From the 'there's an Iranian under every bed' department:

Newsweek reports:

"Increasing tensions between Washington and Tehran have revived New York City Police Department concerns that Iranian agents may have already have targeted the city for terror attacks. Such attacks could be aimed at bridges and tunnels, Jewish organizations and Wall Street, NYPD briefers told security execs last fall, according to a person with access to the briefing materials who asked for anonymity because of the sensitive subject matter."

Could this "person with access" who asked for anonymity possibly have been his Dark Lordiness Dick Cheney? I'm just wondering because Sy Hersh mentioned in his interview with Terry Gross this week that Cheney was absolutely convinced Iran was ahead of schedule on building a bomb -- despite all the evidence to the contrary -- and as soon as it was ready it would be handed over to sleeper agents already in the US. Since Cheney wouldn't even allow reporters on the trip back from Afghanistan to quote him directly, only being allowed to attribute his comments to a "senior administration official," [WaPo] I'm just figuring he could behind this story. It's got his finger prints all over it, or claw prints or whatever he has.

Kind of odd the timing of this little tid-bit about Iranians planning to blow up the New York subway, isn't it? Supposedly this briefing happened back in last fall, but we're just hearing about it now? Seems to me, if the NYPD had evidence Iranian agents were casing the subway we would have heard about it sooner. [I wonder if they met with Mohammed Atta in Prague before they moved to New York, too?] Here's yet another example of what I was saying last week: It's all Iran all the time. You can't read a story about anything in the paper nowadays without Iran being involved somehow:

'The pills were in Anna Nicole's fridge, not her stomach, but they came from Tehran a senior administration official said today!'
