Sorry LA Times… US Has Proof Iran Is Interfering in Iraq

This could be very embarassing news for the Los Angeles Times since they just claimed in a detailed report on Monday, January 23, 2007 that there is limited evidence of Iranian involvement in Iraq’s troubles:

Scant evidence found of Iran-Iraq arms link

But, that is not what the Administration is saying!
On Wednesday the US announced it had proof that Iran is meddling in Iraq. The Administration will publish details soon to support these claims.
Iran Mania has this report by the AFP:

The United States said it had proof of Iran’s interference in Iraq, promising soon to publish details of Iranian networks in its strife-torn neighboring country.

“There is solid evidence that Iranian agents are involved in these networks and that they are working with individuals and groups in Iraq and that they are being sent there by the Iranian government,” said State Department spokesman Sean McCormack.

“And I would expect that … in the near future, we are going to try to talk a little bit more in public — to the extent that we can because, again, you’re dealing with intelligence information — about what we know of Iranian support for these networks,” he added.

The United States, which accuses Iran of funding and equipping Shiite militias in Iraq, arrested five Iranians at an office in the northern Iraqi city of Arbil on January 11, accusing them of being agents for Tehran, arming militias and inciting anti-US attacks in Iraq.

The arrests triggered a diplomatic row, with Tehran accusing US forces in Iraq of violating international diplomatic regulations, but Washington and the US military in Iraq maintain that those arrested had no diplomatic status.

“One thing we can tell you is they’re not diplomats,” he said, adding that the detainees were “still in the custody of multinational forces.”

The United States has repeatedly accused Iran of supporting the insurgents.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the LA Times to make a correction!
