Why would this admission come out at this time? Why not acknowledge or admit to being involved when the news of the Flame attack first hit the main stream media?
Keeping in mind much of the news makes it's way to the audience when it is necessary or required.
It seems admission of US and Israeli responsibility was leaked to coincide with news of failed talks with Iran.
These talks were doomed to fail. They were intended to fail. The US and Israel did not want any kind of agreement. They want war.
The admission of responsibility timed to coincide with failed talks will excuse the US and Israel for their cyber attack. Really a cyber warfare attack. Which makes Israel and the US the instigators of war.
Since the talks have failed... 'they simply had to do it'.
Really, the US and Israel were forced to take such extreme actions against an unreasonable Iran.
That's how it works in the world of perception management
Iran, world powers fail to reach Moscow breakthrough
Iran and world powers Tuesday failed to narrow differences over the Iranian nuclear drive after bruising talks in Moscow held amid threats of a crippling oil embargo or even military action against Tehran.
However the Iranian negotiating team and the world powers led by EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton succeeded in keeping talks alive by agreeing a process for future meetings. (The EU is being conciliatory, recall how that inflamed the psychotic John Bolton ?)
The United States and Israel have repeatedly refused to rule out air strikes on Iran against its nuclear programme, which the West suspects is a cover for a bid for nuclear weapons, and the Moscow meeting was seen as a crucial last test for the viability of talks.
Of course the US and Israel refused to rule out attacking, this is after all what they want.
"The fact is that they (Iran) did begin to address the substance for the first time but there is a very long way to go."
Jalili called the talks "more serious and more realistic" than the rounds held earlier this year in Istanbul and last month in Baghdad.
He also floated the possibility that the supply of nuclear fuel from abroad could form part of a deal in the future.
But in an indication that Iran still wanted to enrich uranium to 20 percent, he said: "We insisted on the fact that the enrichment of uranium for peaceful purposes to all levels is the right of the Islamic Republic."
Jalili also warned that the widescale oil export sanctions that the European Union and the United States were now both set to impose against Iran risked derailing the negotiating process.
"If a path against this approach is started and certain actions disturb this approach, it will definitely affect the result of these talks," he said.
There will be no more negotiating. These negotiations were theatre. Set up to fail.
A senior US administration official, speaking on condition of anonymity after the talks, said that there would be no softening of the sanctions against Tehran.
The stamina-busting final day negotiations were also marked by bilateral talks involving Iran and Russia which apparently stepped in during the afternoon to ensure the negotiating process stayed on track.
