Iran bombshell - Iraqi nuclear physicist, IMAD KHADDURI, tells goharrison: “This doesn’t reflect what actually happened. The U.S. used inspectors as a method of espionage, not for legitimate arms inspections purposes. Scott Ritter notes in a recent article titled ‘We ain’t found shit’ why the Iranians shouldn’t accept ‘no notice’ inspections of its nuclear sites. The ‘no notice’ inspection on Iraq didn’t help with the disarmament process, but they were a gold mine for illegitimate espionage. The Iranians learned from our mistakes and they were much better negotiators.” See from FAIR: “It’s Simple, Face the Nation: Iran Doesn’t Trust U.S. Inspectors -- and Shouldn’t.”

The New York Times earlier this year published a piece by John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the UN from 2005 to 2006 and now with the American Enterprise Institute. In the piece, ‘To Stop Iran’s Bomb, Bomb Iran,’ he claims: “The inconvenient truth is that only military action like Israel’s 1981 attack on Saddam Hussein’s Osirak reactor in Iraq.” It’s a claim that’s long been made by war hawks, for example, Jeffrey Goldberg in the Atlantic has claimed: “In 1981, Israeli warplanes bombed the Iraqi reactor at Osirak, halting -- forever, as it turned out -- Saddam Hussein’s nuclear ambitions.”

Khadduri said: “This is nonsense. I worked on the pre-1981 nuclear program and I was certain it would not be used for military purposes. But after the 1981 bombing, we were so angry that we were ready to work on a military program. The Israeli attack didn’t end the nuclear weapons program, it began it.” See IPA news release: “Myth: Israel’s Strike on Iraqi Reactor Hindered Iraqi Nukes.”

Khadduri added: “The Iranian nuclear program is peaceful. Their nuclear program started in the 1950s under the U.S. government’s Atoms for Peace project, which sent Iraq, Iran and other counties nuclear plans. In the case of Iraq, it was a gift from the U.S. for joining the Baghdad Pact. After the revolution in Iraq ended the monarchy, the U.S. built for Iran the plant they were going to build for us. ...

“The Iranian nuclear program really took off in the 1970s after the U.S. convinced the Shah that he could be a regional power only if he embraced the atom. But the U.S. was trying to gouge the Shah, so he had the Germans build his reactors. A main component of the Iranian program is a research reactor used for medical purposes -- even Iranian Americans frequently go back to Tehran for chemo because it’s provided for free. ...

“When Ayatollah Khomeini came to power, he stopped work on Iranian nuclear facilities. He had already come to the position that having nuclear weapons was religiously prohibited and the financial costs were enormous. But he eventually allowed it to be restarted for peaceful purposes since the costs of cancelling the contracts were high. During the war with Iran, Iraq attacked the Iranian nuclear facilities more than 12 times, but they were minor attacks. But after the Iranians bombed Iraqi oil refineries, Saddam ordered the destruction of two Iranian reactors in 1987, killing 14 people including one German and the Germans withdrew.

“Since then, the Iranians have been struggling to have a serious nuclear program for civilian purposes, and the U.S. has continuously put up road blocks. The recent deal compromises Iran’s notion of nuclear sovereignty, but gets the Iranians what they really wanted.”

(Khadduri is author of the books Iraq’s Nuclear Mirage: Memoirs and Delusions and Unrevealed Milestones in the Iraqi National Nuclear Program 1981-1991. He now runs the “Free Iraq” blog)

Obama Administration Disavowed Report on Rightwing Violence

WASINGTON- Rania Khalek tells GoHarrison about the Homeland security report which predicted Charleston, among many other recent incidents. “Daryl Johnson’s prophetic 2009 report predicted that the election of America’s first Black president coupled with an ailing economy would spark a resurgence in rightwing extremism, with ‘white supremacist lone wolves’ posing ‘the most significant domestic terrorist threat because of their low profile and autonomy -- separate from any formalized group -- which hampers warning efforts.’

“Johnson’s report also drew attention to the danger of extremists recruiting military veterans.

“Though intended exclusively for law enforcement, the report was leaked immediately after publication, generating a firestorm on the right.

“Whipped into a frenzy, conservative media outlets and Republican lawmakers mischaracterized the report as an Obama administration conspiracy to smear all conservatives as potentially violent extremists.

