  1. RE: “The question is, who do we cast as Arbabsiar? Maybe Travolta or Nicholas Cage or Matt Damon as the hapless boob?” ~ R.S.

    MY SUGGESTION: What about a very talkative Mr. Bean with overtones of Mr. Magoo and Chauncy Gardner?

    RE: “Obama is muttering about sanctions and seems to harbor the delusion that this new development will cause Russian and China to change their tunes and endorse even more punitive sanctions than currently exist. What it will do is give Putin and Hu Jintao a good laugh, I’m afraid.” ~ R.S.

    MY COMMENT: Obama and the Democrats weren’t expecting campaign contributions from Putin and Hu Jintao anyway. And it should do wonders with certain big-time, deep-pocketed bundlers like…


    (excerpts)…[Haim] Saban, in a 2004 New York Times interview,[3] ascribed his interest in politics to his concern for Israel: “I’m a one-issue guy and my issue is Israel.”[3] In pursuit of his concerns, Saban was described in 2004 as “throwing his weight and money around Washington and, increasingly, the world, trying to influence all things Israeli.”[3]…
    Q – You meet frequently and quite intimately with Israeli and American decision-makers. What do you tell than about the situation regarding Iran?
    A – “The Iranians are serious. They mean business. [Mahmoud] Ahmadinejad is not a madman. [….] When I see Ahmadinejad, I see Hitler. They speak the same language. His motivation is also clear: the return of the Mahdi is a supreme goal. And for a religious person of deep self-persuasion, that supreme goal is worth the liquidation of five and a half million Jews. We cannot allow ourselves that. Nuclear weapons in the hands of a religious leadership that is convinced that the annihilation of Israel will bring about the emergence of a new Muslim caliphate? Israel cannot allow that. This is no game. It’s truly an existential danger.”[2]…
    …Saban has been a generous and consistent donor to the United States Democratic Party according to his mandatory Federal Election Commission filings…

    1. Wow! Imagine “Nuclear weapons in the hands of a religious leadership that is convinced that ..it is ordained to push the US, and much of the West, into wars against its enemies…” Just imagine.

      I am much more worried about the nuclear threat that Israel represents than that of Iran which has no nuclear weapons at this point, anyway. Are Americans aware of how Israel extorts the US because of its bombs?

  2. Assuming that [1] money was transferred to Arbabsiar or Mexican banditos by Iranian gov’t guys, [2] that the subjet of the FIRST Arbabsiar contact with the Mexicans was drugs, [3] that the Mexicans first raised the idea if the Saudi Ambassador (not a natural idfea when talking a purely drug deal with Iran), THEN Arbabsiar and presumably the Iranian money-man has/have participated in attempted drug dealing. Jail him/them for that.

    BUT NOT TERRORISM (or even CONSPIRACY TO DO TERRORISM) on the part of the IRANian money-man unless the transferror of the money KNEW that assassination was part of what was being paid for. More likely, Mr. Bumbler-siar was misusing money (or proposing to do so) for a purpose which the provider of the money knew nothing of and never agreed to.

  3. RS: I know what you mean by “winced”. It is physically painful to see this stuff bandied about by Obama but now we know what “audacity of hope” means.
