Iranian Power Plant Explosion – Who did it?

Claiming full function was restored in two hours, photos of the latest explosion in Iran suggest, uh, not quite. By the videos and from his experience, Brad Johnson suggests it was strategic and put together by a trained, funded, well-organized and very serious group. Is it Mossad? Is it an Iranian opposition group? The former CIA Operative and President of Americans for Intelligence Reform weighs in on possible answers. A link to a previous article on the subject is below.


brad johnson it’s july 20th
00:03
and the weather in iran continues to be
00:05
kind of balmy
00:07
i’ve noticed that uh almost every day
00:09
something that looks kind of strategic
00:12
catches on fire blows up
00:15
do you know anything about that is this
00:17
a mech thing is this a
00:18
mossad thing what’s going on yeah it’s
00:21
an
00:22
interesting question i i would say that
00:24
the the final answer is still
00:26
out you know we don’t know for sure
00:28
who’s behind all this so
00:30
although i’m beginning to suspect but uh
00:32
what happened is they had a power plant
00:34
with a huge explosion
00:36
and there were some i don’t know the
00:38
origins of the photographs but it was
00:40
out in the press and had some overhead
00:42
photography of the blast there
00:44
and it was a major explosion i mean you
00:46
can see
00:47
uh you know the black marks moving
00:50
outward from the epicenter that was
00:52
inside one of these buildings
00:54
and i mean it they blew the living
00:56
daylights out of that thing it was it
00:58
was definitely gone so this is not
01:01
you know and it was well placed damaged
01:03
from inside the middle of the building
01:04
like i said you can tell by looking at
01:06
it where the blast originated and how it
01:08
went outward and
01:09
everything inside that building is gone
01:11
now the iranians are saying that within
01:14
you know 15 minutes they had power back
01:16
online and stuff like that and
01:17
uh you know they would have had other
01:19
sources of electricity that would have
01:21
gone into the system but
01:22
i guarantee the electricity was not
01:24
coming out of that building
01:26
within you know 15 minutes of the
01:28
explosion that thing was
01:29
was done and gone the reason i find some
01:33
of these
01:33
this this blast interesting is two
01:36
things one
01:38
the enormity of it i mean this was a
01:40
well-positioned well-placed
01:42
you know like i say middle of a building
01:44
not just like pushed up against the wall
01:46
from the outside so somebody had access
01:49
into this thing and put up
01:51
a big enough explosive device in there
01:53
to really
01:54
take that building out so that shows a
01:58
measure of confidence and access
02:00
that’s pretty interesting the second
02:02
aspect of it
02:04
is now we have a string this is
02:06
something we did a previous interview on
02:07
and there had been i think one or two
02:09
explosions at that point
02:10
originally a clinic and then uh another
02:13
power a source of power power plant
02:15
and so now we’ve got what 345
02:19
power generating and one nuclear power
02:21
plant and different things like that hit
02:23
we still
02:23
that medical center was the only one uh
02:25
there’s been a missile base hit
02:27
so there’s a number of different things
02:30
but all of them are strategic in nature
02:32
the one maybe exception was that
02:34
hospital but
02:36
that hospital i believe was used to
02:37
treat uh high
02:39
high-ranking uh iranian officials
02:42
and i’m i suspect i don’t know but there
02:45
were i think 17 people
02:46
killed and i suspect that there was
02:49
somebody
02:50
specifically targeted that they were
02:51
perfectly willing to kill everybody in
02:53
that clinic
02:54
because it was who it serviced but
02:57
that some of someone in that group and
03:00
we don’t have the list of names
03:01
who was killed yet but i believe someone
03:04
in there was targeted
03:05
now clearly at this point when you have
03:07
four or five
03:08
energy uh generating plants bombed
03:11
and you know you the iranians are saying
03:14
stuff like oh there was no bomb blast
03:15
there that didn’t happen so they’re
03:16
denying that these things
03:18
are even going on even though
03:19
photographs of the blown up places are
03:21
getting out
03:22
and they’re saying oh it’s gas leak
03:24
different things of that nature so
03:26
the iranians lying about it and and the
03:28
series of bomb blasts and the size of
03:30
them and how they’re placed and all of
03:32
that
03:32
and this is pretty clearly a a fairly
03:35
serious
03:36
bombing campaign paid for engineered
03:40
and they’re these people appear to be
03:42
pretty well trained
03:44
to go do what they’re doing so how
