Iran: Good News, Bad News & More News
For an administration that has been more inclined to saber-rattle than talk, the news that the U.S. may meet face to face with Iran and Syria is most welcome.
Less welcome are the stories saying that the White House has been weighing air attacks on Iran even in the face of threats by General Peter Pace, head of the Joint Chief of Staff, and other Pentagon bigs that they would resign if the saber rattlers donâ€™t back off.
Meanwhile, there is further evidence that the administration was blowing smoke up our backsides when it claimed that those nasty explosively-formed penetrators (EFPs) that are showing up in roadside bombs are much too sophisticated to be made in Iraq and therefore had to come from Iran with the complicity of the highest levels of the Tehran government:
Another makeshift factory used to fabricate EFPs has been found in Iraq.
The White House really takes us to be fools, doesn’t it?
