US: Iranís Quds force involved in terror plot

The White House said on Wednesday that senior members of Iran's Quds force participated in the alleged plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador in Washington, and that the United States would hold Tehran accountable.

"It's clear that senior levels of Quds force were engaged in the plotting," White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters, saying that Washington would respond by intensifying efforts to isolate Iran.

The Quds Force (Persian: نیروی قدس, translit. Niru-ye Qods), (or Qods Force) is a special unit of Iran's Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution (Revolutionary Guard). It has been described as "tasked with exporting" Iran's Islamic revolution, or "responsible for extraterritorial operations" of the Revolutionary Guard.

Has anyone received any confirmation regarding this so-called (reported) assassination plot at ALL that THEY, THE IRANIANS, WERE PLANNING TO INFILTRATE THROUGH THE POROUS SOUTHERN U.S.A. BORDER FROM MEXICO VIA MEXI-NARCO GANGS??

If so, what better a reason to shut down that damned border NOW!! (after screaming about it for 25 years or more and hundreds of thousands of dead Americans and Mexicans).

Forget Texas. Perry needs illegals to fill our college campuses and mow his lawn.

I predict cruise missile strikes on Iranian Revolutionary Guards bases within the next 24 to 48 hours.

They will do absolutely nothing to degrade Iranian combat capabilities, but it will allow the Bamster to pretend to have grown half a gonad.

Yeah. Heard that. Say, do they extend benefits to Zetas as well as to Culiacan narco cartel, are they fairly even in their application of Texas state educational benefits, for these fine upstanding people who do the work Americans won’t do, study the material American students won’t study? / sarc

Are you kidding? Comrade 0bama isn’t about to attack his natural allies:

a.) Iran hates and despises America, so does 0bama.

b.) Iran hates and despises Israel, so does 0bama.

c.) Iran thinks American society is corrupt and decadent, so does 0bama.

0bama may yammer away with a few semi-impressive phrases (depending on how the TOTUS is programmed), but he’ll do the same thing as his bumbling predecessor did regarding Iran, which is >>>NOTHING<<<.

GWB talked the talk, but he failed to walk the walk, which is why the world is now facing a nearly nuclear-capable Iran.

Thanks George, that was one job you should NOT have left to your incompetent successor.

Wrong analysis. They have already cast all of their eggs into some sort of UN garbage and their language is softening faster than Fukoshima melted down. The reality is the unpictured person still on the lose is a figment of someone’s imagination created from a known name to take F&F off the front pages.

I saw news lines that said subpoenas were being prepared to be delivered on Tuesday. It was within thirty minutes that this news breaks. Issa gave them their 24 hours to pimp the story and delivered the subpoenas on Wednesday. Even the press was worried because Issa’s focus was so direct and detailed.

Issa has the goods on Holder and is just sending out a net to see if he reponds with the truth. Holder is going down in a big way and his boss won’t be far behind.

Same, mkj, for North Korea's ICBM and plutonium programs for the last 10 years, both Red Lines that GWB said North Korea was NOT TO CROSS, yet they did it anyways, and Condi Rice/Chris Hill were there to deep kiss Kim Jong il at the Six Way Orgy Talks in Beijing all the live long appeasing day. Sheesh. You would almost think these RINOs were Demoncrats.

All talk. No action. All Hat. No Texan. No thanks.

That’s “Chris Jong Ill”, lol

And sadly, you are absolutely correct. It never ceases to amaze me that one of the smartest and most perceptive foreign policy sages was given short shrift, i.e., former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton, while that insipid wannabe Condi Rice was viewed as the second coming of Colin Powell (which ain’t sayin’ much) in a skirt, minus the fruit salad decorations.

Zetas have the upper hand since many of them already have diplomas from the U.S. Army Benning School of Infantry that they have put to practical use in the drug smuggling business.
