Tuned in the TV- expecting to do my share of sacrificing by watching Barky’s Kabuki monologue on the “Jobs Bill.”
Imagine how surprised I was to see Holder on the screen. (Wonder if wonder boy is mad that Holder upstaged him?) Holder was announcing that an Iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador on American soil has been foiled! Ties to the Mexican drug cartels too! (Damn right you are detecting a cynical tone lol. My first thought was “Here comes the Holder rehab.)
Here is the BBC link
The US says it has broken up a major terror plot in which agents linked to Iran sought to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to Washington.
Mr Holder described the $1.5m (£960,000) assassination plot as being “conceived, sponsored and directed by Iran”, and said Tehran would be held accountable for its alleged involvement.
snipOn 24 May 2011 Mr Arbabsiar made contact with an informant for the US Drug Enforcement Agency, under the impression that he was an operative of a Mexican drugs cartel.
Over a series of meetings, details emerged of a conspiracy that involved members of the Iranian government to pay $1.5m for the assassination of Saudi Ambassador Adel al-Jubeir on US soil.
I was holding off posting this as Hillary is supposed to give a statement shortly. I will update if she speaks.
Secretary of State Clinton just gave a very brief statement and took no questions.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the U.S. is preparing new penalties against Iranians following the disruption of an alleged plot to assassinate a Saudi diplomat in the U.S.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Clinton said the Treasury Department soon would put more people under sanctions. She also predicted the plot would further isolate Iran.
Madmen- they seem to be breeding like roaches.
