Iran says CIA agents arrested ahead of Feb. 11 rally

Sun, 07 Feb 2010

Iran said Saturday it arrested seven people, including two Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operatives, who planned to stoke unrest and violence on a march scheduled for February 11.

The rally on Thursday will commemorate the 31st victory of the Islamic Revolution in Iran.

Intelligence forces, according to Borna News Agency, arrested the men who had plans to leave the country for Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and then head to the United States.

According to the report, some of those arrested work for the US-backed Radio Farda, a Persian language station based in Prague and Washington.

Here we go again.

By the way, ever notice how many news agencies Iran has?

When in reality they only have one – the government.

      Jimmah’s got a heart? Who knew? I thought that was just an urban legend…..you know, like Jimmah’s got a brain!!

      Is Jimmah also short in the courage department? And, just a guess, but is a small dog involved somewhere?

    Is the Obama administration building their new CIA through attrition?
