RT: Scheuer suspicious about FBI role in Iran investigation

with 2 comments

Russia Today reports:

­Michael Scheuer, a former CIA intelligence officer, believes there are many suspicious issues about the investigation.

“One of the biggest problems in the US is telling what the terrorist threat is in our country,” Scheuer told RT. “The FBI runs the sting operations and then claims great credit for breaking up a plot that would not have existed [had they not] lured someone into doing it.”

“My initial reaction was: If the Iranians want to kill a Saudi ambassador, why do it in the US?” said the former CIA intelligence officer, suggesting the incident could be used as an excuse to start a full-scale war with Iran.

  1. This story sounds bogus to me. Even if you believe the folks running Iran are crazy, they are certainly not stupid. And this bizarre scheme wouldn’t benefit Iran. It would hurt them. All it would do is hand the U.S. an easy excuse to bomb and/or invade them. So the whole scenario makes no sense.
