No One Is Buying Iranian Terror Allegations!!

Can you smell it??

  • Looks like the Illuminist US government is getting desperate. All their scams are falling apart. Their attempts at steering the OWS protests nation wide are failing. The sheeple are waking up and attacking the Illuminist central banking cartel: the FedRes snakehead that is screwing all humanity. The Illuminists are itching to start false flag terror attacks to launch their Satanic World War 3 Plan as a diversion and as a means of mass culling the sheeple.

    No One Is Buying Iranian Terror Allegations!

    Iran Terror Plot: No Evidence
    The day before Attorney General was subpoenaed about what he knew about the Department of Justice and Drug Enforcement Agency’s “Fast and Furious” operation to get weapons to Mexico’s largest drug cartel, the U.S. government announced that the Iranians planned to kill a Saudi ambassador on U.S. soil. And they said – you guessed it – that it was DOJ and DEA who broke up the plot.
    -
    But no one is buying it … not even the pro-war mainstream media. The New York Times notes in a post entitled “U.S. Challenged to Explain Accusations of Iran Plot in the Face of Skepticism”:
    -
    The Obama administration on Wednesday sought to reconcile what it said was solid evidence of an Iranian plot to murder Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the United States with a wave of puzzlement and skepticism from some foreign leaders and outside experts.
    -
    Senior American officials themselves were struggling to explain why the Quds Force, an elite international operations unit within Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, would orchestrate such a risky attack in so amateurish a manner.
    ***
    American officials offered no specific evidence linking the plot to Iran’s most senior leaders.
    ***
    Mr. Zarate and senior American officials said the assassination plan  did not have the hallmarks of a Quds operation. “It was very extreme  and very odd, but it was also very sloppy,” Mr. Zarate said. “If you  look at what they have done historically, they can put operatives on  their targets and execute. They usually don’t outsource, but keep things  inside a trusted network.”
    -
    One problem for President Obama and his administration is that since  American intelligence claims about Iraq’s illicit weapons proved false  in 2003, assertions by the United States about its adversaries have  routinely faced skepticism from other countries.       
    -
    “Of course, that is in people’s heads. Everyone is extremely skeptical  about U.S. intelligence revelations,” said Volker Perthes, an Iran  expert who is the director of the German Institute for International and  Security Affairs in Berlin.       
    -
    CNN notes the growing skepticism about the allegations. The Christian Science Monitor notes in an article entitled “Used-car salesman as Iran proxy? Why assassination plot doesn’t add up for experts”:
    -
    Specialists who have followed the Islamic Republic for years say that many details in the alleged plot just don’t add up. “It’s a very strange case, it doesn’t really fit Iran’s mode of operation,” says Alireza Nader, an Iran analyst at the [ultra-hawkish] Rand Corp. in Arlington, Va., and coauthor of studies about the Revolutionary Guard.
    ***
    “This [plot] doesn’t seem to serve Iran’s interests in any  conceivable way,” says Nader. “Assassinating the Saudi ambassador would  increase international pressure against Iran, could be considered an act  of war … by Saudi Arabia, it could really destabilize the government in Iran; and this is a political system that is interested in its own survival.”
    -
    Iran  has been trying to evade sanctions, strengthen relations with  non-Western partners, while continuing with its nuclear program, notes  Nader.
    -
    He says it is “difficult” to believe that either Qassim  Soleimani – the canny commander of the Qods Force – or Iran’s  deliberative supreme religious leader, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, would order such an attack that “would put all of Iran’s objectives and strategies at risk.”
    -
    That view has been echoed by many Iran watchers, who are raising doubts about the assassination plot allegations.
    -
    “This  plot, if true, departs from all known Iranian policies and procedures,”  writes Gary Sick, an Iran expert at Columbia University and principal  White House aide during the 1979 Iranian revolution and hostage crisis.
    -
    While  Iran may have many reasons to be angry at the US and Saudi Arabia, Mr.  Sick notes in a posting on the Gulf2000/Columbia experts list that he  moderates, “it is difficult to believe that they would rely on a  non-Islamic criminal gang to carry out this most sensitive of all  possible missions.”
    -
    Relying on “at least one amateur and a Mexican  criminal drug gang that is known to be riddled with both Mexican and US  intelligence agents” appears to be sloppy, adds Sick. “Whatever else  may be Iran’s failings, they are not noted for utter disregard of the  most basic intelligence tradecraft.”
    -
    The odd set of details means  that the usual cost-benefit calculation that experts often attribute to  Tehran’s decisionmaking does not apply here, says Muhammad Sahimi, in an analysis for the Tehran Bureau website.
    -
    At  a time when pressure is building on Iran over “gross human rights  violations,” sanctions are showing signs of working, Iran is “deeply  worried about the fate of its strategic partner in Syria … tensions with Turkey  are increasing … and a fierce power struggle is under way within  Iran,” says Mr. Sahimi, “it is essentially impossible to believe that  the IRI [Islamic Republic of Iran] would act in such a way as to open a  major new front against itself.”
