Counter Information

Global Research, August 22, 2015

132053-400x250First published in July 2015. Of utmost relevance to the ongoing debate on the agreement with Iran pertaining to its nuclear program.

On July 3, 2015, presidential aspirant Hillary Clinton addressed a hand-picked audience at a Dartmouth College campaign event. She lied calling Iran an “existential threat to Israel… I hope we are able to get a deal next week that puts a lid on (its) nuclear weapons program.”
