A closer look at the evidence regarding the alleged assassination plot shows that it is a well concocted plan with the goal of starting a well needed war to fund the military industrial complex, crackdown on dissent in America, and distract from the economic problems that continue to haunt U.S. President Barack Obama. The Iranian assassination plot also programs people psychologically for a future assassination, likely that of Obama.
1. The Iranian Assassination Plot: The alleged plot by Iran to assassinate a Saudi Ambassador is a desperate attempt to foment hatred in America towards the nation of Iran. When examined by any standard, the plot quickly falls apart and warrants an arrest of the politicians pushing the story rather than the war preparations that are currently taking place. This plot is part of a bigger plot that will be validated at a later date when false-flag terror attacks occur in American and are ultimately blamed on Iran.
2. Iran’s Alleged Nuclear Program: Although we have heard about Iran's alleged nuclear program for years, recent news and propaganda is attempting to convince the world that America and the world cannot wait to find out if it is a peaceful nuclear program. This propaganda is flanked by the recent assassination plot accusations and is very reminiscent of the WMD accusations leveled prior to te invasion of Iraq.
3. War Games: Before, during, and after the alleged Iranian assassination plot was propagandized around the world, the Unites States and Israel have been executing war games on a massive level. As evidenced, troops are executing full invasion tactics and Israel is conducting war games with the specific goal of attacking a neighbor’s nuclear program and reactors.
4. Iranian War Propaganda: While the news about the Iranian assassination plot and nuclear program makes the rounds on television, blatant war propaganda is being circulated in an attempt to delegitimize and disparage the Iranian government prior to a new war. Accusations about Iranian woman getting lashed, U.S. troops getting murdered, and inequality in education are suddenly everywhere. This propaganda is a sign that an attack on Iran is imminent.
6. Iranian Censorship: As the war rhetoric and propaganda against Iran intensifies worldwide, censorship of Iranian media is beginning to occur in the U.S. and Britain. This censorship is a blatant attempt to shield the public from the future war crimes that will undoubtedly occur in Iran once the green light for the attack is given. Dead bodies of innocent civilians and American troops are bad for moral and must be removed prior to an Iranian invasion.

Title: Alleged Plot To Kill Saudi Ambassador Fuels U.S. Push To 'Isolate' Iran As Pols Call Plot An 'Act of War'
Date: October 11, 2011

