Iranians plot assassinations on US soil--Saudi Ambassador targeted

Five days ago I posted a story about a top Iranian official that called for terrorist attacks "in the heart of Europe." Now we discover the Iranians were plotting to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador in Washington while dining in a Washington restaurant.  According to a news conference by the Justice Department, the Iranian terrorist had also planned to bomb the Saudi and Israeli Embassies.  A criminal complaint, which was unsealed in federal court in New York City Tuesday, identified the two alleged plotters as Manssor Arbabsiar and Gholam Shakuri, both with ties to Iran, Reuters reported. Arbabsiar has been jailed in New York since September and Shakuri remains at large.  Arbabsair, a naturalized U.S. citizen who holds an Iranian passport, allegedly expressed disregard for the collateral damage that the attacks in Washington would have caused.  It is being reported that one of the Iranians had tried to contact the Mexican narco-terrorist Zetas organization to help with the assassination.  I wonder if this information will resonate with the Obama administration and make them realize we need to seal our southern border.  The Iranians kill our soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq with no consequence.  Will the Obama administration finally get tough with the Iranians?  I will post more info when it becomes available.
