U.S. foils alleged Iranian plot to kill Saudi ambassador

Planned attack on Saudi officials in the U.S. also included bombing Washington embassy


U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said on Tuesday that federal authorities had disrupted a plot by the Iranian government to kill Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the U.S. and to bomb the Saudi embassy in Washington. Holder said the two men charged in the alleged plot have links to the secretive Quds Force, a division of Iran’s elite Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps that has carried out operations in other countries. Court documents suggest the assassination would have been carried by men with ties to a Mexican drug cartel, but who were in fact confidential sources for the Drug Enforcement Agency. Manssor Arbab Arbabsiar, who was arrested September 29, and Gholam Shakuri, who remains at large, have been charged with conspiracy to murder a foreign official; conspiracy to engage in foreign travel and use interstate and foreign commerce facilities in the commission of murder-for-hire; conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction. specifically explosives; and conspiracy to commit an act of international terrorism.

U.S. foils alleged Iranian plot to kill Saudi ambassador

  1. they were behind too many terrorist acts and bombs . 
    1-United States had evidence of direct Iranian involvement in the act in Khobar Towers where19 U.S. servicemen and one Saudi[1] were killed and 372 of many nationalities were wounded.( wikipedia ) 
    2-Osama bin Laden’s closest relatives are living in a secret compound in Iran. (timesonline)
    3-  Since 2001, Iran has appeared a somewhat reluctant host for senior al-Qaeda operatives who fled there after the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan, keeping them under tight restrictions. ( usa today ) 
    4- The most lethal weapon directed against American troops in Iraq is an explosive-packed cylinder that United States intelligence asserts is being supplied by Iran. ( the new york times)
    5-Hezbollah receives military training, weapons, and financial support from Iran.( wikipedia ) 

  2. Iran is becoming a national threat , we must act immediately and attack iran

  3. Iran=supporting terrorist activity
    Iranian people=losers who cant do shit

  4. nuke iran

  5. Information coming from the inteligence services yanquies do not have any credibility.  They have demonstrated their cunning and hypocrisy too many times to be believed.   After ten years, no explanation on building #7 “collapsing” (???) has been given, and same for the pentagon ‘disappearance of the debris of the boeing (my eye).  History is not taught in usa because people may realize what’s going on.  For a start I would suggest to learn about the war with Spain.  It started with an american ship bombed in Havanna’s harbour.  The captain wrote a book after retirintg, telling he was ordered to do it…  No difference with every single war they undertook.  By the way, have they found the weapons of mass destruction in Irak?  Probably only the chemical and biological weapos that Rumsfeld brought them during the war with Iran…
    Shame on all of them.

    • You hit the nail right on the head, it is unfortunate that the few people whom we trust to lead us are really puppets of the Illuminati, and they certainly never have our best interests at heart. The evidence is overwhelming, when will we learn. Oh Iraq!  that was because Saddam refused to ad-hear to their plans for him and of course the oil, what weapons?. Saddam had backed off from nuclear after the Israelis bombed his plants. I believe we need to completely dismantle government in its current form and return us to when people had real freedom. Canada at least tries at times to steer clear of the USA juggernaut, our banking seems to have avoided this US model…..even Afghanistan was only because the nasty Taliban had taken control of all of the Opium industry  Oh! and they don’t care about their shameful tactics or us!

  6. Anyone who believes this story has mush for brains.

    But then, I see the mush-for-brains crowd is already here.
