This week, it was reported by international news agencies that there was an assassination attempt on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her recent trip to Israel. Oddly enough, the story was reported on both Israeli radio and Reuters, which both went silent shortly after the reports. Reports from Iranian news sources were not accepted by US media outlets. The mixed reports have left some baffled as to whether or not the Israeli sources and Reuters were making all of this up in the first place or if they’ve been asked to keep the issue silent. n
The reports happen to coincide with Right Wing accusations of Muslim extremists being inside Hillary Clinton’s circle of advisers. Additionally, there was an attack in Bulgaria this week, with Israeli officials claiming that the attacks were sponsored by the Iranian government.
Some are speculating that these reports may be connected by the fact that the Israeli government is working to convince the United States to back it’s country in an attack against Iran. It is also noted that the alleged assassination attempt on Secretary of State Clinton was not reported in mainstream US media because some have an interest in suppressing this information. Such a revelation would be an embarrassment to the Israeli government, given that security protocols dictate that a car should never have gotten close enough to fire upon her convoy.
We don’t know exactly what’s going on here, but it sounds like the Israeli government could be duping us in the same way that former President George W. Bush duped us into the Iraq War. By creating an environment in which it appears that war is necessary, the Israelis may get the green light to attack Iran that they are seeking.
