And We Actually Pay These Guys?: 'Intelligence' Chief Warns of Threat of Iran Attacks Inside US"

And We Actually Pay These Guys?: 'Intelligence' Chief Warns of Threat of Iran Attacks Inside US
by Dave Lindorff

Lets see now. James Clapper, the director of national intelligence who oversees both the FBI and the CIA, is warning that Irans leaders have changed their calculus and, as the Wall Street Journal puts it, now appear willing to conduct an attack within the US.

Speaking at a Join Intelligence Committee hearing in Congress, the aptly-named Clapper said that Iranian leaders, probably including Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei are now more willing to conduct an attack in the United States as a response to real or perceived actions that threaten the regime.

Well gee, that sure should come as a shocker.

Officials in the US, from the President on down to the clowns in Congress and campaigning for president , are all (with the notable exception of Rep. Ron Paul), insisting that nothing is off the table in confronting what they all keep insisting, with no hard evidence, is Irans alleged program to produce a nuclear weapon. We know, from reports by journalists like Seymour Hersh and others, that the US is already sponsoring and helping to orchestrate sabotage and terror attacks within Iran. The countrys top nuclear scientists are being killed by sappers on motorbikes, almost certainly working for Mossad, the spy service of Americas client state Israel. Several US aircraft carriers loaded with bombs, bomber aircraft and rack upon rack of cruise missiles, are stationed threateningly off the Iranian coast. And the US is working on boosting the power of its already huge 30,000-pound conventional bombs which are specifically designed to destroy Irans deeply buried nuclear fuel development facilities. The US is also running regular spy flights by stealth plans and drone aircraft (one of which was captured intact recently by the Iranians), over Iran to develop targeting information.

1. Democrats seem confused as to things that should be off the table and things that should stay
on the table.
