Iran Hangs 3 US Hirelings For Bombing

From those defenders of the faith at Reuters:

Iran hangs three over deadly mosque bombing: report

Sat May 30

TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iran executed in public on Saturday three men convicted of involvement in a bomb attack on a mosque that killed 25 people, the official IRNA news agency reported…

"Three people convicted of being involved in the recent terrorist bombing in Zahedan were hanged in public on Saturday morning," IRNA said, adding that the executions took place near the mosque where the bombing took place.

A Sunni opposition group named Jundollah (God’s Soldiers), which Iran says is part of the Islamist al Qaeda network and backed by the United States, said it was behind the bombing, Saudi-owned Al Arabiya television said on Friday.

Ebrahim Hamidi, a local judiciary official, said the men were convicted after going through the normal judiciary process, adding that they were also involved in past "terrorist activities."

"The bombing happened with the explosives these three convicted criminals brought to the country," Hamidi said.

"They were convicted as ‘mohareb’ (one who wages war against God), ‘corrupt on the earth’ and acting against national security," he said

Iran has in the past accused the United States of supporting Sunni rebels operating on its border with Pakistan. Tehran repeated the claim on Friday, saying the "terrorists were equipped by America." Washington denied the allegation.

Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei condemned the bombing, saying "no one can doubt that the hands of … some interfering powers and their spying services are bloodied by the blood of the innocent."

He called on Iranians "to pay attention to the conspiracies of the enemies."

Obviously these bravos got a fair trial with all the concomitant rights to appeal.

Otherwise, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and the rest of our professional moral superiors would be in full cry.

But they are silent. So justice was clearly served.

And now Iran can move ahead with blaming the US without the risk of any niggling details getting in their way.

    This is so rich – since it al Sadr & Iranian armed ‘freedom’ fighters that made the surge in Iraq a necessity.

    The US bombed Hiroshima & Nagasaki to bring an end to all the dying in WWII – too bad by the end of his 8 years – Bush didn’t have the guts to bomb Tehran to bring an end to all the dying in the Middle East. And we know that The One ™ is too damn busy thugging his way to el Presidente for life to bother with a little ole (smaller than Rhode Island) country on the verge of having ‘the bomb.’

    A lot more people are going to die in WWIII after Iran ‘wipes’ Israel from the map – but hey since the moonbat left would never serve in the Armed Forces – why should The One ™ care.

    Forget Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. Where’s Al Sharpton and the noose patrol?

    Isn’t this like Obama endangering Americans going around apologizing and saying Americans are bad. Rueters spreads propaganda that endangers Americans too. Duh. Muslims get hung by noose, Americans heads are chopped off, then hung.
