Then we get a point by point rebuttal of the plausibility of the plot involving an Iranian/American used car salesman and a Mexican drug cartel hit man, who according to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder planned to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador at his favorite Georgetown restaurant. Rasool Nafisi, who has studied the Pasdaran, the Guardian of Revolution in Iran, joins us to discuss the growing tensions between Saudi Arabia and Iran that could lead to a Sunni/Shia confrontation in the Middle East.
