• Department of Justice Uncovers Alleged Iranian Terrorist Plot

    Okay, so, two terrorists backed by the Iranian government and a DEA agent posing as a member of Mexican drug cartel walk into a bar.

    The bartender takes one look and says, what is is this, some sort of recently foiled insane terrorist plot to assassinate a Saudi Arabian diplomat on U.S. soil?

    Attorney General Eric Holder said two Iranians have been charged with conspiracy to murder a foreign official and conspiracy to commit an act of international terrorism, among other charges. One of the suspects, an Iranian with U.S. citizenship, was arrested in New York last month; the other, an Iranian, remains at large…

    The suspects were identified as Manssor Arbabsiar, a 56-year-old from Austin, and Gholam Shakuri, an Iran-based member of Iran’s Quds Force, an elite division of that country’s Revolutionary Guard Corps responsible for foreign operations…

    Officials described the details of the plot involving the ambassador as chilling, and alleged that Arbabsiar met with a DEA informant – who was posing as a representative of a Mexican drug cartel — to arrange his killing.

    I'm sure ACORN or William Ayers has got to be mixed up in this somehow. Can't wait to find out how.
