This is yet another one of my “Feuds I Wish Would Last Forever . . . And Both Sides Would Lose.” Today, the feds charged two Iranians, one of them a U.S. citizen, with plotting to assassinate Saudi Arabia’s longtime U.S. Ambassador Adel Al-Jubeir.
If you’ve ever seen Adel Al-Jubeir, he’s a cold, calculating, unapologetic defender of Islamic extremism and Saudi kidnapping of U.S. families where the mother had the stupidity to conceive with a Saudi Muslim. Al-Jubeir grew up in Texas, where he learned American culture and how to infiltrate it. He’s a total scumbag who was previously the spokeschick for Saudi Arabia in the U.S. after the 9/11 attacks. He’s the hack who came up with the “Saudi Arabia . . . American ally in the war on terror” BS, which was included in full page newspaper ads and TV commercials after 15 of his fellow countrymen mass murdered 3,000 Americans.
Al-Jubeir’s most famous uck buddy is Campbell Brown, now married to Hezbollah-enabling, illegal-alien-enabling liberal Jew Dan Senor. Yes, Brown is an equal opportunity slut, but always with people who help Islamic extremists. Her current hubby, Senor, helped his boss Spencer Abraham send nearly $100 million in U.S. funds to Hezbollah, elevate HAMAS’ CAIR on Capitol Hill, and block computer tracking of visa violators in the U.S., at the behest of the Arab American Institute’s Jim Zogby. So, clearly, Al-Jubeir’s “dating” (euphemism) of Brown was effective. As you’ll recall, while Al-Jubeir was, um, “dating” (again, euphemism) Brown, she was NBC White House correspondent, and he managed to co-opt her from covering any of the shenanigans when Saudi then-Crown Prince Abdullah demanded no women in the air traffic control tower or on the tarmac at the Waco airport when he flew in to hang out at the Bush ranch in Crawford, Texas.
So, this plot of the Shi’ite Iranians targeting the Sunni Al-Jubeir Saudi–well, it’s hard to side with either. There would be no tears from me if they’d have carried out their plot, then gotten theirs in return. (I’d only worry about the innocent American lives that might be caught in the attack.) But the pan-Muslim Obamaniks can’t have that. Their duty is to protect all Muslims above Americans. That’s how they do it.
Two individuals have been charged in New York for their alleged participation in a plot directed by elements of the Iranian government to murder the Saudi Ambassador to the United States with explosives while the Ambassador was in the United States. . . .
A criminal complaint filed today in the Southern District of New York charges Manssor Arbabsiar, a 56-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen holding both Iranian and U.S. passports, and Gholam Shakuri, an Iran-based member of Iran’s Qods Force, which is a special operations unit of the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) that is said to sponsor and promote terrorist activities abroad.
Both defendants are charged with conspiracy to murder a foreign official; conspiracy to engage in foreign travel and use of interstate and foreign commerce facilities in the commission of murder-for-hire; conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction (explosives); and conspiracy to commit an act of international terrorism transcending national boundaries. Arbabsiar is further charged with an additional count of foreign travel and use of interstate and foreign commerce facilities in the commission of murder-for-hire.
Shakuri remains at large. Arbabsiar was arrested on Sept. 29, 2011, at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and will make his initial appearance today before in federal court in Manhattan. He faces a maximum potential sentence of life in prison if convicted of all the charges. . . .
The criminal complaint alleges that, from the spring of 2011 to October 2011, Arbabsiar and his Iran-based co-conspirators, including Shakuri of the Qods Force, have been plotting the murder of the Saudi Ambassador to the United States. In furtherance of this conspiracy, Arbabsiar allegedly met on a number of occasions in Mexico with a DEA confidential source (CS-1) who has posed as an associate of a violent international drug trafficking cartel. According to the complaint, Arbabsiar arranged to hire CS-1 and CS-1’s purported accomplices to murder the Ambassador, and Shakuri and other Iran-based co-conspirators were aware of and approved the plan. With Shakuri’s approval, Arbabsiar has allegedly caused approximately $100,000 to be wired into a bank account in the United States as a down payment to CS-1 for the anticipated killing of the Ambassador, which was to take place in the United States.
According to the criminal complaint, the IRCG is an arm of the Iranian military that is composed of a number of branches, one of which is the Qods Force. The Qods Force conducts sensitive covert operations abroad, including terrorist attacks, assassinations and kidnappings, and is believed to sponsor attacks against Coalition Forces in Iraq. In October 2007, the U.S. Treasury Department designated the Qods Force for providing material support to the Taliban and other terrorist organizations.
The complaint alleges that Arbabsiar met with CS-1 in Mexico on May 24, 2011, where Arbabsiar inquired as to CS-1’s knowledge with respect to explosives and explained that he was interested in, among other things, attacking an embassy of Saudi Arabia. In response, CS-1 allegedly indicated that he was knowledgeable with respect to C-4 explosives. In June and July 2011, the complaint alleges, Arbabsiar returned to Mexico and held additional meetings with CS-1, where Arbabsiar explained that his associates in Iran had discussed a number of violent missions for CS-1 and his associates to perform, including the murder of the Ambassador.
In a July 14, 2011, meeting in Mexico, CS-1 allegedly told Arbabsiar that he would need to use four men to carry out the Ambassador’s murder and that his price for carrying out the murder was $1.5 million. Arbabsiar allegedly agreed and stated that the murder of the Ambassador should be handled first, before the execution of other attacks. Arbabsiar also allegedly indicated he and his associates had $100,000 in Iran to pay CS-1 as a first payment toward the assassination and discussed the manner in which that payment would be made.
During the same meeting, Arbabsiar allegedly described to CS-1 his cousin in Iran, who he said had requested that Arbabsiar find someone to carry out the Ambassador’s assassination. According to the complaint, Arbabsiar indicated that his cousin was a “big general” in the Iranian military; that he focuses on matters outside Iran and that he had taken certain unspecified actions related to a bombing in Iraq.
In a July 17, 2011, meeting in Mexico, CS-1 noted to Arbabsiar that one of his workers had already traveled to Washington, D.C., to surveill the Ambassador. CS-1 also raised the possibility of innocent bystander casualties. The complaint alleges that Arbabsiar made it clear that the assassination needed to go forward, despite mass casualties, telling CS-1, “They want that guy [the Ambassador] done [killed], if the hundred go with him f**k ‘em.” CS-1 and Arbabsiar allegedly discussed bombing a restaurant in the United States that the Ambassador frequented. When CS-1 noted that others could be killed in the attack, including U.S. senators who dine at the restaurant, Arbabsiar allegedly dismissed these concerns as “no big deal.
Like I said, we shouldn’t interfere in these things. Instead, we should do as Muslims prefer and . . . LET aLLAH SORT IT OUT.
