    Re: Iran accused over Washington terror plot

    So...what does the Obama administration gain by faking an Iranian plot to employ a WMD on US soil aimed at killing a Saudi official?

    Two things I've learned in life that are 100% true.

    One, never take govt reports face value.

    Two, fat chicks are surprisingly deceptive on dating websites.

    A stronger case for international sanctions (more of them) and a stronger case for striking Iran (military).

    So much for that Nobel peace prize, eh?

    I'm kinda surprised (maybe I missed it) that no-one thinks its a smoke screen for fast and furious.

    So far I've heard, "Iran isn't that clumsy", parroted fairly regular. On what evidence is that claim being based?
    Certain? I don't know that anyone is certain of anything. But that's the point. Most are just saying we should not take government claims at face value. And we shouldn't.

    Like I said, if they have evidence, we will eventually see it. The whole thing sounds a bit fishy to me though. That's why I'm wondering if the dog's tail will soon be getting a bit sore.
    No matter who makes the claim, there is no reason to accept the claim without actual evidence. It is as fishy as we had under Bush. We should always question no matter who makes the claim. Evidence should always be the critieria, and we should not be too willing to believe.

    The transferred money isn't evidence?

    ... post-9/11, entrapment by FBI plants led to prosecutions of over 200 individuals on bogus terrorism related charges. Washington highlights them as proof of foiling plots that, in fact, never existed.

    Nearly always innocent Muslims are targeted for their faith and ethnicity for political advantage. Major media scoundrels regurgitate official lies, pretending they're accurate accounts of foiled plots.

    That none ever succeeded is reason enough to suggest none existed, but media reports leave that unexplained, let alone the implausibility of some charges.

    They included blowing up Chicago's Sears Tower, destroying New York landmarks, targeting US soldiers at Fort Dix, NJ, US marines at Quantico, VA, downing National Guard aircraft with stinger missiles, and a Pakistan ambassador's with a surface to air one.

    Not a shred of evidence provided proof, just the word of FBI informants well paid to entrap and lie, then get America's media to repeat them without questioning the validity of any charges.

    The likelihood that any country, let alone Iran, would plan terror plots on US soil is preposterous on its face. Cui bono is issue one. Clearly, Iran has nothing to gain and everything to lose by plotting what Holder charged. ...

    Holder said that there was evidence of a money transfer from Iran. I watched him say it.

    See above. Remember, being told something isn't the same as something being true. Powell presented a lot of **** at the UN, remember? It was nonsense, and rightly questioned by many, but the willing believed all the same.
