Iran: U.S. Increasing Psychological War 'Exponentially'

Iran's foreign minister told "NBC Nightly News" Wednesday that the United States has "exponentially" stepped up its "psychological warfare" against Iran.

The foreign minister, Manouchehr Mottaki, told NBC's Chief Foreign Correspondent Richard Engel that the U.S. has been feeding Iranian sources with false claims that an attack is "imminent." He said such information has been complete with plans, maps, and even dates of attacks that never take place.

Motttaki said in the past "month or two this propaganda has increased exponentially." He claimed that he doubts Israel is capable of attacking Iran due to its weakened political state in the aftermath of the 2006 battles with Hezbollah in Lebanon.

Still, he said, if the Jewish state were to attack, they "will regret" such a move.

In an ominous tone, he said Tehran would not show any distinction between an attack by Israel and the U.S., suggesting both will be targets of retribution by Iran.

Last week, a report in the New Yorker stated that the U.S. has appropriated $400 million for covert operations against Iran. And Israel disclosed it had engaged in long-range military exercises. Press reports said the Israeli military was preparing for an attack on Iran.
