( - Writing for Salon Magazine, columnist Glenn Greenwald has punched gaping holes into what appears to be yet another FBI manufactured and conceived "terror" plot, this time involving the Islamic Republic of Iran.

The Terrorist Mastermind at the center of the plot is a failed used car salesman in Texas with a history of pedestrian money problems.
