    "The US is using an international criminal investigation into a 1994 terrorist attack in Argentina to keep Tehran in duress. The Wall Street Journal reveals the Bush administration's behind-the-scenes machinations to encourage the 14-year-old probe, which claims Iranian agents planned the bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires that killed 85 people.

    "One U.S. goal is to cause legal problems for some of Iran's political leaders," report Jay Solomon and Evan Perez. "Administration officials also hope to use the matter to highlight Iran's alleged role in financing and supporting terrorism around the world."

    The news comes less than two weeks after a confrontation between US Navy warships and small Iranian speedboats that resulted in several days of bellicose warnings and hostile rhetoric toward Iran from President Bush and members of his administration. Late last week it was acknowledged that the "threats" the Navy initially thought were coming from the Iranians could have been broadcast from virtually anywhere and may have been the result of a prankster known as the "Filipino Monkey."

    Administration officials are now telling Solomon and Perez that the 1994 bombing "serves as a model for how Tehran has used its overseas embassies and relationships with foreign militant groups, in particular Hezbollah, to strike at its enemies," the two report.

    Because it's a more credible source of information than that link you provided?

    Indeed, a particularly odd question, when some in this thread routinely link to obscure rightwing sites/blogspot.com.

    It's all they can do, DCD.


    They certainly have no credible argument of their own to offer up for consideration.

    What's to argue? Kind of hard to get all up for an argument over something from the "Who Gives a Shit" file.
