I find this remarkably convenient -- and diverting -- while Holder is on the broiler for Fast and Furious. We'll see.

Alleged plan to attack Arabian Embassy in U.S. Holder taking credit for his “law-enforcement actions” that prevented this attack. The dolt still claims such military attacks are law-enforcement issues.

Did Holder help sell them the weapons, plans, and equipment for the plot?

I'll chip in $100 into a pool for the first reporter to ask a question like that of Holder.

Holder speaking now, can’t quite figure it out...some guy in Iran and some guy in USA were donating money to a Solar Company so a plot to assassinate diplomats using weapons from Mexico that were bought illegally in the USA...???

Very confusing...some guy named BOB from the Effbeeyi speaking about a Hollywood script but it was real this time.

Innocent people were maybe going to be hurt by a ruler of law?

Of course national security considerations prevent supporting these allegations with factual evidence, but
the important thing is we should just consider ourselves lucky that we have a standup guy like Eric Holder and the DOJ watching out for us.

Depends on the polling.

“Don’t fire us...you need us for SOMETHING..!!”

Sure, sure...another fake emergency from the Dept of Injustice.

“We need to make ALL semi-auto rifles illegal cuz of alllll the nasty Mexican murders...”

IS THE SAME AS:

“Trust us, there was a HUUUUGE Iranian plan to attack the USA...”

Ya’d be an IDIOT to believe ANYTHING these people say.

TOTALLY DISGUSTED.

I would love to hear a reporter ask, “Mr. Holder, great job with the terrorist plot, now explain what you knew and when did you know it about Fast & Furious?”

This is clearly a Dept of Homeland Security subject. Not DOJ.
It is obvious why the DOJ Director is presenting this...

DISTRACTION and an EXCUSE set-up.

“I can’t appear before the House...we have a credible bomb threat that I have to take care of” - Eric Holder, October 12, 2011

This is beyond lame!!!

Love it! This is exactly what I was thinking. Holder is about to go down for lying to Congress about “Fast and Furious” now he is a “hero” for thwarting this attempt. Although I just heard that “no explosives were ever actually purchased” and “no one was ever actually in danger” plus they got everyone and they got all the “co-conspirators”. Also, "There was no actual restaurant targeted." Why is this anything more than a page ten blurb?

Why did they stop the attack? Why not let the attack happen like FDR did in Pearl Harbor? Then we could have a real war with rationing (gas and Food) A Draft (this time with women) and we could arrest all those anti-American Tea Party people. We could draft Illegal Aliens—really run up debt as well—War Bonds could be sold?

Very similiar to the way they used The Donald as an excuse for Obama to finally produce a long form COLB, after several years of obstruction, and then produced the Bin Ladin raid as a distraction from the fact that the COLB was an obvious forgery.

I was going to say when I first heard about the Holder appearance that denying involvement in Fast and Furious would only raise the heat still more. But they know that—therefore, this.

IF this turns out to be the flimsy BS we immediately suspect, it was brilliant to throw in the Iran angle. The McCain/Graham/NR GOP types are so hot for a war, they'll jump all over this and Holder. Any critics will be treated as "Birthers" or "Truthers" by the "Grownups".

Very interesting. Seems to give credence to the theory that the Saudis are very quietly but enthusiastically backing an Israeli strike on Iran.

So does that mean the DOJ isn't conducting any "bomb walking" operations yet?

"They" had helicopters out there for several days and nights trolling for nuclear materials.

That always means Iran is up to some sort of nonsense ~ and they were.

With this act of war we probably need to turn iran into a glass parking lot.

They have a name, Gholam Shakuri, member of the Iranian military special operations unit. Logically, given the times, an assasination is called for.

An attack on Iran. Perfect wag-the-dog tactic. Except this is not his jurisdiction. This is for the DHS/DOD.
