Iran, perceiving threat from West, willing to attack on U.S. soil, U.S. intelligence report finds
By Greg Miller, Updated: Tuesday, January 31, 10:59 AM




U.S. intelligence agencies believe that Iran is prepared to launch terrorist attacks inside the United States in response to perceived threats from America and its allies, the U.S. spy chief said Tuesday.

Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. said in prepared testimony that an alleged Iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador in Washington that was uncovered last year reflects an aggressive new willingness within the upper ranks of the Islamist republic to authorize attacks against the United States.
That plot “shows that some Iranian officials — probably including Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei — have changed their calculus and are now more willing to conduct an attack in the United States in response to real or perceived U.S. actions that threaten the regime,” Clapper said in the testimony, which was submitted to the Senate Intelligence Committee in advance of a threat assessment hearing Tuesday. “We are also concerned about Iranian plotting against U.S. or allied interests overseas.”

The assessment signals a potentially dire new direction in the adversarial relationship between the United States and Iran, at a time when there are indications that a covert campaign is already underway to thwart Iran’s alleged ambition to develop a nuclear weapon.

Clapper’s warning about Iran was delivered as part of the U.S. intelligence community’s annual overview of the nation’s most serious national security concerns. As the hearing got underway, Clapper signaled that the United States is seeking to avoid a violent confrontation with Iran, instead pushing for more and more sanctions while also monitoring the possibility of a preemptive strike by Israel.

“Our hope is that the sanctions ... would have the effect of inducing a change in Iranian policy toward their apparent pursuit of a nuclear capability,” Clapper said. “Obviously this is a very sensitive issue right now. We’re doing a lot with the Israelis.”

Clapper’s testimony also calls attention to a heightened concern over cyber-related threats, as well as the diminished but persistent danger to the United States posed by al-Qaeda.

This year’s assessment is the first to evaluate al-Qaeda’s capabilities since Osama bin Laden was killed in a U.S. commando raid in May. That blow, combined with the toll taken by subsequent strikes and raids, has destroyed al-Qaeda’s core.

As a result, Clapper said in the testimony, the United States is entering a “critical transitional phase for the terrorist threat,” in which smaller-bore strikes from regional nodes are more likely than elaborate, mass-casualty plots.

If the pressure on al-Qaeda can be maintained, “there is a better-than-even chance that decentralization will lead to fragmentation,” Clapper said. The terrorist group “will seek to execute smaller, simpler plots to demonstrate relevance to the global jihad.”

The group’s affiliate in Yemen continues to be seen as the most likely source of plots targeting the United States. But the death of U.S.-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki in a CIA drone strike in Yemen last year has at least temporarily eroded the affiliate’s ability to mount international attacks.

If we believe what several sorces have said, Iran had plans to kill the Saudi ambassador to the US/UN? in either NY or DC, which is war on US soil.

Shades of Geo. W. Bush and weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD's)..
The war mongers are at it again, in all countries.
I wish they would put the guys that makes these wars (the politicians, the weapons dealers, the elitists who sell weapons to all sides, etc) on the front lines. I bet we would see an almost immediate end to war, to all wars.
None of the people or the nations involved with this are to be trusted. Each side has an evil agenda and it will cost only more American lives, money, time and effort, and in the end only the politicians and oil companies will win...
Its time to put an end to this type of insanity.
What if they had a a war and none of us showed up for it...

They already got caught trying that one ... about a month or so ago as I remember. Plot never got off the ground, but was supposedly tied back to Iran.

DevaronDLH,

Don't worry we won't have a war until after the 2012 elections and then only if they give the go ahead to print more USD, since, at the moment we can't afford to pay for another war. The wild card in all this is a possible first strike by Isreal who you know has been told, NO don't do it, by President Obama. If Isreal reacts prior to December, the US will not join in. If Russia and China go after Isreal,Obama will throw them under the bus......IMHO
