there are some who believe he lied - or at least was evasive - in his sworn testimony before congress
if he is seen as being hardnosed on terrorists, then some might reconsider their opposition to his presence
and he may have lied about the saudi murder plot like lies have been told on those 200 other "terrorists" who turned out not to be actual terrorists [that link has been provided twice; don't think it is needed again]
my biggest reason for doubting holder/government about this is that nothing other than his verbal communication, has been shared with the American people so that we can see for ourselves how deeply iran is connected in this plot
my belief is that government would make a point for us all to see the smoking gun evidence it had ... if it had any
what we know we have is a naturalized citizen from iran who has confessed according to holder, but who will plead not guilty according to his attorney:[same cite]... In fact, Arbabsiar's lawyer, Sabrina Shroff, said her client will plead not guilty if indicted. Apparently he denies involvement despite Holder claiming he confessed. ...
the accused is a failed business owner who recently lost his house to foreclosure and his wife soon after. that is who has been trotted out as the plot mastermind
so, holder, "show me the money"
let me see for myself that there is a direct link to iran. and the evidence better be more credible than that crap Powell took before the UN to insist iraq had WMDs
this is more of the same
the only difference from the days of alberto gonzales is that we no longer have some government official also screaming we are now in code red, orange or yellow
How is that the release of these suspected then vindicated terrorists, that were captured, held, tried and released by the USG, has anything at all to do with this case?
