Here’s a beauty.  “Iran…willing to attack on US soil, US intelligence report finds” screams a headline for an article on the front page of the Washington Post.

But para 3 begins “US officials said they have seen no intelligence to indicated that Iran is actively plotting attacks on US soil.”  The article then goes on to cite the alleged Iranian-Mexican drug dealer plot to kill the Saudi Ambassador in Washington – which has been outside the government regarded almost universally as a fabrication – as evidence that “some Iranian officials…are now more willing to conduct an attack in the United States…”

Yes indeed, the threat from Iran will be, like Matthew 26:11’s observation about the poor, always with us.
