‘WikiLeaks documents aim to save US’- Iran
“The WikiLeaks documents are a kind of public opinion engineering to save the catastrophic situation that the US has in the eyes of world nations,” IRIB website quoted Larijani as saying on Saturday
He said he has found “interesting” points through some 35 WikiLeaks documents he has read randomly.
“The documents were based (on the claimed fact) that US forces did not torture Iraqis themselves but merely observed the tortures,” he added.
“A study of the documents shows that they have been prepared somewhere else because we know that Americans, themselves, kill Iraqis. They enter homes of the innocent Iraqi people and slaughter them,” the Iranian official pointed out.
Larijani noted that the cables intend to tone the US crimes down, stressing, “It is obvious that the documents follow special objectives.”
He added that the cables include both “right and wrong” and therefore indicate an engineering of world public opinion.
“There is a chance that about 10 percent of the documents — like the ones on the embassies — are authentic, and even those are of ordinary value and do not contain anything unusual,” Larijani said.
He said the US government and Western countries have organized the WikiLeaks documents, adding, “They released the documents to reduce pressure exerted on them by world public opinion.”
