Botched Thai terror plot tied to Iran?
Three Iranians, in custody after bombs exploded prematurely, aren’t talking
Question of the Day
Over the weekend, authorities seized a blue Honda motorcycle they say was purchased by Ms. Rohani in December and used by Mr. Sedaghatzadeh. It was found abandoned on a Bangkok street on Saturday.
The most damning evidence was found in the destroyed house: two more portable-radio bombs, each filled with one or two pounds of plastic explosives and ball-bearings.
The bombs had round, coin-like magnets on them, similar to the “sticky” bombs used against Israeli envoys in a foiled attack in Tbilisi, Georgia, on Feb. 13 and a blast in New Delhi the same day that injured four people, including a diplomat’s wife.
Thai officials say the Bangkok plot was aimed at Israeli diplomats, too. Israel has gone further, alleging the evidence clearly points to Iran as being behind all three plots.

Independent voices from the The Washington Times Communities
The cold hard truth about politics in America today and the state of this once great nation.
Never apologetic. Never afraid. Lieutenant Colonel Allen B. West joins Communities to bring tales from the biggest Foxhole of them all, the one inside the Beltway.
Criticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfills the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things.
Politics, economics, and business from a real world perspective.
