The Persian Pothead? Seriously?

So wait, this loser is the Iranian secret agent who was going to blow the Saudi ambassador to kingdom come, and maybe start a Mideast war? The Quds Force put their trust in this Persian Pothead? This can’t be real, can it? I suppose anything could happen, but come on … this Mansour Arbabsiar mullet-meister? Jason Lee, call your agent, and start working on your Farsi accent. I’m thinking “Raising Arizona” meets “Syriana.”
