Could be the next stage, it’s very risky creating false flags so perhaps saying they have disrupted attacks is a far safer route and gives the impression the governments are protecting the public. I don’t think it can be ruled out that It might of been a genuine attack but this certainly does seem like testing the water and gauging the US public’s reaction.

This sounds too much like a precursor to active strikes inside the Iranian border. I do not like where this may lead. I am very skeptical that any of this information coming out is in fact true. The US and Israel have been looking for ways to take out the Iranian uranium enrichment process for some time, and this just might be the window they use for justification.
Lets all hope that this plays out diplomatically, and not irrationally.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

This is the rhetoric to demonize Iran and set up an excuse to attack them. Yeah they had ties to Iran just like their was WMD's in Iraq and even though the supposed 9/11 hijackers were all Saudi Arabian we attacked Iraq and Afghanistan... You can't believe a word out of the governments mouth these days even if it was a credible threat. Sigh... Lets see we have three wars going now two for ten years and counting. We are multi trilions in debt and can't ever pay it off and we can somehow afford another war..Sigh!These people are insane psychopaths!

with talk of Iran organizing a terrorist attack in the USA. We should go read Executive Orders from Tom Clancy.
The main Premise is Iran moving to set up a United Islamic union ... such things ( Even an EBOLA attack on the uSA) are part of a bigger plan to push the USA in a specific direction

oh you wouldn't eh? Well I will a "false flag" is a good term and is used properly here on this matter, here is the term www.wanttoknow.info... form the link

False Flag Terrorism

"False flag terrorism" occurs when elements within a government stage a secret operation whereby government forces pretend to be a targeted enemy while attacking their own forces or people. The attack is then falsely blamed on the enemy in order to justify going to war against that enemy. Or as Wikipedia defines it:
there link not mine, just so you know.,and yes this could be one of them, but i think it would have causality's and destruction.


False flag operations are covert operations conducted by governments, corporations, or other organizations, which are designed to deceive the public in such a way that the operations appear as if they are being carried out by other entities. The name is derived from the military concept of flying false colors; that is, flying the flag of a country other than one's own. False flag operations are not limited to war and counter-insurgency operations, and have been used in peace-time; for example, during Italy's strategy of tension.
Ijust got a feeling that OWS is just this, why... of topic for a few words
(OWS is a good example of this to disorganized, and has no real issue other than OWS, if they were serious OWH 3 issues end the war, bring jobs back, end taxes.) back on track... If TPTB wanted war with Iran we would be, simple as that.Disgusting yes ...sadly true.

From what I've read, there is around 1 - 1.5 million Iranians living in the US and Los Angeles having the highest population of over 72,000. Im sure there is a percentage of Iranians living in the US that would be willing to defend there homeland if or when there ever was/is a war with Iran. Another use for Fema Camps??
Iran diaspora

Doesn't make sense to me. Why take out Adel A. Al-Jubeir, the Saudi Arabian Ambassador to the United States and and a former foreign policy advisor to King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz. I can't see Iran wanting to go to war with Saudi as well as USA.

Interesting to see where this goes.

You're wrong... No dog wagging here.

This really should have been kept from the press for a longer period. Too late.

Cat's out of the bag now.

I was just going to say the same thing. CNN did the story about how Holder and others are being subpoenaed for their involvment with fast and furious, then ten minutes later he is on tv playing hero?? Nah, not buying it either. Glad I'm not the only one that caught that one.

the deflection is complete this taking the heat off the adminstration all smoke and mirrors.

Sounds like B.S. to me. Any story that comes out of the Whitehouse should be scrutinized, especially when they uncover "terrorist plots" from countries like Iran who have enough problems. The USA and Israel are the ones who are in the habit of attacking countries, not Iran. This is to soften up the sheeple for a planned attack on Iran by the US and Israel. They have been leading up to it for a while now, it's only a matter of time.

ABC news shame on you for spreading this garbage! No one believes it! Okay, maybe a few people

If an independant, non state affiliated terrorist group can pull off attacks, and therefore have the funding for it, how in the world can Iran NOT afford it? Considering they fund HAMAS and Hezbollah, why is a plan like this suddenly out of their price range?

I will wait for more details before I come anywhere close to a conclusion on the whether this is US propaganda or a type of false flag, but how much do you think this sort of operation costs that you believe Iran could not afford it?

It was going to get reported anyways so why not be the first to break the news? Come on, now. I'm trying to inform the public, nothing more, nothing less.

If the US desires to start another war, or instigate another war with Iran, then not only will there be war on several fronts in the middle-east, but there will be civil war on the streets of America.

Everyone can say what they want about all Americans being dumb sheep doing whatever the government tells them. But I think a lot of people have had enough. Too many people are paranoid, and frustrated to be force-fed any crap this administration wants to feed them. They could Reichstag Times Square and say Iran did it, and there would be enough people to call BS once and for all, bringing all-out civil unrest or war to the streets of America.

Seriously, the people are tired, folks. Unless they plan on thermonuclear assaults, then this war-baiting isn't going to fly anymore, not until the people have a two-decade cool-down to get complacent again.

I just saw this story a few minutes ago and have been flipping through some news channels. Fox is saying that Holder said the US will "Hold Iran Accountable". Im not sure what they exactly means

ETA 2 - CNN is saying there were high-ranking members of the Quds force in cahoots with the operation.

Some info on the Quds

en.wikipedia.org...


The Quds Force (Persian: نیروی قدس, translit. Niru-ye Qods), (or Qods Force) is a special unit of Iran's Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (Revolutionary Guard). It has been described as "tasked with exporting" Iran's Islamic revolution,[1] or "responsible for extraterritorial operations" of the Revolutionary Guard.



The Quds Force reports directly to the Supreme Leader of Iran Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.


CNN is also saying that the suspect is saying that killing US senators was "acceptable" in the attempted attack.
