The semiofficial Fars News Agency reported today Iran would soon release a series of documents, including video and audio files, showing recent covert activities by the US against Iran and other countries in the region. Fars did not provide any more details on the alleged documents or the exact date of their release. On 3 November, Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, said in a speech in Tehran marking the anniversary of the US embassy takeover and hostage taking, that Iran is in possession of 100 recent documents on US covert activities whose publication would “embarrass America.”
In related news, Fars reported today that US recordings of phone conversations between the participants in the alleged plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to Washington must be fake. Fars said that Arbabsiar’s (the main suspect arrested in New York) phone conversations were with a man in Tehran identified as Qolam Shakuri who does not exist. The US has alleged that Shakuri is a member of IRGC Quds Force.
