When you’re shilling for a war in Iran as regularly as the Washington Times does, you’re constantly making up allegations centering around what anonymous officials totally bet is the case. That and hiring artists to make caricatures of an Ayatollah made of nukes.
The downside to doing this for so long is that your stories have to be bigger and scarier every time, and after years upon years of “Iran totally almost has nukes” being the slogan, they had to up the ante.
So now, with former CIA spy “Reza Kahlili” taking the byline and a convoluted story that would make Tom Clancy blush filling in the details, the Washington Times is now reporting, as though it is absolute fact, that Iran “already has nuclear weapons.”
Putting aside the nonsensical story for a minute, neither Kahlili nor the Times appears to understand that if Iran not only has nuclear weapons but, as they claim, has had them for many years, the whole narrative they’ve been pushing about such a weapon being an imminent threat in the hands of Iran is proven false by them never using these supposed Soviet surplus nukes.
