    It was a sophisticated device placed on the scientist's car with magnets by a couple of assassins on motorcycles. Who would benefit from killing an Iranian nuclear scientist? The US? Israel? Obama has demonstrated that he is not afraid to engage in political assassinations. How about the CIA? Could Barry maintain plausible deniability if the CIA operated independently?

    I don't know and don't care. If Barry was in the loop and approved, kudos to him. Bottom line though is one dead Iranian asshole. Score one for the good guys in the white hats.

    The thing is, they've threatened and pissed off every player in the region. They are not the only ones capable of playing hardball. In any case we will never know for sure, they will grab some random guys, accuse them, try them, put them to death, praise Allah, the game continues.

    There are alot of players behind the scenes, not just the Israelis. The Arabs don't want the Iranians to get nukes either, plus there are several Iranian dissident groups like the The Peoples Mujahideen of Iran (MEK) plus you also have the American CIA, Special Forces as well as the British intelligence, quite alot of players that do not want Iran's nuclear program to go through.

    If you think the US should go around the world and knock off civilians we don't like it opens a big can 'O worms. Of course only a democrat administration gets away with political assassinations. Could Israel get away with it without the cooperation of the CIA? If so what the hell do we pay the CIA for.
