It took me 1.25 seconds to see through the smoke and mirrors of the news headline of the day: Iran has been tied to a broken plot to launch a terror attack against the United States. The report states that Iran was linked with an attempt to detonate bombs to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador to the US, and attack the Israeli embassy in D.C.
The United States has a history of using false flags as a psychological tool to coax the general population into a war frenzy... remember the Weapons of Mass Destruction argument for war with Iraq, or the Gulf of Tonkin incident? The US has been looking for a reason to take offensive action against Iran. News stories like this, the "would have/could have" busted terror plots, etc... they are merely adding to the public mind-set that "We are at war with Iran. We have always been at war with Iran."
The purpose behind this report? Here are my theories:
1. A slumping president heading into an election. A fresh war sends the "don't change horses mid-stream" message. Very effective for presidential elections.
2. Eric Holder is under fire for the Fast and Furious situation. Diversion, diversion, diversion.
3. Justification for continued government infractions into Civil Liberties... afterall, if we can't show success the people will grow restless and start taking away some of our Patriot Act powers.
