Highlights: A naturalized Iranian-American citizen propositioned a US informant posing as a Mexican drug cartel representative to carry out an attack on the Saudi ambassador to the United States. He says he was backed by members of Iran's Revolutionary Guard. There's no evidence Iran's highest leadership was aware of this.

The new case, called Operation Red Coalition, began in May when an Iranian-American from Corpus Christi, Texas, approached a DEA informant seeking the help of a Mexican drug cartel to assassinate the Saudi ambassador, according to counter-terrorism officials.

The Iranian-American thought he was dealing with a member of the feared Zetas Mexican drug organization, according to agents.

The DEA office in Houston brought in FBI agents as the international terror implications of the case became apparent.

The Iranian-American, identified by federal officials as Manssor Arbabsiar, 56, reportedly claimed he was being "directed by high-ranking members of the Iranian government," including a cousin who was "a member of the Iranian army but did not wear a uniform," according to a person briefed on the details of the case.


Senior Obama administration officials said the U.S. currently does not have any information indicating that either Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei or President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad necessarily knew about the assassination plot and said the U.S. will pursue a path of response that would not include the possibility of an armed conflict with Iran.

Nice try.

Of course, Noam Chomsky is a total crackpot. He must be, he says things that people on faux news would disagree with, this makes it all totally insane.

Why don't you listen to the part of the video where he's quoting facts before you start talking about things you have no clue about?

What is?

Is Chomsky not staunchly pro-Israel? If he isn't disregard the lot of this and call me a fanny, but being very pro-Israel kind of counterindicates being able to logically address Iran.

No. Chomsky has been actually incredibly against all of the illegal occupation and other crimes of Israel, so much so that he was recently not allowed to actually go in as far as i'm aware. Watch the video i originally posted, he's saying things that are directly in opposition to the whole 'iran are terrible' vibe that we get over here, and using official sources to back that up.

It does, but it's okay since the video i posted is doing exactly that, i've just said it in a very abrasive kind of way. Some time some one needs to point out the propaganda we're given against Iran over here, things like this are just continuations.

This is the important thing and the reason i posted that video in particular, it isn't just someone giving a load of opinions, he examines the facts as they're presented and does little more than connect the dots. That's something you don't get on the news. Well, i saw Chomsky on 'hard talk' once but that's only on at like 4am...

Given you suck the dick of whatever he says at any opportunity, I am calling into question the actual importance of what he says.

Fun Fact: 36% of the US oil supply is domestic, and our biggest foreign supplier of oil is Canada. Together that accounts for 57% of the US oil supplies.

Its good stuff lol. Between cracked and this website it is amazing I ever get any work done. Although I will admit that article does hide the fact that Saudi Arabia still is the 2nd largest foreign oil supplier to the US, just ahead of mexico.

It still came from Iranian government. Remember how there was no evidence Bush/Cheney knew about Abu Ghraib? Could be similar to that. Not necessarily explicit but definitely the culture of the rulers.

I'd argue that it's being put out there that way, that's the 'jist' of things that are being said about Iran in our media, it's basically outright lies we get told in every other aspect anyway, so it seems like that's the conclusion that's wanted to be jumped to.
