===Plan to Nuke Iran===
In August 2005, Giraldi wrote that US Vice President [[Dick Cheney]] had instructed [[STRATCOM]] to prepare "a contingency plan to be employed in response to another 9/11-type terrorist attack on the United States... [including] a large-scale air assault on Iran employing both conventional and tactical [[nuclear weapons]] ... not conditional on [[Iran]] actually being involved in the act of [[terrorism]] directed against the United States." The reason cited for the attack to use [[mini-nuke]]s is that the targets are ''hardened or are deep underground'' and would not be destroyed by non-nuclear warheads.<ref name="amcongiraldi">Philip Giraldi, [http://www.amconmag.com/2005_08_01/article3.html "Deep Background"], ''[[The American Conservative]]'', August 1, 2005.</ref><ref>[[Tom Engelhardt]], [http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/02/16/opinion/main2486332.shtml "Thelma and Louise Imperialism"], [[CBS]] News, from ''[[The Nation]]'' article "Reckless Bush Putting U.S. On Edge Over Iran", February 17, 2007.</ref>
===Fake Yellowcake===
In 2005 Giraldi also wrote that the Italian Niger/yellowcake documents claiming an [[Iraq]]i interest in purchasing uranium from Niger were forgeries created by former CIA officers and [[Michael Ledeen]]. (See [[Niger uranium forgeries]].) Giraldi also wrote that officials in the [[Office of Special Plans]] working for [[Undersecretary of Defense for Policy]] [[Douglas Feith]] had forged the "[[Habbush letter]]" allegedly written by [[Saddam Hussein]]'s intelligence director regarding shipping the uranium.<ref name="Porter">[[Gareth Porter]], [http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2009/12/28-6 "US Intelligence Found Iran Nuke Document Was Forged"], [[Inter Press Service]], December 28, 2009</ref><ref>Terry M.

===On Operation Gladio/B===
Phil Giraldi commented in 2008 that ''"Most Americans have never heard of Sibel Edmonds, and if the U.S. government has its way, they never will. The former FBI translator turned whistleblower tells a [[Gladio/B|chilling story of corruption at Washington’s highest levels]] — sale of nuclear secrets, shielding of terrorist suspects, illegal arms transfers, narcotics trafficking, money laundering, espionage. She may be a first-rate fabulist, but Edmonds’ account is full of dates, places, and names. And if she is to be believed, a treasonous plot to embed moles in American military and nuclear installations and pass sensitive intelligence to Israeli, Pakistani, and Turkish sources was facilitated by figures in the upper echelons of the State and Defense Departments. Her charges could be easily confirmed or dismissed if classified government documents were made available to investigators."'' No such documents have been released.<ref>http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/found-in-translation/</ref>
