US Congress authorized 'covert action' against Iran

Leaders of several House committees in a letter on November 22 (50 days before Iran's N-scientist assassination) urged President Obama to use significant covert action against Iran on the pretext that it has involved in the plot to assassinate the Saudi Ambassador to US.

The assassination of Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan was just 50 days before the authorization for use of covert war against Iran by leaders of several House committees who urged president Obama to take up covert operations against Iran’s facilities and personnel in order to prevent it from its nuclear activities, Habilian reported.

Chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, Rep. Peter King, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations and Management Michael McCaul, and Chairman of the Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence Rep. Patrick Meehan, on November 22, 2011 wrote a letter to President Obama seeking “a strong and effective response” to the fake and nonsensical accusation against Iran’s involvement in the assassination plot to kill Saudi’s ambassador to the United States.

In the 22 November letter to US president, King, McCaul, and Meehan wrote: … “The United States must use all elements of national power against our strategic enemy, the Iranian regime.”

The leaders of several House committees urged Obama “to use significant covert action against the Iranian regime, including against facilities and personnel” whom they claim are “responsible for killing our troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.”

A nuclear scientist, Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan, was martyred when two assailants on a motorcycle attached a magnetic bomb on the side of his car on Wednesday morning. The attack was the fifth daylight attack on the Iranian nuclear scientists.
