Federal investigators in Germany have unearthed new evidence linking Iran to the 1985 bombing of a US military base that injured 35 people, a report said on Saturday.
Iranian secret agents had allegedly detonated explosives concealed in a vehicle at the Frankfurt post-exchange food store on November 24, 1985, said the report in Focus news magazine.
Focus said investigators believe the agents were members of a hit squad working on orders from Teheran to eliminate dissidents living in Europe in exile.
The hit squad was also responsible for the deaths of two dissidents, one in Hamburg in 1987 and another in Bonn in 1992, the magazine said, citing sources within the German federal prosecutor's office.
Investigators were quoted as saying the "credible new evidence" comes from a former Iranian secret service official.
The federal prosecutor's office declined comment on the report.
I thought there was no terrorism before January 18th 2001?
Green light the decapitation strike and inform the Mossad that playtime has finally arrived.
"Sounds like casus belli to me.

Sounds good to me. I've like all the (three or four) Iranians I've met, but I'm really not too fond of their government. Haven't been since about 1979 or so.
Otherwise it will be seen as weakness by the mullahs in the middle east, and proof that the U.S. is weak.
