Whether or not Iran’s leadership knew about the alleged plot to
assassinate a Saudi ambassador in Washington, they should be held
accountable in any event, President Obama insisted on Thursday.
Skeptical backlash from Iran experts on the US government’s official
narrative of the plot has led Obama to justify punishing Iran, even if
the doubters are right and the Iranian government had no knowledge of
it. ”Even if at the highest levels there was not detailed operational
knowledge, there has to be accountability with respect to anybody in the
Iranian government engaging in this kind of activity,” he said.
