The Blotter is breathlessly reporting that Iran is arming the Taliban:
NATO officials say they have caught Iran red-handed, shipping heavy arms, C4 explosives and advanced roadside bombs to the Taliban for use against NATO forces, in what the officials say is a dramatic escalation of Iran’s proxy war against the United States and Great Britain.
What seems to be happening is that Cheney and those close to him are trying to build a case for war against Iran, which is why they are so critical of Rice’s recent attempts to reach out diplomatically to Tehran. If they can make (i.e., fabricate) the case that Iran is waging proxy war against the U.S. through al Qaeda and the Taliban, among others, then they can push for what would appear to be retaliatory war against a “proven” enemy. (Plus, Iran may soon have those WMDs.)
Impeach Cheney. Impeach him now.