“In a stunning display of political cowardice, the Obama administration caved in to the pressure.

“Within days of the leak, newly appointed DHS secretary Janet Napolitano apologized for the report and Johnson’s DHS unit was slowly disbanded over the following year, leaving behind just one analyst to assess all non-Islamic extremist threats for DHS.

“Six years later, Johnson’s prescient warnings have been tragically vindicated again and again.

“In 2012, U.S. army veteran and neo-Nazi skinhead Wade Michael Page stormed into a Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, and fatally gunned down six worshippers.

“Last year, Frazier Glenn Miller, the former ‘grand dragon’ of the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and a longtime anti-Semite, killed three people outside a Jewish community center in Overland Park, Kansas.

“Two months later, anti-government extremists Jerad and Amanda Miller killed three people in Las Vegas.”

The Secret History of Gay Marriage

Monday’s radio show features Yasmin Nair, co-founder of the group Against Equality. She tells GoHarrison that just before the Supreme Court decision, “All this simulated anxiety reminds me of the stereotypical Victorian woman, pretending to be surprised by the attentions of a suitor: ‘Why, I never! Gay Marriage in my lifetime? Heavens, I am quite taken aback!’

“Surely, given the tremendous shifts in both cultural and legal attitudes to gay marriage both here and abroad, we might finally drop this pretense of surprise.

“Still, gays and lesbians everywhere are pretending. And part of this cultural exercise involves a rewriting of history to make it seem like marriage is not only the natural but the only desired outcome of decades, really, centuries of queer existence. ...

“The secret history of gay marriage is that it was never a topic of huge concern in the LGBTQ community until the rise of the mainstream gay organisations in the mid-1990s. Here’s what really happened: Following a depletion of political energy post-AIDS, we saw the growth of groups like Human Rights Campaign and the older National Lesbian and Gay Task Force (now The National LGBTQ Task Force), led by mostly white gay men and women or the occasional token people of color who fervently believed that normative politics was the only way to go.”

Ms Nair’s work has appeared in various anthologies and journals, including Captive Genders: Trans Embodiment and the Prison Industrial Complex, Singlism: What It Is, Why It Matters and How to Stop It, Windy City Queer: Dispatches from the Third Coast, Arab Studies Quarterly and Gay Press, Gay Power: The Growth of LGBT Community Newspapers in America

GOHARRISON / Cary Harrison
Cary Harrison, often known by his last name, “Harrison”, began his career when he co-conceived and produced an entertainment show for multiple cable stations.  The program, Screen Test, won several cable ACE awards and was the prototype for what later became E! Entertainment Television. 

Early in his career, he hawked wares on the Home Shopping Network, and hosted programs from ESPN to SuperStation TBS.  Whether playing past presidents on the History Channel or voicing myriad other characters on several award winning A&E programs, Harrison's career is as varied as his interests.

Radio has taken him from top stations in Florida, Chicago, New York City and LA, including national syndication.  Harrison pioneered and hosted the first-ever “out” morning drive-time talk radio show (from Hollywood) for Sirius Satellite Radio and most recently hosted a weekday talk show on Clear Channel’s KTLK in Los Angeles. He currently hosts “Think Green”—a star-studded daily feature promoting a Greener planet, syndicated on stations across the US and Canada and appears regularly on LA Public Radio as well as WABC (NY) and KABC (LA).

Millions have enjoyed his unique brand of news, commentary and satire, earning him Vanderbilt University's distinguished Siegenthaler Award for integrity, intelligence and courage in the field of journalism, the Sigma Delta Chi award—the highest honor bestowed for public service by the Society of Professional Journalists, and top honors—two years' running—from American Women in Radio & Television for exposé reporting and investigative journalism.  Harrison’s been acknowledged by the Board of Governors of the Achievement in Radio Awards, was nominated “Best New Talent in Chicago”, has received 1st place honors for “Best Commentary” from the Associated Press, and was recently honored by the UN, followed by the Mayor and City Council of West Hollywood/Los Angeles for his Environmental and Peace work.From political conspiracies to pop culture, Harrison focuses on the distinctive intelligence, talent, humor and personality of his guests--from A-list to Black list—pulling out their very best.  Harrison facilitates a broadcast like a master pyrotechnician, taking his audience places they never dreamed possible.
