Kahlili is a questionable source but he did predict that Canada would be next. He also has several lines indicating that US intelligence was warned and informed about the threat.
We have to see what happens now in France and the UK. There are indications that Hezbollah networks in Europe have been strengthened and activated. The attack in Bulgaria last year is still not solved and widely debated. Israel wants it to be a Hezbollah attack. If definite proof is found that will be a reason for the EU to blacklist Hezbollah. Over the last few months there has been a tremendous pressure by Israel and the US on the EU to do this.
I have been following this hypothesis since 2004 since I read Kenneth Timmerman’s Countdown to Crisis: The Coming Nuclear Showdown with Iran, which included the official minutes of a meeting between Quds Force officials, Ayman al Zawahiri and Imad Mugniyeh discussing the strategy which Kahlili now lays out in his article. I found it a plausible hypothesis but over the last ten years I have never been able to get support for it. Very few people actually had read the book which is a must read if you want to be informed about developments in Iran.
Kahlili has today an article about the panic in Iran about his previous articles saying there was a link to Iran. Today a car bomb attack against the French embassy in Tripoli. If Kahlili is right the next attack should be against a UK target. Even when Kahlili is not trustworthy his articles are having an impact which is why I follow this guy.
Source reveals research included high-value targets inside U.S.
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.
Nation’s media claim Washington behind WND reports
Much of Iran’s media today panicked, attacking WND reports on the Islamic regime’s involvement in the Boston Marathon bombings and claiming Washington is behind the WND reports so the U.S. can attack other countries.
. . . . . . . .
The fact that the regime’s media reflected the same report shows that panic, said the source, who added that Iranian leaders are furious about the WND reports.
Iran has denied any links to two men arrested in Canada on suspicion of planning an attack on a train.
“It is really ridiculous to link al-Qaeda to Iran. I hope that the Canadian authorities think a bit more rationally and pay attention to the consciousness of the people and world public opinion.”
Al-Qaeda – a militant Salafist Islamic movement – preaches a radical anti-Shia ideology that places it firmly at odds with Shia Iran.
And from The Long War Journal, best as a long list of all the reasons US Government is convinced Iran supports Al Qaeda:
Phi Beta Iota: The irony here is that we are totally prepared to consider genuine evidence that Iran — or Syria — or any of a host of other nations the USA has abused these past 50 years — are actually guilty of the Bostom bombs (all four of them — two did not explode). The Iranians are Persians — they have some of the most intelligent and capable engineers on the planet, man of them trained at US universities. Hence, when a government creates a foundation of lies over time, and then tries to tell the truth, the chances are much higher that they will not be believed. The truth at any cost lowers all other costs. Lies of convenience destroy the one thing that most matters in the eyes of the people: legitimacy.
