Hey! They FINALLY FOUND That Evidence!...







Sometimes I feel like Frank Drebbin (the “Police Squad” series detective, played by funnyman Leslie Neilsen), as in, “Hey Frank, here’s that evidence on the Scrapaccio case! It turns out he really was guilty after all! I’d have felt a lot better if we’d had all this BEFORE they sent him to the chair.”

Same thing here; a few months back (OK, maybe eight months back...the end of last summer), I’d posted in a comments section somewhere that “Iran was directly funding the killing of coalition troops,” and I was called for “pulling that out of...either thin air...or my anus, I can’t exactly recall which.”

I couldn’t exactly give the source for that information back then, but NOW, it’s been documented by a Left-wing British newspaper no less!

The story in the Telegraph states, in part, “Iran has secretly paid Iraqi insurgents hundreds of thousands of American dollars to kill British soldiers, according to a leaked government document obtained by The Telegraph.”

“The allegations are contained in a confidential "field report" written by a British officer who served in Basra during one of the most dangerous periods of the conflict. The report, which has never been made public, shows the full level of Iran's involvement in the insurgency for the first time.

“The document states that the Jaish al-Mahdi (JAM) – also known as the Mahdi Army – one of the most violent insurgent groups operating in Basra, used money from Iran to recruit and pay young unemployed men up to $300 (£150) a month to carry out attacks against the British. The findings have been passed to the highest levels in the military.”

At any rate, I’m really glad they found that evidence after all and that Iran/Scarpacci really was guilty...I really had my doubts for a while....(OK, not really).

Yeah but you don't think the mainstream Press will make an issue out of it, do you?

No, sadly I don't. Just as they haven't made much out of the incredible progress the Iraqi Army has made. They are very close to being able to protect their own country and stand on their own...so I guess that translates loosely into "Nothing to see hear" to America's MSM.
