U.S. Accuses Iran in Saudi Envoy Assignation Plot

Posted by Steve Markowitz on October 12, 2011

Yesterday Attorney General Eric Holder announced a murder plot to assassinate a Saudi Arabian diplomat on U.S. soil.  An incredible part of the announcement was the involvement of the Iranian government with Holder saying that the plot was “directed and approved by elements of the Iranian government and, specifically, senior members of the Quds Force” and that “high-up officials in those agencies, which is an integral part of the Iranian government, were responsible for this plot.”

The story gets more bizarre.  The United States has claimed that the Iranians engaged an Iranian-American used-car salesman to hire assassins from a Mexican drug cartel for $1.5 million.  In addition, the Los Zetas cartel was to bomb Israeli and Saudi embassies.  Finally, Iran’s Revolutionary Guards was to funnel opium from the Middle East to Mexico

There have been concerns expressed by some that Attorney General Holder made this announce at this time to take the heat off of Congress’s investigation of his involvement with “Fast and Furious”.  This was the lame plan implemented by US government that allowed thousands of weapons to be sold to Mexican drug cartels with American government approval.  While this Blog would like to give the Attorney General the benefit of doubt, the fact that this serious accusation was made without strong retaliatory diplomatic steps also being announced is curious.

Eric Holder’s involvement in Fast and Furious makes it impossible for him to be an effective Attorney General.  He should immediately resign or be removed from office.

As for Iran, should the US government be certain of the charges it levied against them, it should immediately expel all Iranian diplomats from the United States including those involved with the United Nations.
