cracks in the facade

Un-named American government "officials" are expressing doubts about the administration's latest ham-handed attempts to concoct a phony "terrorist plot" they can use as a pretext for attacking Iran.

Reuters has the story via Talking Points Memo.

While President Barack Obama and top aides have been united this week in grave warnings over an alleged Iranian assassination plot, some U.S. government officials are privately expressing disquiet that the outlandish-sounding plan has triggered U.S. calls for stiff new action against Iran.
