"At school in Baton Rouge, La., he recalled being easily distracted by New Orleans, and going to clubs on Bourbon Street. “I was a party boy,” he told Dr. Saathoff...F.B.I. agents also told Dr. Saathoff that in their dealings with Mr. Arbabsiar, they had portrayed one agent as being President Obama’s “right-hand man.”“ ‘That impressed him. He wants to be important,’ ” Dr. Saathoff quoted the agent as saying about Mr. Arbabsiar. Mr. Arbabsiar’s suggestion that his case might be resolved through a deal appears to have grown out of his view that because no one had been hurt or killed in the plot, such a resolution might be acceptable. He said that if he had killed someone, he should go to prison. “But nothing happened,” he is quoted as saying, “so I think that there is a chance to make a deal that works for both of us." How could you after this doubt this story of the sinister plot?
