"Bush's stooge" and top U.S. general in Iraq, Gen. David Petraeus talked to CNN's Jim Clancy earlier today and detailed the catalog of weapons that Iran is providing to forces fighting U.S. troops--that's Sunni and Shi'ite militias and the insurgents, not the Democrat Congressional leadership.
From CNN:Iran is serving as the LL Bean of Iraqi militia armaments; supplying the instruments of death for use against U.S. troops.
...Petraeus added, there was "no question" that Iranian arms were ending up in the hands of the Iraqi militias and there was "no debate" that six Iranians detained by the U.S. military in northern Iraq are Iranian Quds force members, the Iranian unit accused by the United States of training and arming insurgents.
"There's no question, absolutely no question that Iran is providing advanced RPGs [rocket-propelled grenades], RPG 29s," Petraeus said.The "Bush's stooge" label hung on Petraeus that was mentioned earlier? Credit Bill Maher, the Left's most lovable loser.
"It has provided some shoulder-fired, Stinger-like air-defense missiles. It has provided the explosively formed projectiles and it has provided 244 mm rockets, in addition to mortars, mortar rounds and other small-arms ammunition."
Additional reaction is provided by The Prairie Pundit:
The Iranian weapons issue gives a good example of how Iran lies. The proof that the weapons are Iranian is irrefutable. The weapons still have the Iranian manufacturing labels on them. Yet Iran still claims to not be responsible for them. Then there are the Iranian officers who have been captured who are responsible for bringing in the weapons, that Iran also denies. The fact is that Iran's word is no good when it comes to weapons smuggling and assistance to terrorism. This is why any negotiated agreement with Iran would be of little value.Iran lies? Sounds a little like the Code Pink's favorite stooge, Bill Maher.
