"Iran has expressed outrage at charges by the US that it was behind a plot to assassinate the top Saudi Arabian diplomat in Washington and bomb Israeli and Saudi embassies on US soil. US court documents unsealed on Tuesday allege that Iranian agents from the Qods Force, a specialist branch of the Revolutionary Guard, sought to hire hit men from a Mexican drug cartel. But Iran is quickly countering with its own narrative that Washington is desperate to distract attention from severe economic problems, and what Iran calls the spreading 'awakening' of American citizens manifested in the Occupy Wall Street protests." &91;editor's note: As the folks at Antiwar.com already pointed out, this is likely just another "dog wagging" to keep us a-skeered! - SAT%#93; (10/12/11)
