A student asked me to blog about the latest news about Iran and the plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the US. I simply have no clue about it. I do think Foreignpolicy.com has had a few posts that are most illuminating including Worst Bomb Plot Ever; Excellent stuff here.
I do have a few questions. Folks tend to think the guy at the center of the plot is hard to buy as a covert operative. "Manssor Arbabsiar, the Iranian expatriate at the center of the plot,
bears no resemblance to a covert operative.(Worst Bomb Plot)" Um, isn't that what a covert operative is supposed to appear to be?
