For the record

This has been much reported, but:
Marine Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said yesterday that he has no information indicating Iran's government is directing the supply of lethal weapons to Shiite insurgent groups in Iraq.
Of course, the Bush Administration, which is trying to convince everyone that Iran is now the enemy, had made exactly such a charge just the day before.
Asked by reporters yesterday to provide more information on the charge, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said, "The Iranians are up to their eyeballs in this activity."
So, the Administration is trying to sell a lie about a country being a threat, while the military experts say it just isn't so. Where have we heard that before?
