It sounds like both those things, because that’s undoubtedly what it is. DC, with its many agencies, has long been the world’s Hollywood in terms of scripting events, and long been a right-wing enclave.
And flagrant violation of international law is one thing this administration won’t stand for.
So which is it? Holder’s in a delicate position here. Although this can be made into a big deal and help to take the focus off the accusations that he either allowed or was ignorant of an FBI anti-gun running deal in Mexico that turned out to actually be a gun-running deal, the juggling of claims – Iranian leaders are responsible, but they didn’t know, or didn’t “sign off” on it – is so close to the claims in his own situation as to perhaps underscore it rather than take the heat off. Seems to me he’s taking a pretty big gamble. Or he would be if the US corporate press were a free press and US citizens paid any attention at all to what was being done versus what is being said.
First, the script calls for a villain, it is the role of the DEA in this case to nurture one.
Only if they’re a party to the script or dependent upon American monetary aid.
We desperately need better writers.
Well, we are putting a lot of money into “Homeland security;” we have to have something show for it.
Hey, times are tough. Desperate times – desperate measures, you know. Besides, they don’t have to do better than this. This works. Why waste energy, talent and money where you don’t need it?
When Hell freezes over. Or the end of the world, which may be right around the corner courtesy of harebrained schemes like this one.
As I said, this works. Americans watch too many “action” movies, and that’s the way we think. When was the last time you saw an action movie with believable characters doing believable things?
They don’t think that. They know it.
Yes, well, it is campaign season.
Scarier than any “terrorist plot,” real or scripted.