03:46
they’re detonating them and all of those
03:48
details we don’t know yet
03:50
but uh just the effectiveness of it is a
03:53
strong indicator that this is a
03:55
a pretty well put together program now
03:57
uh
03:58
some of the people are beginning to
03:59
speculate that this is israel
04:02
uh back doing this and i’ve seen a lot
04:05
of kind of odd speculation this way or
04:07
the other and
04:08
they’re trying to slip all this in to
04:10
damage the iranians as much as they can
04:12
because they’re worried that trump’s
04:14
going to lose the upcoming election and
04:16
that
04:16
this is something biden would never
04:18
continence that he would not
04:20
allow israel to strike against iran in
04:22
any way
04:23
and so they would be doing it with some
04:26
plausible deniability of fig leaf of
04:28
cover if you will
04:29
by by having uh surrogate groups do this
04:32
so some sort of
04:34
iranian opposition group now that
04:37
strikes me as a
04:38
fairly likely scenario there’s others
04:40
that could be too it could be
04:42
a an anti-regime iranian
04:45
group without israeli participation or
04:49
backing as well but
04:50
if it’s the israeli-backed group that’s
04:53
anti-regime
04:54
i don’t think it’s israeli agents
04:56
slipping in and doing this directly
04:59
if they’re involved it would be through
05:00
training and backing in materials to
05:02
to an inside group
05:08
regardless of who’s who’s doing it i
05:10
think that one of the reasons it’s
05:12
almost certainly a
05:13
a resistance group that of iranians
05:16
doing it
05:17
is because of the fabulous access
05:19
they’ve shown by getting
05:20
into these buildings and into these
05:22
bases and into the clinics
05:24
like i say this isn’t just like drive up
05:26
a car park it against the building and
05:29
run away and it blows up
05:30
they’re going inside these places and
05:33
placing these
05:34
uh devices explosive devices so a very
05:37
strong indicator of
05:39
organization and training and some money
05:41
and all that stuff
05:42
so somebody’s paying for this it’s
05:44
almost certainly an
05:45
outside force because the economy of
05:47
iran’s not good
05:49
so that’s why i say my kind of
05:52
first guess would be this is probably is
05:55
an israeli mossad
05:56
uh backed operation using a resistance
06:00
group
06:00
that they’ve teamed up with inside iran
06:03
and i think they would be
06:04
they’re just no question that iran is a
06:08
big intelligence target for mossad
06:10
because of the threat that they
06:12
represent to israel so
06:14
it’s been a place where they’ve been
06:15
working for us for years
06:17
decades trying to put together teams so
06:19
it looks like they’ve got some
06:22
active measures teams that they’ve put
06:24
together and trained through the years
06:26
now starting to pull off these
06:27
explosions that’s sort of my
06:29
guess a like i say there are some other
06:31
reasonable scenarios where the
06:33
israelis wouldn’t be involved but if i
06:35
were to bet money on it i bet it’s the
06:37
mossad
06:37
operation with uh with an inside
06:40
train well looking at some of the
06:44
targets that i’ve seen listed in
06:46
you know public source media it looks
06:49
like
06:49
there’s been an effort to pick things
06:52
that would limit their ability
06:53
to project force while actually not
06:56
really
06:57
doing much harm to the population
07:00
and that strikes me as being an israeli
07:02
modus operandi
07:04
agreed with the exception of the clinic
07:07
which is why i keep coming
07:09
circling back to that and saying i think
07:12
that that explosive device was targeting
07:14
someone i think they killed a particular
07:17
person
07:18
on purpose at that clinic if you ignore
07:21
that one
07:21
the rest of them are are like you say
07:24
they’re going into this building of a
07:25
power plant blowing it up
07:27
and they’re not really they’re not
07:28
trying to kill people they’re not going
07:30
to crowded train stations and blowing
07:32
them up
07:33
they’re going to power plants strategic
07:35
in value
07:36
but low in and casualties
07:40
so i i agree that that could be
07:43
uh an earmark of what you would expect
07:45
the mossad to do
07:47
but also it i think it would also be an
07:49
agreement with a
07:50
uh with an iranian internal group that’s
07:53
active
07:54
because uh they wouldn’t necessarily
07:56
want to kill a lot of their countrymen
07:58
they wouldn’t mind killing iranian
08:00
leadership
08:01
but not their own countrymen just in
08:03
general so it does
08:04
make sense in the scheme of things like
08:06
i said with the exception of the clinic
08:07
which is why i think that
08:09
that was a targeted more of an
08:10
assassination attempt
08:12
than anything else
