Plan to Kill Saudi Ambassador Foiled

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

Saudi Ambassador to the United States

U.S. agents, Tuesday, stopped a plan
to kill Saudi Arabia's ambassador to
the United States, per U.S. Attorney
General Eric Holder.

The plan "is a fabrication," Spokesman
for Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
stated Tuesday.

Court documents filed in federal court
point the finger at Manssor Arbabsiar
and Gholam Shakuri for the failed attack.

They "were part of a well-funded and
pernicious plot that had, as its first
priority, the assassination of the Saudi
ambassador to the United States, without
care or concern for the mass casualties
that would result from their planned
attack," Preet Bharara, U.S. Attorney
for the New York southern district.

According to The New York Times, the
Justice Department described a plan
of international proportion.

Gholam Shakuri, an Iran member of Iran's
Qods Force, is in the special operations
unit of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary
Guard Corps that's said to sponsor and
promote terrorist activities abroad, FBI.

Arbabsiar secretly planned with Shakuri
to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to
the United States. The Justice Department's
criminal complaint.

Arbabsiar "confessed" to his part in the
alleged plan and gave specific details,
U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder.

The plan was "conceived, sponsored and
directed from Iran," Holder.

The suspects are an Iranian and an
Iranian-American from Texas per NBC

Shakuri isn't in custody.

The case, dubbed Operation Red Coalition,
started in May when an Iranian-American
from Corpus Christi, Texas went to a DEA
informant for help that stirred-in a
Mexican drug cartel, ABC News.

The suspect thought he had contacted a
member of the Zetas Mexican drug
organization, per ABC.

The U.S. government will take action
against the Iranian government as soon
as Tuesday afternoon.

The Mexican government was instrumental
in the investigation, Holder.

The case illustrates that we live in a
world where borders and boundaries are
increasingly irrelevant, FBI Director
Robert Mueller.
