Hillary Mann Leverett: Thin U.S. Charges of Terror Plot Escalate Tension with Iran

Standard

Hillary Mann Leverett appeared on al Jazeera, please see video link above, shortly after news broke that the Obama Administration has accused Iran of trying to arrange the assassination of Saudi Ambassador to the United States, Adel al Jubeir.  According to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder and the formal criminal complaint released today, the planners envisioned killing Ambassador Jubeir in a crowded Washington, DC restaurant, where, the Administration charges, tens if not hundreds of other people could also have died.  The central figures in the alleged plot are an Iranian-American dual national living in Corpus Christi, Texas and his cousin, allegedly a Revolutionary Guard general working in the Quds Force.  The Iranian government has denied the charges and denounced them as a fabrication.
