(CNN) – Even if the Justice Department and the FBI are proven correct about their allegations against "elements" of the Iranian regime, we may still never know why they may have wanted to kill Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States, Adel al-Jubeir, a man I've known for many years.
Back in late 2002 when he was national security adviser to then-Crown Prince (and now King) Abdullah, he was very helpful to CNN and me during our live coverage from the Prince Sultan Air Base near Riyadh. At the time, the U.S. military had some 5,000 troops and dozens of warplanes based there – as the Bush administration geared up for the invasion of Iraq.

Pretty much sounds like the SEIU trained Iran like they did Obama.
Simple Ahmadinejad and the Grand Ayatollah are two big bullies in that region.
Maybe we were supposed to think that someone else did it.
Iran knows that Obama is a spineless liberal who loves Muslims and is scared to make a decision.
Is that really a question? Fine! Here's the Answer... Because that nut head Ahmadenijad (if that's how he spells his name) is in power, duh. That's the best reason why. He threatened Israel with War. He says the US Federal Government caused 9.11. What a dumb leader!!!
because the mexican drug lords said they would
It's OBVIOUS – Iran wants to start a war with Saudi Arabia and what would be more effective than using the United States as "ground zero????" Maybe Iran has WMD they want to test out!!
The tea party has become the Bubonic plague on our country. Sit back you sleazy, lying, limp wristed teabaggers, and see how a real president wages war on terror.
Can you imagine a teabagger or republican saying Obama is spineless, and then have to defend Mttens the flip flopping liar?
It looks like Murdoch and Fox need to pay more money to terrorists to attack America.
We have been letting Iran get away with way too much for way too long. An Iranian made 107mm rocket almost killed my son last Christmas Eve while he was serving in Iraq. Many other American soldiers have been killed and wounded by Iranian supplied munitions in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Prior to the Carter Administration we used to have a CIA who would take care of these vermin. It is time for payback.
Fakes News will be particularly upset and give this lots of air time because its second largest shareholder is Saudi Arabian.
"This is a simple question and answer: If Iran can come to the USA under the shield of the UN, they can do what they want, and then just deny they had anything to do with everything. This is the Middle East! Just as the (so called) west, has gone throught the past cengtrury, the Arab's have been switching sicdes for decades. Any date/time any Arab country, can switch! They are the Old-Slave-Driven Nation of Billions!"
Simple.........make the US seem incompetent to protect him from such an attack.
You seriously needed to ask this question?
East and West friendy relations swith the Arab's, go back as far as: The Darly Arabian and the Byerly Turk, and that's jusgt about as much dialog there is is! All they really want to talk about with thed USA, is who's going to win the Breeders Cup! If you can do that, you have a friend for life!"
