So Iran’s secretly saying they have terrorists ready to terrorize the US citizens if they’re attacked instead of fighting a military vs military war? Call me crazy, but this is exactly what the US, Israel, and most nations that aren’t getting Iranian oil or money sent to them have been saying for decades. Iran is the worlds top sponsor for terrorism, with a nuclear weapon they will hold the world hostage. Period. They must be stopped!
(Washington Post) An assessment by U.S. spy agencies concludes that Iran is prepared to launch terrorist attacks inside the United States, highlighting new risks as the Obama administration escalates pressure on Tehran to halt its alleged pursuit of an atomic bomb.
In congressional testimony Tuesday, U.S. intelligence officials indicated that Iran has crossed a threshold in its adversarial relationship with the United States. While Iran has long been linked to attacks on American targets overseas, U.S. officials said they see troubling significance in Tehran’s alleged role in a plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador in Washington last year.
U.S. officials said they have seen no intelligence to indicate that Iran is actively plotting attacks on U.S. soil. But Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. said the thwarted plot “shows that some Iranian officials — probably including Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei — have changed their calculus and are now more willing to conduct an attack in the United States in response to real or perceived U.S. actions that threaten the regime.”
