Former CIA officer Philip Giraldi discusses the inside information on the alleged Iranian plot to assassinate Saudi Arabia’s ambassador to the US; indications that the plot was legitimate but an amateurish rogue operation – not the work of Iran’s government; escalating talk of “all options on the table” for military retaliation against Iran; and why it’s never a good sign when Saudi Arabia and Israel agree on a common regional enemy.

MP3 here. (18:30)

Philip Giraldi, a former CIA officer, is a contributing editor to The American Conservative and executive director of the Council for the National Interest. He writes regularly for Antiwar.com.

  1. Who do these guys work for? Directly or indirectly, who do they work for? Knowingly or unknowingly, who do they work for? Who benefits from such assassinations? Who? As everyone agrees, such stupid assassinations are not in Iranian interests. So who does benefit? Who wants war with Iran? There is no other benefit except the starting of a new war, a war with Iran. Is it so difficult to understand who is behind this? Screw the details – we know who isn´t behind this – Iran isn´t, because there is no benefit for Iran.

  2. right on the money sir…

  3. Yet another narco-intelligence "deep event"?!?

    Call Peter Dale Scott. He's been documenting them for decades now.

    I doubt the public will ever know who 'really' did this – but the the 'qui bono' is clear (USA-Saud-Israel). Time to start watching which high-level officials have been willing to 'gin up'/'sex up' this deep event. The Ray McGovern piece on this website "Petraeus’s CIA Fuels Iran Murder Plot" seems like a good place to start.

  4. I think Ray McGovern has it nailed. General Petraeus–that four-star neocon hack turned CIA Director–is more than willing to disseminate lies at the behest of the warmongering Israel-Firsters.

    The U.S. Government lies about anything and everything. You can't expect it to be telling the truth about this alleged plot.

  5. Breaking news – the NYTimes is reporting this Iranian Quds Force guy 'Gholam Shakuri' has been visiting 'Neocon and Israel Central' at the MEK Camp in Kurdistan-­Iraq (Camp Ashraf ) as well as in WASHINGTON­

    So this guy is a MEK-member­, and MEK is closely aligned with the Israeli Lobby, Avigdor Lieberman, and Israeli Special Forces/Mos­sad

    This is now a False Flag Operation' until proven otherwise – the Israeli Lobby and/or Israel itself it most likely repeating what they did to us in Iraq and running a False Flag Operation – essentiall­y the same thing they did with their Iraqi 'Curveball­' and the 'Yellowcak­e Uranium Fraud' to lie us into Iraq

    NYT:
    http://www­.nytimes.c­om/2011/10­/19/world/­middleeast­/iran-says­-saudi-plo­t-defendan­t-belongs-­to-exile-g­roup.html

    This would point to an Israeli/Ne­ocon connection on the Iranian side of the equation –
    =
    "Interpol has found new evidence showing 'Gholam Shakuri' … is a key member of the MEK "
