Iran and the Plot to Blow Up JFK Airport
One would have a lot more to say about the Iranian-Venezuelan connection today, what with Chavez and Ahmadinejad holding love fests with striking frequency. Or maybe not. Maybe some crowd of self-appointed media censors gathers in a virtual chat room every day to figure out how to downplay the stories most important for the American future. One way would be to bury such stories in the local news, even one about an international plot to kill thousands of Americans that involves the world's leading sponsor of terrorism, and which happens to be the central ingredient in one of this administration's most embarrassing and dangerous failures: the "extended hand" to our enemies gambit.
If I were the headline writer, I’d have said something like “Accused Iranian Agent In Plot to Blow Up JFK.” The actual headline is "Trial Focuses on Iran Ties of Kennedy Plot Suspect," (which I originally thought was about the Kennedy Assassination).
One final point: that crowd of anti-Semites that insists we have nothing to fear from Iran, and says that anyone who wants to topple the evil regime in Tehran is doing it at the behest of Likud, will ignore this story and others like it. They don’t want the American people to see that Iran is a threat to us. Better to blame the Jews for it all. Yes that’s you, Walt and Mearsheimer, and you, Buchanan, and you, Giraldi, and…
That crowd is going to get a lot of Americans killed one of these days. Just ask Amir Kadir. He seems to have tried.
