US ties Iran to plot to assassinate Saudi diplomat

WASHINGTON (AP) – The Obama administration on Tuesday accused agents of the Iranian government of being involved in a plan to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the thwarted plot would further isolate Tehran.

Two people, including a member of Iran’s special operations unit known as the Quds Force, were charged in New York federal court. Justice Department officials say they were working with a person they thought was an associate of a Mexican drug cartel to target the Saudi diplomat, Adel Al-Jubeir. But their contact was an informant for the Drug Enforcement Agency who told U.S. authorities about all their planning.

FBI Director Robert Mueller said many lives could have been lost in the plot to kill the ambassador with bombs in the U.S. But Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney in Manhattan, said no explosives were actually placed and no one was in any danger because of the informant’s cooperation with authorities.

Attorney General Eric Holder said the U.S. would hold Iran accountable. Clinton told The Associated Press the plot would further isolate Iran as the United States put those allegedly involved under sanctions.

Does anyone feel just a little bit skeptical, a tiny bit suspicious that as Eric Holder is about to be subpoenaed in the Fast and Furious debacle, as Obama and his *house of cards* is so close to falling, that all of a sudden there’s an evil plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador brought up and SPLATTERED all over the news?


Manssor Arbabsiar, a 56-year-old U.S. citizen who also holds an Iranian passport, was charged along with Gholam Shakuri, who authorities said was a Quds Force member and is still at large in Iran. The complaint filed in federal court says Arbabsiar confessed that his cousin, Abdul Reza Shahlai, was a high-ranking member of the Quds Force who told him to hire someone in the narcotics business to target Al-Jubeir and that Shakuri was his cousin’s deputy who helped provide funding for the plot.

OK, so, how about this? Manssor Arbabsiar was arrested Sept. 29 and has been in custody since then. That’s 2 weeks that Obama and Holder have had this guy *on ice*, and all of a sudden, TODAY, it’s a BIG story?

Do you still think it’s not a ploy by Holder and Obama, the coincidence of this release being made as Holder is about to be subpoenaed and only a few hours before the nation sees the next GOP debate?

Not an attempt to get Holder’s name OFF of the front page and divert attention to a plot that is designed to scare the hell out of American citizens? Seriously?

Folks, there are NO coincidences in the Obama administration. There is a method to their madness and a rhyme for every reason. These people don’t do anything if there’s not a very good reason to do so, and protecting Holder, Obama, Clinton and God knows how many others in that evil regime is their *Job 1*.

Justice Department officials say Arbabsiar approached the DEA informant in Mexico to ask about his knowledge of explosives for a plot to blow up the Saudi embassy in Washington. But through subsequent conversations in English, secretly recorded for U.S. authorities, Arbabsiar offered $1.5 million for the death of the ambassador, perhaps at a purported favorite restaurant of his despite the possibility of mass casualties.

Asked whether the plot was blessed by the top echelons of the Iranian government, Holder said the Justice Department was not making that accusation.

Well of course Holder isn’t going to to make an accusation against Iran, if the USA were to come out against Iran, in ANY way, some would assume that the USA might support the Israelis. We can’t have anyone thinking that this might be a good time to take Israel off of the leash and let them take some sort of action against Iran now can we?

Arbabsiar did not know he was trying to hire a DEA informant to carry out the plot, prosecutors said. Posing as an associate of a Mexican drug cartel, the informant met with Arbabsiar several times in Mexico, authorities said. The price tag was $1.5 million and Arabsiar made a $100,000 down payment wired from an overseas account.

You have got to admit, it IS pretty damned funny when an Iranian looking for a *hit man* just happens to stumble upon a DEA informant and lays it all out to him. Pretty ironic in my opinion.

    A sense of irony has been completely absent from the Obama administration – no reason for it to surface at this point. As clumsy as this inept group has proven to be, it should be no great surprise if this particular situation develops the sour odor of entrapment. Then again, the lamestream media would never mount that attack, would they?

    The probable developing scenario will most likely be that after a great gnashing of teeth and beating of breasts a few milquetoast statements of censure and one or two toothless sanctions will be issued by the State Department, leaving the very real and dangerous problems posed by Iraq unaffected.

    Disaster draws ever more near due to the actions of the Presidential Pretender. Can we escape their ramifications even if this loser is booted from the White House?

    One has to wonder just how long after we pull out of Iraq it will be till Iran takes the place over lock, stock, and barrel…

    Many of us identified Iran as the true threat in the region, on a national level, many years ago.

    I am of the mind that we should just go ahead and say to Israel how nice the place would look if it were reduced to radioactive glass.
