OTHER THAN THAT, THE CASE IS AIRTIGHT:

U.S. Officials Rejected Key Source on '94 Bombing (Gareth Porter, 1/23/08, IPS)

The Iranian defector who was the source of Argentina's allegation that Iranian officials began planning the Jul. 18, 1994 terror bombing of a Jewish community centre at a meeting nearly a year earlier had been dismissed as unreliable by U.S. officials, according to the FBI agent who led the U.S. team assisting the investigation in 1997-98.

The FBI agent, James Bernazzani, also says Argentine investigators had no real leads on an Iranian link to the bombing when his team was in Argentina. Three top officials in the U.S. Embassy in Buenos Aires at the time -- including Ambassador James Cheek -- have confirmed the absence of evidence linking Iran to the bombing, which killed 85 people and wounded another 300.


Iran and Hezbollah have done enough that there's no need to make stuff up.

We're handling both without breaking a sweat. It'll get even easier as the relationship becomes an alliance.
