  1. Nice to confirm what would have been widely suspected. Mossad and/or CIA “done it”. But was a crime committed? And under whose laws?

    It is an odd world, no?, when all countries decry crime — but all countries (rich enough?) deploy criminals employed directly or indirectly by their so-called “defence”, “intelligence”, “police”, and other parts of their “security” apparatus.

    Is assassination a crime? Is it terrorism?

    Assassination is a crime, generally, where done, even if not regarded as a crime in the place from which it is ordered to be done and paid for to be done. But if a country’s own agents do the assassination, then is it a crime in that country? (USA has refused to prosecute our torturers. Torture is formally a crime in the USA’s laws. Does its criminal nature depend on where it is done?)

    The “is it a crime” question more-or-less assumes non-overlapping jurisdictional territories. It is a crime where done but not where paid for. But jurisdictions (by which crimes and the possibility of punishing them judicially are legally defined) are funny things.

    USA seems sometimes to expand its so-called criminal jurisdiction to cover the whole world so that “terrorism” if practiced (or planned or contemplated) anywhere in the world is a “crime” punishable in USA’s courts. This means that an assassination — possibly characterizable as “terrorism” under some USA laws — might also be not-a-crime in the USA because the assassination, although “terrorism”, was done by USA’s “defense” or “intelligence” or “police” or other “security” apparatus. (And, of course, a decision to non-prosecute a crime sort-of makes the crime not-a-crime.)

    All this makes me not a little uncomfortable.

    1. “…cover the whole world so that “terrorism” if practiced (or planned or contemplated) anywhere in the world is a “crime” punishable in USA’s courts.” Actually, the USG can do without the courts altogether. As I understand NDAA albeit poorly, US jurisdiction extends to any “belligerent” act against the US or any of its allies by virtually anyone including American citizens loosely aligned with unsavory groups LIKE Al Queday and the Taliban, “like” these groups. Such terrorists may be apprehended and jailed without charge, transported anywhere the USG likes or assassinated without benefit of due process.

      A number of assurances have been offered to Americans from the House and from Obama that US citizens will not be so treated under NDAA. These assurances are offered however in lieu of plain language in the legislation excluding US citizens, period. Why? Obviously, the assurances are unreliable and intended to assuage only the gullible.

  2. “My Israeli source confirms Bakhtiar’s claim to be a Mossad agen”
    is it the same source that gave you the Iranian General story ? Or is it the source that gave you the War plan story ?

    The chances that CIA and Mossad will recruit the same person to work for them are equal to the chances you will write your next blog story from Israel.

    This story – despite what your source states – lacks any credibility.

    1. @ Nonsense: No, it’s not. In fact, the only reason you know I published inaccurate information is because I told you so. Which is more than I can say for you. Readers here have proven your claims false & not a word from you to correct the record.

      You have been moderated. Snark by the likes of you is not acceptable. Opinions devoid of facts or evidence, such as what you offered, violate the comment rules. I offer a source proven accurate over scores of report. You offer nothing but snark.

      1. [This comment contained lies, yet another comment violation. After 2 such violations, you are now banned.]
