Saudi Ambassador Assasination Plot By Iran Leaves Questions

The reported plan by Iran to assassinate a Saudi Ambassador named Adel al-Jubeir is both shocking and confusing. The Obama Administration has uncovered the alleged scheme and arrested two men: an American-Iranian, Manssor Arbabsiar, and Gholam Shakuri, an Iranian. Both were fingered in the so-called “murder-for-hire” plot that involved paying a Mexican drug cartel to […]
