I am not buying this "Iranian Terror Plot" one bit
Advertisements [?]
As many others have pointed out, the so-called Iranian terror plot just doesn't make any sense. We're supposed to believe that Iranian intelligence would hire some bumbling Mexican drug cartel yahoos to carry out a terror plot on American soil, in Washington DC no less?

Many have proposed that the plot is merely to distract from the OWS protests going on throughout the nation. I'm sure those who orchestrated this are happy to see some of the attention shifted away.

However, I believe the real motivation is much more sinister and dangerous. It's no secret that many in this country and Israel would love to launch military actions against Iran over their alleged nuclear weapons program (another fabrication). Yet they know that taking direct action themselves has significant risks and drawbacks. What's their solution? To create an incident that would infuriate Saudi Arabia into doing their dirty work. Tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran have already been pretty high, it's no secret that these two countries despise each other. It would not surprise me at all for Israeli or American interests to create a false flag operation to goad the Saudis into attacking Iran.
