A "Chain of Plots"

In addition to bemoaning the nation’s failure to train skilled workers for its private industry, CBS News is still hyping the Iranian Terror Comedy, reporting today that our government says that the plot may have been part of a “chain of such plots” and quoting no less of an illuminary than Senator Dianne Feinstein. She chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is an oxymoron of the highest order imaginable. While I thought this might be her last term in office, it seems I am going to have the great pleasure of voting against her next year. No, it does not matter who runs against her; I would vote for my cat against her.

It also quotes quite a few other people without naming them because, “All of the officials requested anonymity in order to provide details from classified analyses and an active criminal case,” whatever that means. I'm pretty sure it means that they did not want the whole world pointing fingers at them and laughing their asses off.

It just blows my mind that our government is going to take this case, revolving around an alcoholic used car salesman who kept losing his glasses and cell phone, and who is naming nonexistent coconspirators, to the United Nations as a basis for requesting additional harsh sanctions against Iran.
