Anatomy of a Headlying

Army officers say Iran made bomb components
Wow! That's an excuse for Bush to go to war!
But a closer look at the article shows:
Officers said they did not know where the copper plates were manufactured, or by whom. They also said they could not prove who supplied the materials or who was building the EFPs.
"I don't think there's any way for us to know if it's tied to any government," said Maj. Jeremy Siegrist, the executive officer for the unit that recovered the materials. "That's a stretch too far."
Weber said cutting, stamping and milling the copper plates requires technical expertise, as does arming and triggering the EFPs. He said Iran has the necessary expertise.
I'll add to the good Major's comments about who has the 'necessary expertise:'
Saudia Arabia.
And anyone else who has passed shop class and has access to a junkyard.
