CNN: FBI, DEA thwart terror plot in U.S. involving Iran, officials say

Timing?

Obama was told about the proposed "terror plot" in June:

Officials said that the Saudi ambassador, Adel Al-Jubeir, was never in danger. President Barack Obama was briefed in June about the alleged plot and through a spokesman expressed gratitude for it being disrupted.

Call me cynical but with Obama's rating low as they are--I'm not surprised by the delayed announcement of this alleged plot. Can someone please tell Obama that he wasn't elected to maintain the policies of his predecessor, George W. Bush, but to bring about CHANGE. 

Iran swiftly rejected the allegation. "The Islamic Republic of Iran has rejected U.S. accusations of the country plotting to assassinate the Saudi envoy to Washington as a prefabricated scenario," state English language Press TV said, without elaborating or giving a source.


John Glasser writes:

The Justice Department on Tuesday made vague accusations that “factions of the Iranian government” conspired in a plot to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador to the United States.
Manssor Arbabsiar, a 56-year-old US citizen who also holds an Iranian passport, was charged along with Gholam Shakuri, whom Eric Holder said in a press conference Tuesday was a Quds Force member still residing in Iran.
The media was quick to describe the news as “an Iranian terrorist plot,” but the case appears to be another FBI sting operation and perhaps entrapment of a disgruntled citizen. Asked whether the plot was even known about by the top echelons of the Iranian government, Holder said the Justice Department was not making that accusation.

So let me get this straight, if anyone holding a US passport commits a crime in a foreign country, for arguments sake we'll say illegal border crossing, they should be treated as US spies even if they aren't being directed by the US government? 


Iran releases US spies on bail


Surprise, surprise...

Holder said the US government would be taking unspecified action, perhaps additional economic sanctions, against the Iranian government as early as Tuesday afternoon. Despite this – plus attempts by the media to imply this plot was directed by the Iranian government – no direct accusations or evidence has been brought forth that the Iranian government was complicit, or even knowledgeable, of the plot.  


For years now, a concerted covert US campaign of cyber-terrorism, commercial sabotage, targeted assassinations, and proxy wars has apparently been under way in Iran. Additionally, US-supported Israeli agents have admitted to committing terrorist acts, including assassinations, on people inside Iran.


The US is currently imposing harsh economic sanctions against Iran and has been garrisoning Iran’s surroundings with war, occupation, military bases, provocative naval activity, and rival client states.

S. M. Asadabadi wrote in The Secret War: The New Neo-Conservatism:

It should not come as a surprise to see the once leftist, President Obama, move increasingly towards the right. The advocate of “change” who promoted peace and regression of American preemptive wars is a man of broken promises. As the 2012 presidential elections approach,  a more aggressive Obama has emerged.

Oh so true, I wonder what Obama would do next...

Of course the US will deny it and the media will cast doubt on Iranian media.

Breaking news - it looks like Israel, her Neocons, and her Israeli Lobby have just been exposed for trying to run a 'False Flag Operation' against Iran (as well as the US) for the benefit of the Israelis

The Israeli Lobby appears to have tried to use an Iranian MEK agent (closely tied to the Neocons and Israel) as the 'Iranian' end of the plot against the Saudi Ambassador

This is similar to what Israel and her Neocons did when they pulled off the false flag operation against the US that got us into the Iraq War using the Neocon's 'Curveball' and the Neocon's 'Yellowcake Uranium Fraud' which they used to lie us into Iraq, using Feith's Office of Special (Mossad) Plans

Apparently the Iranian Quds force guy Gholam Shakuri has been visiting 'Neocon and Israel Central' at the MEK Camp in Kurdistan-Iraq (Camp Ashraf ) as well as in WASHINGTON

It's funny how a few days ago Saudi said they would not tolerate protests during Hajj. This is a direct reference to Iran.

What would Iran gain from killing the Saudi Ambassador on US soil? What's the motive?
