Who knew USA was being invaded by 100s of Iranian Hezbollah? Just ask Rep. Peter King
I could barely believe my eyes and ears when I stumbled onto this happening
on C-Span today. Un-freaking-believable foaming at the mouth hyperventelating
about "Hundreds of Hezbollah" spying and plotting terrorist attacks in the USA
"in retaliation for the sanctions against Iran".
This is a naked & desperate attempt to gin up the public to be A-OK with
attacking Iran, "before they strike on US soil". Sound familiar?
Nice set-up for the next false flag, is what this sounds like to me, so
King and his ilk can say "SEE!! We tried to warn you!! ... Now let's hurry up
and bomb the shit out of Iran .. what more 'proof' do we need?"

Peter King: Iran May Have 'Hundreds' Of Hezbollah Agents In U.S.

-- Iranian-backed Hezbollah agents, not al Qaeda operatives, may pose the
greatest threat on U.S. soil as tensions over Iran's suspected nuclear weapons
program ratchet up, according to the Republican chairman of the House
Committee on Homeland Security.
"As Iran moves closer to nuclear weapons and there is increasing concern
over war between Iran and Israel, we must also focus on Iran's secret
operatives and their number one terrorist proxy force, Hezbollah, which we
know is in America," said New York Rep. Peter King at a Wednesday hearing
of his committee.
The hearing, which featured former government officials and the director of
intelligence analysis for the New York Police Department, follows a foiled plot
to assassinate the Saudi ambassador in Washington, D.C., and testimony
by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper in late January that Iran's
leaders are "more willing to conduct an attack inside the United States in
response to real or perceived U.S. actions that threaten the regime."
Opening the hearing, King said, "We have a duty to prepare for the worst,"
warning there may be hundreds of Hezbollah operatives in the United States,
including 84 Iranian diplomats at the United Nations and in Washington who,
"it must be presumed, are intelligence officers."
But Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson, the ranking Democrat on the
committee, said he was concerned that the testimony he was about to hear
was based on outdated information and not current intelligence. He noted
that "no current federal officials" were asked to testify on Wednesday.
"A word of caution is in order," Thompson said. "When we examine our
relationship with another country, we cannot look at any particular moment
in time and pretend that it tells the whole story. We cannot view the politics,
history and culture of any other country clearly by seeing a snapshot version."
Referencing Clapper's earlier testimony, Thompson said the director of
national intelligence should be called in for a classified hearing, but added,
"We should not engage in a public discussion that creates fear and delivers

2. There are two idiot Republcans named King in Congress, Peter and Steve. I'm sure their
average i.q. is quite low. It's funny, Peter King didn't seem to mind terrorism when it was done by the Irish Republican Army.
