new nuclear fuel contracts inside the United States. –The Hill

The people I was working with had been briefed by Moscow to keep a very low profile regarding Moscow’s work with Tehran,” said Campbell. “Moscow was supplying equipment, nuclear equipment, nuclear services to Iran. And Moscow, specifically the leadership in Moscow, were concerned that it would offset the strategy they had here in the United States if the United States understood the close relationship between Moscow and Tehran.”

Notes of Campbell’s FBI debriefings show he reported in 2010 that a Russian nuclear executive was using “the same kind of payment network” to move funds between Russia and Iran as was used to launder kickbacks between Moscow and Americans.

Campbell worked from 2008 to 2014 as an undercover informant inside Rosatom, Russia’s state-controlled nuclear giant, while posing as a consultant. He helped the FBI put several Russian and U.S. executives in prison for a bribery, kickback, money laundering and extortion scheme.  –The Hill

    So is Trump right or wrong to get out of the lying Mr. H and C’s deal with Iran assuming that Russia provided all that help(according to the ZH article?

    • I supported the Iranian nuclear deal then and now. It’s the only way we get a window on Iran. We back out and one of two things happen. Iran continues to abide by it (there’s been no allegations that it has not lived up to it so far) and the US has to find another reason to make war on Iran. Or Iran abrogates the agreement, kicks out the inspectors, and starts building nuclear weapons. That presumably leads to war and that will be a mess that will make everything we’ve done to date in the Middle East look like a Sunday picnic. Under the agreement, Iran has done everything it agreed to do. I’m assuming if US or Israel’s intelligence agencies had found violations we’d have heard about it. Short of blowing Iran, and consequently the Middle East, to smithereens, the treaty has offered the only prospect of stopping Iran from manufacturing nuclear weapons. An imperfect but functioning treaty is better than an imperfect and catastrophic war.

  3. Thank you for the insight. I have never been able to figure out which side–pro vs anti treaty was telling the truth. Better to go with possible peace than more war.
