Turn about fair play?
Posted by: McQ on Thursday, May 08, 2008

Iran is miffed:
Iranian officials accused the US and Britain of having links to a group responsible for a mosque explosion last month that killed 14 people and injured more than 200, the official news agency reported on Thursday.

Immediately after the April 12 blast in the southern city of Shiraz, Iranian officials said it was caused by a homemade bomb.
Then they said:
The following day, the government changed the account and said it was caused by ammunition leftover from a recent military exhibition in the mosque.
Live ammunition at a military display at a mosque? The religion of peace - how appropriate is that?

Then the story changed again:
But Thursday's report by the official news agency IRNA again suggested the explosion was an attack, not an accident.

"The group that planted the bomb had been in contact with some western countries, particularly Britain and the United States," IRNA quoted Intelligence Minister Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejehi as saying.
Of course - why admit incompetence when you can propagandize the event and blame the Great Satan? And if it was actually a home-made bomb, why admit domestic dissatisfaction when you can blame an external enemy?
Ejehi told reporters late on Wednesday that Iranian security agents have detained six suspects in the explosion.
My guess is they'll end up confessing to whatever Iranian security deems most useful for their purposes.

The little dog yaps again.

Realizing the importance of the case, my men are rounding up twice the usual number of suspects.

And we’re supposed to trust these people when they say they have peaceful inetntions as regards the Nukes they’re trying to build?

And even assuming peaceful intent, can we trust them not to muck it up, and leave nuclear weapons behind following an exhibition at a Mosque?
