The fact that someone was able to bypass Georgian security and plant a bomb under an officials car, worries me ......
That's some serious damage to the image of the Interior Minister.
I assume there is a working cell in Georgia. But actually people from abroad are beeing watched constantly, especially from troublesome regions. Maybe they bribed some people, what again is very image damaging.
My only conclusion is that the MIA was too busy beating up citizens and spying on them ....

A week after the terror attack in New Delhi, which seriously wounded Tal Yehoshua-Koren, the wife of an Israeli diplomat, the Indian government is still trying to brush over the accumulating evidence that the attack was part of a wider Iranian effort to orchestrate multiple attacks on Israeli targets in different countries. To date, no Indian official has referred to Iran's involvement. Sources in New Delhi explain that the government is concerned that its close relationships with both Israel and Iran are becoming incompatible.
The investigation into the attack is being carried out by the New Delhi Police and the Central Bureau of Investigation, but not by the elite National Security Guard which has the main expertise in investigating bombings. Security sources cited "political and diplomatic reasons" for the government's preference to treat this as a local matter and not an international one. Police sources even leaked to the media that the bomber could have been a local Indian, despite there being little proof for this. Urban Development Minister Kamal Nath insisted that the attack was "an isolated incident."
Members of the ruling Congress Party tried in media appearances to implicate agents of India's rival neighbor, Pakistan, in the attack, claiming that Pakistan was trying to harm India's relations with Iran.
Saikat Datta, a senior defense analyst in New Delhi says that "this is about the relations India shares with Israel and Iran. Our oil comes from Iran and they have always supported us on the Kashmir issue. But Israel is our strongest and staunchest strategic ally and there is a lot of good will towards the Israelis."
'Iranian terror cell in Bangkok hid bombs in radios'
By JPOST.COM STAFF
ABC News: Bangkok bomber was photographed holding portable radios found to contain ball bearings, magnets.
The Iranian nationals who were discovered plotting a terror attack in Bangkok last week used portable radios to hide at least five bombs that they intended to use against Israeli targets in the city, ABC News reported on Tuesday.
A surveillance photo appears to show one of the Iranians in custody, Saeid Moradi, carrying two portable radios. According to ABC, the radios were packed with ball bearings and magnets, indicating that they were designed to be stuck to the side of a vehicle. Similar devices were used in terror plots against Israeli interests in New Delhi and Georgia prior to the uncovering of the Bangkok plot.
The Bangkok Post reported on Monday that police believe that a number of stickers bearing the word "Sejeal" found posted along a road in Bangkok may have been used by the Iranian men arrested in the plot last week to mark potential targets and escape routes.
The stickers were found posted at 52 locations along a road which leads to the Israeli embassy in Bangkok and is frequented by Israeli officials. Similar stickers were found at the house where the blast occurred last week. The stickers were also discovered at another house linked to the suspects and under the seat of a motorcycle believed to be the property of one of the suspects.
The Bangkok Post added that Thai police were planning to seek an arrest warrant for a sixth suspect believed to be involved in the terror plot. An official said that the suspect is believed to have left Thailand for Iran already. Moradi and two other suspects are in custody, while two additional suspects remain at large and are believed to have escaped to Iran.
Iran says it's ready to cooperate on Thailand bombing
By JPOST.COM STAFF
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast "expresses Iran's readiness" to identify culprits of Bangkok bombings, blames "US and Zionist officials" for accusing Iran.
Mehmanparast "expressed Iran’s readiness to cooperate in identifying the culprits behind Thailand explosions and to introduce them to the international community," according to IRNA.
Mehmanparast denied any Iranian involvement in the bombings, blaming "US and Zionist officials" for "fabricating" such claims.
Thailand is seeking a fifth Iranian as a suspect in the bomb plot allegedly targeting Israeli diplomats and issued an arrest warrant for the man, police in Bangkok said Monday.
The suspect, 57-year-old Norouzi Shaya Ali Alkbar, stands accused of possessing and making explosives, AFP quoted Thai Deputy Police Chief Pansiri Prapawat as saying. He was reportedly captured on security cameras leaving a house rented by other bomb suspects prior to an explosion that exposed the plot.
Israel only need to contain themselves - do not be triggered into an escalation as this is an open attempt to draw Israel into retaliation. Israel must better their embassy security around those nations as this clearly happens in countries who are either new to the scene or countries with a questionable reputation.
Tehran says it has 'good relations with neighbors.' Denies connection to Iran-linked terrorists detained in Azarbaijan
Iran's Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said some countries are trying to undermine Tehran's "friendly relations with its neighbors through baseless allegations," IRNA reported on Thursday.
State broadcaster AzTV, quoting the national security ministry, said police had detained 20 people linked to Iranian intelligence services and Hezbollah who intended to stage attacks on foreign citizens in the country.
Iran is doing what I would expect. Deny everything, and accuse the US and Zionists of everything. Very predictable. If anything ever goes wrong, just blame the Jews and Americans (and infidels too). It's pretty tiring for me to keep reading this same old story again and again.
