Oh boy. Can you say Gulf of Tonkin? I have no idea if this is going to be the pretext for war with Iran but I’m sure it’s at least going into the Bush administration’s “permanent record” on Iran, perhaps to be dusted off later in a pretext emergency.
Yes, we’re in Bush’s final quarter but that’s still two years.
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- The Pentagon is investigating whether a recent attack on a military compound in Karbala was carried out by Iranians or Iranian-trained operatives, two officials from separate U.S. government agencies said.
"People are looking at it seriously," one of the officials said.
That official added the Iranian connection was a leading theory in the investigation into the January 20 attack that killed five soldiers.
The second official said: "We believe it's possible the executors of the attack were Iranian or Iranian-trained."
