Iran has created a committee with a $20 million budget to counter American 'plots', CNN reported Sunday. According to the report, the committee members will be from the ministries of information, interior and foreign affairs. CNN attributed Iranian state-media FARS with the account. The report quoted Fatemeh Alia, head of the Human Rights Commission of the Parliamentary National Security Committee, as saying that "the $20-million budget is not enough and many representatives in the parliament are supporting increasing this budget to $50 million." Specifics as to the 'plots' in question were not made, nor were details on the committee's operations or how the budget would be spent.
