President Barack Obama doesn't seem to be putting up with much reckless behavior these days. Starting from a 'do-nothing-congress' to the alleged Iranian plot against the Saudi ambassador to the United States, President Obama recognizes the action of both guilty parties as patterns of "dangerous and reckless behavior" that he will not tolerate. President Obama "will not accept no as the answer" to his jobs bill, nor will he accept the Iranians to deploy a plot against a foreign diplomat to the United States. He says that diplomats to the United States are protected and anyone charged with attempting to harm or advertently harms a diplomat will pay a price.
With this said, President Obama called the alleged plot a sign of how Iran has "been outside of accepted norms of international behavior for far too long."
The plot to assassinate the ambassador to the United States from Saudio Arabia was stopped, but what is also known is that an individual of Iranian-American descent was involved in a plot to assassinate the ambassador had direct links, and was paid by and directed by individuals in the Iranian government. These facts are available for all to see. Stern sanctions agains Iran are expected.
