There was something interesting missing from Maj. Gen. Kevin Bergner’s introductory remarks to journalists at his regular news briefing in Baghdad on Wednesday: the word “Iran,” or any form of it. It was especially striking as Bergner, the U.S. military spokesman here, announced the extraordinary list of weapons and munitions that have been uncovered in recent weeks since fighting erupted between Iraqi and U.S. security forces and Shiite militiamen.I think the people that bashed Move On for the Petraeus/Betray Us ad need to apologize. The best apology would be a rock-solid contribution to their cause. Other than that, I'm completely not surprised to the mendacity of the in-the-Republican-pocket military or that the pathetic war-mongering from the gutless cowards who run this country tried to start another war.
….A plan to show some alleged Iranian-supplied explosives to journalists last week in Karbala and then destroy them was canceled after the United States realized none of them was from Iran. A U.S. military spokesman attributed the confusion to a misunderstanding that emerged after an Iraqi Army general in Karbala erroneously reported the items were of Iranian origin.
When U.S. explosives experts went to investigate, they discovered they were not Iranian after all.
These people are so off the deep end that everything they say needs to be triple-checked by indepent journalists. Which, of course, completely excludes 90%, including virtually 100% of TV journalists and all of Faux News.
