The somewhat botched assassination attempt in Bangkok yesterday in which an Iranian assassin blew his own legs off instead of even getting close to any target provides more circumstantial evidence that Iran is also behind the attacks on Israeli embassy staff in Tblisi, Georgia and New Delhi, India. Just last year, an Iranian plot to kill the Saudi ambassador in the US with the help of Mexican criminals was uncovered.
My own encounters with Iranian Intelligence in 2009 already left me less than impressed, but these recent plots are at least as ridiculous as they are dangerous.
The incompetence might be explained by this secret video which shows the Iranian Intelligence Service’s training for their assassination attempts on foreign soil:
(From the film “Four Lions“.)
Does anyone still think that nuclear weapons in the hands of the Islamic Republic of Iran are a good idea?
