About that assassination plot

For  years, U.S. hawks have insisted that Iran and its alleged proxy force Hezbollah are nefariously building up ties with governments and criminal organizations across Latin America, including drug cartels.

If the official story about the alleged plot to assassinate the Saudi Arabian ambassador in Washington is true, and the Iranian government indeed reached out to a used car salesman in Texas to get in touch with these cartels, then obviously its ties to said cartels are, well, a bit overblown. And as I write for Inter Press Service, if the official story is false, then the dire threat purportedly posed by Iran’s dealings in Latin America has not materialized like promised.

    I don't know, I bet there are quite a few used car salesmen in Texas who you could talk to if you wanted to get in touch with an assassin. Probably more of the "my husband is cheating and I want his insurance money" variety. But seriously, a great point that I hadn't heard anyone make yet.
