Michael Ledeen Breaks Some (More) News

Michael Ledeen is not deterred by his announcement in January that rocked the world (in laughter because it wasn't true) that...

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Iran’s Supreme Leader, is dead.

Michael Ledeen has more information he needs to share with us, so please don't laugh. Funny, each bit of information he shares are justification for actions to be taken against Iran. Today in the Corner, we learn new things about Iran. It ties them to 9/11. Apparently, even though Osama Bin Laden is a radical Sunni, hatred for the red, white, and blue is just too powerful an emotion to let a 1000+ year old religious feud stand in the way of in his quest for vengeance.

I've been told for some time now that April 9th—tomorrow—is a green-letter day in the Middle East, because the Iranians have planned some sort of nuclear announcement or demonstration (Ahmadinezhad is going to Natanz, it seems) and are also sponsoring what their leaders refer to in private as "a new intifada in Iraq."

I don't know if it's true, but it certainly fits; the Iranians love "disappeared" leaders. Their messianic leader is the "vanished Imam;" they "disappeared" bin Laden after he was routed from Afghanistan (he hasn't even made a virtual appearance for nearly three years, if you're keeping track) ; and Moqtada has been "disappeared" of late, which would put him in perfect position, Iranian-style, to lead an insurrection.

Don't overlook the change in terrorist strategy: the attempt to terrify and thus enlist the Iraqi people against the Iraqi government and coalition forces seems to have become counterproductive. Otherwise, why suddenly put the population off limits? That seems important to me.

So, we have a trifecta here. I am honored. Osama Bin Laden is the guest of the Iranians, who are going to do something nuclear tomorrow, and it's all in conjunction with Al-Sadr, who when not busy ordering his people to blow up Sunnis, is plotting with Sunni Osama Bin Laden.

Michael Ledeen only knows the half of it though I am afraid. There are three other key facts that make me believe that the Iranian or shall I say "green peril" is much more widespread than even Ledeen imagines.

1. Ahmadinezhad is the guy who greenlighted 'According To Jim' on ABC.

2. If you play the Iranian National Anthem backwards it says Paul will be dead. We declare jihad on him.

3. The city of Tehran has banned baseball, mothers, apple pie, and Chevrolet.

This can not stand. I wonder if Michael Ledeen has any idea what we should ever do with such damaging information? I know. He wants us to engage Iran in diplomacy to work out our differences. That must be it surely.
