My Comment: I am skeptical of these claims. If such an attack should occur .... I have confidence that  the U.S. will find out who was responsible and the retaliation will be massive. For Iran .... there is zero cost benefit in pulling such a stunt .... even if the religious extremists conduct it for their own personal reasons.
