There seems to be a growing scepticism in the media, and in public comment, towards the credibility of this story. What do the Iranians have to gain? Why try to use Mexican gangsters for the mission? Why choose a not very high ranking (certainly not Saudi Royalty) target? What are the chances of contacting a DEA agent undercover in the Mexican gang?Why choose to carry out "the plot" in the US when there are other softer targets? This is not a Hollywood script as one American spokesperson described it, although it seems very similar to many 3rd rate B movies story lines. There are echo's of Colin Powell’s presentation to the UN of the Disney Cartoons showing facilities and hardware for the "Weapons of mass destruction" justification for invading Iraq. This latest story is even more incredible.
