More Accusations With No Evidence

Technorati Tags: , , ,

More docile media reporting of administration saber-rattling, this time from the WaPo:

Senior U.S. military officials in Iraq sought Sunday to link Iran to deadly armor-piercing explosives and other weapons that they said are being used to kill U.S. and Iraqi troops with increasing regularity.

During a long-awaited presentation, held in Baghdad's fortified Green Zone, the officials displayed mortar shells, rocket-propelled grenades and a powerful cylindrical bomb, capable of blasting through an armored Humvee, that they said were manufactured in Iran and supplied to Shiite militias in Iraq for attacks on U.S. and Iraqi troops.

"Iran is a significant contributor to attacks on coalition forces, and also supports violence against the Iraqi security forces and the Iraqi people," said a senior defense official, who was joined by a defense analyst and an explosives expert, both also from the military.

And the understatement of the week, made by Iraq's deputy foreign minister: [...] "It is difficult for us here in the diplomatic circles just to accept whatever the American forces say is evidence."

If the MSM just presents the 'news' as BushCo tells them, who is supposed to present an opposing view.

BushCo says Iran is the problem. ABC reports what BushCo says. Must be the "truth" he says snarkily. :-)
