Someone I admire says "Strange days, dontcha think?"
Strange days indeed. How hard would it be for a deeply embedded and well-backed intelligence agency to convince a couple crazies that they were high
ranking Iranian government officials? The sad part is the alleged terrorists could completely believe what they are saying.
The very first thing I thought when reading this, and as other have said, why would Iran do this? It is an act of war.. Do you think Iran believes
they are up to the task? Should we assume Iran is run by idiots or that Iran has something up it's sleeve? If you believe neither of those the only
other option is to consider that Iran is not behind this plot.
If that's the case then who? It might not necessarily be the US Government.
Some of the statements from the OP's source are really shocking.
New York Rep. Peter King, speaking to CNN’s Erin Burnett, said the alleged Iranian plot should be taken seriously by U.S. officials. “This
would have been an act of war [if carried out]. It has raised this relationship, between the United States and Iran, to a very precipitous level,”
King said. “This violates all international norms, it violates all international laws. ... We can’t allow this to go without a strong reaction,"
King said, who chairs the Homeland Security Committee," King said. After saying he would back whatever action the administration might take, King
said “we should at least consider a sign of military action. ... something to indicate how seriously we're taking this." He added that U.S.
officials should even consider removing Iranian diplomats from the country. “I think everything should be kept on the table.”
This from the Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee! To the earlier poster who said we're not going to war over these "small potatoes," you
might want to reconsider that statement.
This whole thing stinks of setup to me. I think this is really bad news.
