    Iran accused over Washington terror plot

    The US says it has broken up a major terror plot in which agents linked to Iran sought to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the US and bomb the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Washington.
    This is breaking news, and Eric Holder will be holding a news conference shortly. Seems that the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Washington were about to be bombed.

    Article is here.

    in order to provoke an Israeli/American strike on Iranian nuclear facilities?

    I'm curious what the official Iranian reaction to this will be.

    I'm more curious about what the Saudi reaction to this will be.

    Probably too much to hope it'd be, "Thank you, U.S. intelligence. Here's 100 million barrels of free oil!"

    Coverage on the BBC: BBC News - Iran agents 'planned US terror attacks'
    Includes video of Eric Holder at press conference

    It is no secret that Iran is upset with Saudi Arabia both for its close relationship with the US and its perceived-as-too-soft posture toward the Palestinian-Israeli conflict over land and government.

    Re: Iran accused over Washington terror plot

    why would Iran risk a US military strike?

    it doesn't cost that much to drop a few bunker-busters.

    Not the first time Iran's elite military wing has gone after "enemy" diplomats on foreign soil. They are also the prime suspects in various embassy bombings worldwide, especially in those involving Israeli embassies.

    The guy in custody has supposedly confessed, is a high-ranking member of Qud (Iran's elite revolutionary guards) and can hopefully supply us with some top-notch intel.

    any chance he is just a defector, trying to exaggerate a possible threat in order to get on the good side of the DOD & CIA?
