I'm pretty sure our gov't saw no other way to do this at this time. They don't want an open war, we have 2 of those now. They are also probably figuring Israel can do it for us. So this would be the easiest way to try to stir things up in Iran.
Could this be disinfo? Sure. They have people in Iran also who aren't sheeple. A few brave souls may have decided they need to take radical action. We have far less insanity going on out in the open in the USA (as far as our govt., they pretend they have our interests at heart anyway) and people on this site are calling for revolt and revolution. So I would have to believe the oppressive atmosphere in Iran would have people doing the same things just in whispers in the dark. As we all know the USA will take advantage of a situation like that in a NY second. So yes, I believe this is very possible.
In 2003, the Defense Department began working with terrorist and dissident groups in an effort to destabilize Iran, bypassing traditional intelligence channels. One of the assets the Pentagon used was a terrorist organization known as Mujahedeen-e Khalq (MEK), which was being “run” in two southern regional areas of Iran, including a Shia region where a series of attacks in 2006 left many dead and hundreds injured.
...Congress agreed to a request from President Bush to fund a major escalation of covert operations against Iran, ... The covert activities involve support of the minority Ahwazi Arab and Baluchi groups and other dissident organizations.
"While our Democratic-led Congress claims to oppose the Bush Administration's reliance on military action and war in the Middle East, it appears they are actually partners in inciting a new war with Iran. For just as Congress is approving potentially disastrous resolutions calling for a blockade of Iran (H. Con. Res. 362 and S.Res.580), we now find out in the Washington Post that Congressional leaders have known about – and last year tacitly approved – the Bush Administration's secret plan to destabilize the Iranian government with $400 million for covert operations.

I live in America, and I speak the American language as good as anyone, I can tell you that that's the only correct way to put those words together. It makes no sense otherwise, it's not even gramatically correct.

Its funny - there are Drug commercials, where teens say "I was just having fun, it didnt hurt anyone," and then they show pictures of the murders and so on with drug money. They should make one that says "I was only paying my taxes," and then show the arming of terrorist groups.
