    This is definitely not the work of the "establishment" types in Iran. Rogue elements? Yep.

    I will admit the whole situation is odd but believable and the timing adds another level to it. However, that maybe something you could say about most of things these days. I don't know, this has a gray area it isn't cut and dry. It'll be interesting to hear all the details...

    I will say the combination of Iranian failures and how they portrayed the guy accused in this, it would make sense he ended up going to an informant about this. What did he do cruise around the border, walk up to the first guy around and say hey you know a hitman? He's like, 'Your in luck, I am a hitman' lol.

    What's Iran up to in Latin America? Alleged assassination plot deepens concerns.
    October 12, 2011 - Iran's ties to Latin American leaders have been growing in recent years, but the alleged assassination plot against the Saudi ambassador to the US is drawing attention to its less savory activities.

    Foiled Iran assassination plot underlines US-Mexico cooperation
    October 12, 2011 - In some ways, attempting to employ Latin American criminals to carry out a terrorist act is the worst case scenario, but this case also shows how US-Mexico cooperation can stymie such actions.

    Oh! Look! A thread where anti-American nutters are developing a new conspiracy theory. One nut introduces doubt....another questions timing.....and we even have a "moderate" who says that he doesn't think it is a fake story but says the "timing" adds another level.

    WTG......all you need is a constant ' Was Iran Plot A Holder Plan?" scroll on FOX and you've got enough to take the minds of dummies off of jobs for a few days.

    I'm a little dubious about these claims. It looks like Obama is trying to boost his standing by creating a crisis.
