    This past Sunday, this story appeared in newspapers across the USA.

    Iraq: No Evidence Iran Is Arming Shiites

    (AP) A top Iraqi official said Sunday there was no "conclusive" evidence that Shiite extremists have been directly supplied with some Iranian arms as alleged by the United States.

    Government spokesman Ali al-Dabbagh said Iraq does not want trouble with any country, "especially Iran."

    Al-Dabbagh was commenting on talks this week in Tehran between an Iraqi delegation and Iranian authorities aimed at halting suspected Iranian aid to some Shiite militias.

    Asked about reports that some rockets made in 2007 or 2008 and seized in raids against militias were directly supplied by Iran, al-Dabbagh replied: "There is no conclusive evidence."

    Al-Dabbagh said Iraq wants friendly ties with Iran and stressed both countries share common interests.

    "We can't ignore or deny we are neighbors. We do not want to be pushed in a struggle with any country, especially Iran," he told a news conference.

    "We are fed up with past tensions that we have paid a costly price for because some parties have pushed Iraq (in the past) to take an aggressive attitude to Iran."

    Then, all of a sudden a new story was in today's newspapers where Al-Dabbagh says he was misinterpreted and that there definitely are weapons being discovered that were made and furnished by Iran.

    Wow, a quick turnaround. Kind of like when the mob gets ahold of a witness and then the next day he says that people misinterpreted what he said.

    What did the US tell this guy would happen to him if he didn't change his story, ship his ass off to Israel for conversion?

    This is really uinfrickin believable. What the hell in his original story could be misinterpreted? Seem,s pretty straightforward to me.

    Or Egypt for a little dance we like to call "Secret rendition"...

    Anyhow, who's surprised by this? We see the same Bush Leaguers here on our very own message board state that Iran is "killing our soldiers" time and time again.

    Every time you dig deeper into neocon views and claims (and those who sympathize with them), no matter how convincing they seem, you turn up worms.
