Obama Demands 'Accountability' By Iran Over Plot
Jerusalem Post ^ | October 13, 2011 | By Reuters

Posted on 10/13/2011 10:56:57 AM PDT by Fennie

WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama said on Thursday "individuals in the Iranian government" were aware of the alleged plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to Washington, and they must be held accountable.

"We believe that even if at the highest levels there was not detailed operational knowledge, there has to be accountability," Obama told a joint news conference with the visiting South Korean president.

Just announce that our new policy concerning assassination plots is “tit for tat.” Keep them guessing about who is on the target list.

I was listening to my radio in the car when the resident came on the air telling what he was gonna do to big bad Iran.

It was pathetic—both what he said, and how he sounded.......if someone can find it and post it to FR, I think we’d all get a sad laugh from hearing it.

Obama is already getting what looks to be a slight “Wag the Dog” bump based on this. Never mind that they were on to this nut ball last June and he never presented a credible threat. My guess is that this was probably nothing more than a run of the mill Muslim lunatic who was trying to get some support from Iran. This is nothing more than a distraction. The real news will be when all the lunatics stop trying to blow up something somewhere. Obama’s secret best friend, Bill Ayers is an unrepentant bomber he understands what makes them tick.

“Accountability?”

I think that might mean a cash payment into his bank account.

“We believe that even if at the highest levels there was not detailed operational knowledge, there has to be accountability,” - That should also be the argument for the Fast and Furious scandal.

Obama sounded like he did when he said the police acted ‘stupidly’ and then said that he did have any details.

I find it strange that when there is a jihadist attack, immediately Obama and the MSM say that the perp was acting alone (before any details are learned), but in this case, Obama says it was an attack from Iran, again with no details.

Obama said that, even if the plot wasn’t known at the highest levels, the top people were accountable for it. Does this attitude extend to Holder in the Fast and Furious scandal? Noooooo, that’s different.

Hussein "demands" accountability for Iran supposedly targeting a Saud. But Hussein didn't demand the same accountability when Iran's leader called for the extermination of Israel and called it a "corpse".

Wow he tells Christians slaughtered and jews running from their buildings from rocket fire to cool out and then demands “accountability” to Iran? What a lame duck. Let the Saudi’s go in. It’ll be great shia vs sunni and we can watch them kill each other. Oh wait we are addicted to their oil, nevermind. Obama will do nothing, nothing. If he does it’ll be a miracle. Too BAD the idiot is bankruptnig coal, not growing oil until “green gets their sh** together and of course bankrupting all of we the people. Of course he has established the muslim brotherhood by supporting a bloody war in Libya . Gads what a mess he is *ahem* this whole administration is.

And the so-called assassin had a MEXICAN link?

Hmmm...more and more reason to think this is a fake call to get attention off Fast & Furious and try to build some support for Holder's gun policy.

I am sure I'm going to get flamed for this, but how exactly does an Iranian American plot to kill a Saudi diplomat along with a little collateral damage differ from America using unmanned drones to kill people we don't like on foreign soil?

I'm just aksin? For my logic to run true, I find our case for outrage to be a bit single sided.

I disagree with the tit for tat approach as it reeks of the UN propotional response Bravo Sierra.

Our country's response to any agressive act by a foreign power should be overwhelmingly out of proportion. Kill a soldier, lose a division. Kill a citizen lose a city. Kill a diplomat, lose your foreign ministry and so on.

Bullies are not stopped with councling or a smack in the face. Bullying stops when the bully get's the crapped beat out of him.

More rubble, less trouble.

When I heard this, I mentally substituted the words "Fast and Furious" into the question. Funny how he demands accountability from everybody but himself.

Who dares first wins, so I hoped you don’t complain if total war ever commences. You are not “one of those” since your logic would be contradictory.

I’m not mulling over the merits. I’m questioning the sentiment of the crowd who does not see the obvious contradiction regarding Obama’s outrage. Given Obama fans and their logic, how come we are not issuing subpoena’s and requests for extradition to bring the perpetrators to justice?

They were also allegedly plotting to blow up Israel's embassy in Washington as well as those of Israel and Saudi Arabia in Argentina.

That is pretty simple. People who have been involved in terror attacks on American interests are fair game. If you haven’t been involved in actual attacks or planning/instigating attacks on American interests you are home free. It isn’t like the scum recently wiped off the fact of the earth was hanging out with den-mothers and missionaries either.

Reminds me of the old movie Best Little Whorehouse in Texas where TV newsman Melvin P. Thorpe (Dom Delouise) was accusing Sheriff Ed Earl (Burt Reynolds) of being a phony. While making this accusation, Melvin was getting ready to go on camera and was putting a corsett on to make him look much slimmer than he actually was.

Honestly, Zer0's overuse of the word "unprecedented" would have its highest and best use to describe his own infinite hypocrisy.

WASHINGTON - US President Barack Obama said on Thursday “individuals in my administration” were aware of the alleged operation (Fast and Furious) which led to the murder of a US border agent, and they must be held accountable.

“We believe that even if at the highest levels there was not detailed operational knowledge, there has to be accountability,” Obama told a joint news conference with the visiting South Korean president.

There. I fixed it.

Every nation hatches entire armies of dirty tricksters who's job it is to plan endless plots on who and what to blow up in other places. It's what they call security and policy.

How is it alarming to anyone that Iran would plan to blow up an Israeli enbassy? The rulers of Iran work at that every day. The Israeli's wake up every day working to thwart it.

Heck, Bill Clinton blew up the Chinese Embassy in Bosnia! Old maps my a$$..........
