The Worldnutdaily has an article claiming, with no evidence other than an alleged source within Iranian intelligence, that Iran planned the Boston bombings and helped carry them out. There’s almost nothing in the article of any substance, just that unsourced claim:
Qasem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s Quds Forces, ordered reconnaissance and intelligence gathering on various events and public gatherings in the United States years ago, culminating in the bombings at the Boston Marathon one week ago, WND has learned.
According to a source within Iran’s intelligence services, the Islamic regime’s Quds Forces, a special unit of the Revolutionary Guards in charge of extraterritorial operations, have done extensive planning on gatherings, events and high-value targets in the United States for some time, but for two years focused on events such as the Boston Marathon…
The new source in the Guards intelligence unit said the regime’s Quds Forces collaborated with Hezbollah and their operational centers in Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. The operational support teams on the Boston bombings can be linked to those centers, he said.
If this was a credible news source, one might actually take it seriously. But this is the same outlet that last week was claiming that North Korea was behind the bombings. By next week it will be a secret cabal made up of Iran, North Korea, American Atheists and the gay agenda.
