Why would Iran try to enlist a Mexican drug cartel to knock off

the Saudi ambassador?
This story sounds more like a CIA operation gone awry.

Undo what Wilson did

Nonesense

No surprise considering the source

Go do something physical & clear your head, you're posting mush

"You Cannot Stop An Idea Whose Time Has Come"

Very Good Job FearMongering, Velveeta

Just the facts please. There's enough bad news out there without making it worse.

From the article:

"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."

Eyeroll...

Title changed to better reflect the tone of the reporting.

Why is the Treasury Dept.

Why is the Treasury Dept. getting involved in all this...I have seen this more than once lately..wtf?

The Treasury Secretary orders the loans from the Bankers

In our case the bankers loan management department is the Federal Reserve. Congress approves the loan (raises the debt ceiling and pledges collateral.) Taxpayers and share holders of an inflating supply of US legal tender pays the bill, or at least the interest forever.

A war takes money, plenty of money, to get it right.

The Federal Reserve sell loans at interest for collateral. That is their business.

These bankers have sold a lot of loans to nations.

Whose governments are worst.

Each US citizen has been assigned by Congress a $47,000 share of money owed to foreigners. Deficits don't matter to government, Congress has left us on the hook.

The loan sharks circle.

Free includes debt-free!

I don't think there will be a war response

This was an FBI sting opperation. The FBI made contact with this guy and tried to get him to conceive a plot and then arrest him in the act (much like a drug sting). The alleged terrorist went over to Iran and got two Revolutionary Guards to cooperate. I don't think this goes to the top of Iranian leadership. Could this be used as a provocation for war? Possibly, but I don't think so. This wasn't an act of war, it was a sting opperation. It would be a very bad precedent for the FBI to entrap a nation into war, and I don't think the administration wants to go that far. .02

Where

does it say "permission granted?"

I see this:
Senior White House 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.

Not they haven't been planning this for a while, but I couldn't find "permission granted," in the article.

Maybe I'm missing something?

As usual it is a sensational headline to a non sensational story

If you will notice from this posters history, it isn't exactly a new tactic. There seem to be more and more people that can't simply post the correct title, so that not only will people see it and not post the same thing 500 times in one day, but it would be an honest title instead of making this place look like rumor central.

Nice

Nice. And this smarmy response coming from a person who hasn't posted a single news story here (breaking or otherwise) in over 4 years... I consider that an impressive track record of non-participation. How about you actually do a little work and start a thread with your opinion, rather than respond to the views and opinions of others? Too much work?

That's why it's in quotes.

That's why it's in quotes. The permission is implied by the way this story is couched. "They" attack "us" on "our" soil.... "we" have permission to attack them.

You & Barracuda might work out a title. My reply in Barracuda's forum has 2 Reuters newsreel clips 1 & 3 minutes w/ Mueller & Holder reading a Hollywood script (mentioned @ 20 seconds into Mueller's script reading). Regards,

Ooops what do you know...

another sensational title for this story. Now we can all sit back and see just how many times this same exact story can be posted under varying sensationalized titles. Just use the stories original title or very close to it...how hard is that exactly? We have to claim that we're declaring WWIII and the US government says attack...and yet nothing close to that in the story...just pure dramatic ignorance.

Always look for good stories, well told. I like your thought.

Attach an appropriate title to the story being told. Oft I use the story teller's title. The more I disagree w/ the story teller, the more likely I rename the story.

Perhaps I am not one to be casting the first stones.

Oh, I'm fine with his title.

Oh, I'm fine with his title. I'm in favor of blending the contents of both threads.

Suggest titles closer to facts. Press conference...

Coming from me, this might be quite odd.

FBI & Attorney General... Hollywood script (stated in Meuller - FBI script reading)...

Yes, the title was overboard.

Yes, the title was overboard. I admit it. I've changed it.

Frankly I'd rather all identical threads be blended into one thread by a mod, but there it is.

Just in time for the election

Just in time for the election and then the CRASH

Got to get those hippies off Wall Street, don't ya' know?

We delayed this war for 5 years, and I mean US, here at the DP. We had help, but I remember the threads that would create a flurry of phone calls saying "NO WAR WITH IRAN."
This may backfire. The people I spoke with today voted for Obama to end the damn war, not start new ones. Another war may FILL the Occupy movement, literally to 99% of us.

Love or fear? Chose again with every breath.
