Prison Planet: A former US National Security Adviser has admitted that there are US intelligence agents on the ground inside Iran and says they should focus on influencing Iranian behaviour.
Brent Scowcroft the United States National Security Advisor under Presidents Gerald Ford and George H. W. Bush, also told Josh Rushing, the host of Al Jazeera’s programme Fault Lines, that aiding the protesters in Iran would provoke a more intense crackdown by the government in Tehran.
“An attempt to change the situation in Iran is likely to be turned against us and against the people who are demonstrating for more freedom.” Scowcroft said.
“Therefore I think we need to look at what we can do best, which is to try to influence Iranian behaviour in the region.” he added.
