Flashback: Reports Confirm Iran Armed Iraqi Insurgency

Iran has had its fingerprints all over Iraq for years.

In February 2007 the United States military released photographic evidence supporting Administration claims that Iran was providing material assistance and training to the insurgents in Iraq.

The Washington Times reported:

The largest unauthorized disclosure of classified government documents in U.S. history confirms a long-standing assertion of President George W. Bush at the start of the 2007 troop surge: Iran was orchestrating one side of the Iraqi insurgency.

Field reports made public by the website WikiLeaks on Friday show that U.S. military intelligence agencies had many strands of evidence revealing that Iran provided paramilitary training to Shiite Muslim insurgents at the height of the civil war in Iraq.

In one case, the military circulated a Dec. 22, 2006, warning that a group known as Jaish al-Mahdi planned to kidnap U.S. soldiers. The man planning the operation, Sheik Azhar al-Dulaimi, was trained by Hezbollah terrorists near the Iranian city of Qom, the document stated. Hezbollah is a Lebanon-based militia that was founded, trained and funded by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps.

“This confirms the degree of operational involvement the Iranian Revolutionary Guard used in anti-U.S. operations in Iraq,” said Kenneth Katzman, a Gulf affairs specialist at the Congressional Research Service. “It confirms the degree to which Iran was involved in operations that directly targeted U.S. forces.”

 

……There is also evidence that the Iranian regime is providing assistance to terrorists in Afghanistan, too.

 

Under Obama’s watch, weapons that were meant for the Iraqi army fell into the hands of Shiite militias. In 2008, Iranian Hezbollah brigades were captured in Iraq and the regime in Tehran has been paying insurgents to kill Americans and Brits.

Barky also tipped off the Iranians when Israel planned on taking out Soleimani in 2015.

The latest surgical strike against an Iranian terrorist leader in Baghdad was justified and should have happened a long time ago.

  1. Michael Moore apologizes to the terrorists for our behavior. Who publishes his comments anyway? Who thinks airing his opinions is news? Why give that despicable shit sack any recognition at all? Where does he get off thinking he represents America? He may be a spokesperson for self important windbags and bottom feeders but he does NOT represent me nor any other REAL American. This fat puffed up toad doesn’t seem to understand that this country is where he was able to become semi-successful, not Iran or Iraq. Move to Iran Michael, you’re no American. Become a mullah. They seem to be full of hot air and bullshit like you.The ragheads are going to need replacements in the near future. A pompous,fat, blustering asshole like you would make a good one.
