U.S. Hatches Iran Murder Tale to Sow Suspicion; 'Deflect' American Public from 'Unrest'


Could it be that the United States and the West is falsely charging Iran with plotting a terrorist attack against Saudi Arabia and Israel in the United States? According to this editorial from Iran's state-run FARS News Agency, the plot is a carefully planned attempt to deflect attention from protests on Wall Street and sow suspicion of Iran in neighboring Arab countries.

The suspect: Naturalized American Manssor Arbabsiar is charged with being hired by Iran's Quds Force to kill the Saudi Ambassador to the United States.

TEHRAN: U.S. officials and media have launched a new scenario against Tehran for a number of reason: to divert global public attention from uprisings in the U.S. and Middle East; impose new security measures in the U.S. to harness the Wall Street uprising; weaken trust in Iran and its revolution around the region; and persuade U.N. Security Council members to agree to a new resolution against Tehran in order push it into a corner in nuclear talks.


As the Obama Administration grapples with growing unrest and popular protest throughout the United States, the White House launched this new campaign against Iran, alleging that the FBI and DEA have broken up an Iranian plot to kill a Saudi envoy to Washington. FBI and DEA agents alleged on Tuesday that they have disrupted a plot to commit a "significant terrorist act in the United States" tied to Iran.


The officials claimed that the plot included the assassination of the Saudi Ambassador to the United States Adel Al-Jubeir with a bomb, and subsequent bombing attacks on the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Washington, D.C. The bombings of Saudi and Israeli embassies in Buenos Aires, Argentina were also discussed, according to the officials.


In an announcement today, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder claimed that the plan was "conceived, sponsored and directed' from a faction of the Iran government, calling it a "flagrant" violation of U.S. and international law.


Holder alleged that the plot was "conceived" in Iran by the Quds Force, part of Iran's Islamic Revolution Guard Corps.


Hours later on Tuesday night, Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast dismissed the U.S. allegations as a totally unfounded prefabricated scenario.


"Such worn-out approaches based on the old hostile policies of the American-Zionist axis are a comedy show and one of the special scenarios staged by the enemies of Islam and the region to sow discord (among Muslims)," Mehman-Parast said.


A look at the past reveals how Washington and some of its allies, at sensitive junctures, have always hatched carefully worked out psychological operations against Washington's foes.


In addition, a look at current conditions in the Middle East and Western countries shows that America and its allies are having a difficult time with popular uprisings - and not only those in Arab countries: in the U.S. and several European countries, unrest has undermined American policy, attracting global media attention and leading to the further isolation of the Zionist regime.



Thus once again, the White House is at a sensitive juncture and needs to divert global public opinion from the suppression of the American people, other Western communities and protestors in Bahrain, Yemen, and America's main ally in the region, Saudi Arabia.

And as usual, this new act has appeared thanks to the tight collaboration of all Western media, which have mobilized everything they have to convince the world to accept a huge and monstrous lie.


At the same time, this new act may serve to help the White House impose a new wave of security measures across America and raise its terror alert condition in a move to more effectively clamp down on protests against Wall Street, which have overwhelmed the country.


In addition, the Obama Administration believes that such a plot will help undermine trust in Iran and its revolution around the region just as nations throughout the Muslim world are looking toward Iran as a model, with a dozen having witnessed mass popular uprisings that, as they themselves say, have all been inspired by Iran's Islamic Revolution.


This new plot may also help the U.S. and its allies to exert added pressure on Iran during nuclear talks between Tehran and the West. The plot has already provided a pretext for the U.S. to seek a new round of sanctions against Iran, and the White House is hopeful of persuading other U.N. Security Council members, especially Russia and China, not to veto a new resolution against Iran.


Regardless of how successful this new U.S. plot may be, nations should examine both sides of the story to better understand the realities behind America's latest puppet show.
