I remember the wikileaks cable about Hilary Clinton telling US Diplomats to spy on the UN, and collect DNA and other info.

Why would Hilary Clinton tell US Diplomats to spy on the UN, and collect DNA? i mean you just said collect the DNA of those diplomats, that isnt very human.
edit on 21-5-2011 by Agent_USA_Supporter because: (no reason given)
Top secret cables revealed that Mrs Clinton, the Secretary of State, even ordered diplomats to obtain DNA data – including iris scans and fingerprints - as well as credit card and frequent flier numbers.

I have absolutely no doubt they are spying. In which case, Iran has the right to do all they can to stop it and it's the USA's fault for trying to instigate conflict.