Abstract: The alleged Iranian government-backed plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States is quickly exacerbating already flaring tensions between Washington and Tehran.
Members of Congress were quick to condemn Iran over the plot.
Rep. Michael McCaul R-Texas, said if it was indeed sponsored by the Iranian government, "this would constitute an act of war not only against the Saudis and Israelis but against the United States as well."
Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, speaking on Fox News, called the plot an "act of war" against the United States.
"We have to do something," he said, saying the specifics of the response should be left up to the Defense Department and the president.
But a senior Defense official told Fox News the announcement Tuesday "is not a trip wire for military action in Iran."
"No one should read into this as a pretense for any type of military response," another senior Defense official added.
Speaking to Fox News on the condition of anonymity due to the sensitive nature of the subject, the officials said the Pentagon sees the alleged plot as a criminal act that is rightly being handled by the Department of Justice.
Late Tuesday night, the State Department issued a travel alert for Americans, warning those at home and aboard to watch out for possible attacks linked to the alleged plot.
Attorney General Eric Holder, in announcing the plot and criminal charges filed against two individuals, would not say exactly how high up the plot went in the Iranian government. He said it was "directed and approved by elements of the Iranian government," specifically noting the alleged involvement of members of Iran's special operations Quds Force.
But U.S. officials made clear they will use the plot to marshal international pressure against the regime.
"The United States is committed to holding Iran accountable for its actions," Holder said.
A State Department official on Tuesday called the case a "flagrant violation of international law."
And Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the U.S. would work with its allies to "send a very strong message that this kind of action, which violates international norms, must be ended."
In a separate interview with the Associated Press, Clinton said the plot "crosses a line," and that she and President Obama were calling international leaders to tell them what happened. She said they want to "pre-empt" any efforts by Iran to deny responsibility, as well as "enlist more countries in working together against what is becoming a clearer and clearer threat" from Iran, according to the Associated Press. She said the reaction could "further isolate Iran."
The Treasury Department fired the first diplomatic shot Tuesday afternoon, imposing sanctions on five people allegedly linked to the plot, including four members of the Quds Force -- which is part of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Two of them, Manssor Arbabsiar and Gholam Shakuri, were charged Tuesday in New York federal court, though Skahuri remains at large. The Treasury Department said the other Quds officials named were also involved in the plot. The sanctions will freeze any U.S. assets held by the individuals and prohibit anyone in the U.S. from doing business with them.
U.S. officials say the suspects in the case were working on a "murder for hire" scheme to kill the Saudi ambassador to the United States using explosives. They allegedly reached out to a U.S. source in Mexico posing as a drug cartel representative. Arbabsiar allegedly tried to hire the source and his accomplices to carry out the attack.
Arbabsiar, who was arrested by federal agents on Sept. 29, later confessed to his involvement and said senior Quds officials were directing the plot, according to the Justice Department.
A brief analysis from Stratfor Global Intelligence cautioned against any claims of high-up Iranian involvement. The analysis said the plot as described "seems far-fetched" considering "its ramifications would involve substantial political risk."
"Iran has been known to carry out preoperational surveillance in the United States, but it has not yet used this intelligence to carry out a high-profile attack," the analysis said, suggesting the Tehran links were "exaggerated."
An Iranian representative at the United Nations has denied the U.S. allegations.
But Clinton said in the AP interview Tuesday that the claims are "well-founded."
Clinton plans to meet Wednesday with the Swiss ambassador to Iran, a meeting that will surely provide an opportunity to address the allegations unveiled Tuesday. The Swiss serve as the United States' diplomatic representatives in Iran in the absence of any formal U.S.-Iran relations (Fox News, 2011).
Title: Unanswered Questions Over The Alleged Iranian Assassination Plot
Date: October 13, 2011
Source: The Guardian
Abstract: The alleged plot to kill the Saudi ambassador to the US does not fit with what is known about the supposed perpetrators.
It has the ring of a far-fetched Hollywood thriller and even the senior law enforcement official involved in the investigation admitted to journalists that the alleged plot to kill the Saudi ambassador to the US did not fit with what was known about the methods and practices of the supposed perpetrators, the Quds force of the Revolutionary Guards. But $100,000 was clearly transferred by someone as a downpayment on the assassination. Washington is taking the case seriously enough to make unprecedented allegations against Tehran and threaten further isolation. The affair leaves several questions unanswered:
Title: Feinstein Questions Whether Iran Backing More Plots in Wake of Alleged Assassination Scheme
1. It appears very unlikely that Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, would approve such a brazen plot with such unpredictable consequences, in effect going to war with Iran's three greatest enemies – Saudi Arabia, the US and Israel – at the same time. The watchwords of Khamenei's 23-year tenure have been caution and regime stability. He has attempted, not always successfully, to calibrate the nuclear programme to avoid uniting the UN security council against Iran, while pushing on steadily. Iran, under his guidance, has worked very hard to mitigate the international impact of sanctions and is sensitive to its standing in the Islamic world. Things are generally going well for Tehran in the triangular relationship with the US and Saudi, as Washington and Riyadh had fallen out badly over the Arab spring and Palestinian recognition. Why would Khamenei and his regime risk all this on such a bizarre plot?
2. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, right, is also a problematic suspect. The president has little influence on the Quds force and is currently on what passes in Tehran for a charm offensive, releasing two US hikers after two years in custody and proposing a new uranium deal last month. Ahmadinejad is in a tense standoff with Khamenei and in the past has backed a limited accommodation with the west. Would he risk his own precarious position to back a plot and would he have the power to orchestrate such a venture without the supreme leader's knowledge and approval?
3. The Quds force has previously gone to great lengths to ensure its fingerprints are not found on attacks abroad. It almost always operates through trusted proxies such as Hezbollah and Iraqi Shia militias which the Revolutionary Guards have trained in most cases. Despite years of investigations, there is suspicion but no proof of Iranian involvement in the 1983 bombing of the US embassy in Beirut and the 1996 attack on the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia. In this latest alleged plot, the Quds force was purported to be working with a Mexican drugs cartel, the Zetas, with an Iranian-American used-car salesman as middleman (the plot was said to be codenamed Chevrolet). The link was made because the car salesman, Mansour Arbabsiar, was allegedly a cousin of a "big general" in the Quds force and a friend of the aunt of a Texas "associate" of the Zetas. Arbabsiar revealed the Iranian nature of the plot to this man, who turned out to be a US government informant. Why would the Quds force now throw its professionalism and caution to the wind?
4. The key evidence that the alleged plot was serious was the $100,000 wire transfer. It came from a foreign bank account, but that cannot be an Iranian account because such transfers are impossible under US law. The money must have come from a third country, but which? And how can the US authorities be so sure the foreign accounts were under the control of the Quds force?
5. Arbabsiar boasted that his cousin, who is said to have instigated the plot, "worked for [the] government [of Iran] but he's working outside. He's working like … like [a named non-Iranian intelligence agency]". Arbabsiar's absent co-defendant, Golam Shakuri, was allegedly a Quds colonel working for the cousin. Who is this cousin and how sure are the US authorities that he is a senior member of the Quds force?
6. Arbabsiar was told by his cousin and another high- ranking member of the Quds force that the head of the force, presumably Qassem Suleimani, approved of the plot and would eventually meet Arbabsiar. But is there any proof that he was involved?
7. Could the alleged conspiracy be the work of an extremist cell within the Quds force? In that case, the unit is far more fragmented than previously thought and we should shortly see top people in the organisation disappearing from view. There is a precedent for such a cell: in 1999 the deputy minister of intelligence, Saeed Emami, was arrested and accused of carrying out a series of murders of intellectuals, known as the chain murders, without official authority. He was also reported to have tried smuggling missiles to Brussels to attack Nato. Emami was reported to have killed himself in prison.
8. Could the alleged plot be provocation by an outside agency seeking to start a conflict between Iran and its enemies? In that case, Arbabsiar is consciously misleading his interrogators or is being used by his cousin and his associates, who are working for this third party. If that was the case, how did Arbabsiar correctly identify a senior Quds officer whose identity is not widely known? (The Guardian, 2011).

Abstract: A top senator warned that the United States should be on "alert" about other Iran-driven terror plots in the wake of the alleged scheme to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to Washington.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said she's been aware of the investigation for about a month and that "intelligence indicates" there could be "problems" elsewhere.
Feinstein declined to get into detail and stressed that she wasn't saying other diplomats are necessarily in danger. But she raised the question of whether an Israeli ambassador or American ambassador could also be targeted, if Iran's special operations Quds Force was involved in this plot as alleged.
