The articles, as a whole, weren't terribly interesting yesterday at Watching America, but that might have been because I still was suffering some minor heat exhaustion symptoms. One article, fortunately, did grab my attention. It's an opinion piece published in Germany's Junge Welt and provides good insight into the US claim that we had disrupted an Iranian plan to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the US. I thought the whole episode smelled for various reasons, and this article fleshed out my suspicions nicely.

In reality, all participating U.S. agencies admit that there is no evidence that the government of Iran is in any way involved or complicit in the plot. The fact that nearly every mainstream media outlet in the West is reporting exactly the opposite is neither surprising nor, from the American point of view, undesirable. It's the only way the U.S. can justify the new sanctions against Iran that were announced by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. She announced at a press conference that the U.S. would “work closely with our international partners to increase Iran's isolation and the pressure on its government, and we call upon other nations to join us in condemning this threat to international peace and security." She added that the plot “crosses a line that Iran needs to be held to account for.” She then triumphantly announced that this case would fortify the distrust many countries felt toward Iran.

This supposed assassination plot that justifies “punitive measures” against an entire nation was apparently another in a series of so-called sting operations that have been increasingly popular recently with the FBI, CIA and other American security agencies, all of which are designed to prove the dangers of “Muslim terrorists.” Using this plot, unstable individuals were systematically involved in fictitious conspiracies constructed by police and intelligence agencies. The conspiracies originated overwhelmingly in the imaginations and machinations of those agencies. They ranged from identifying assassination targets to providing explosives and weapons.
[Emphasis added]

Yes, yes, and yes.

I would only add that in addition to providing cover for more sanctions, this "nefarious plot" also gives a the whack job sector of our nation an opportunity to call for yet another war against the Muslim Infidels. Sadly, the current administration might be sympathetic to such a call.

We still haven't moved beyond 9/12/01, and the rest of the world has noticed.

How humiliating is that?
