More Headlyings

As we covered in an earlier post, the US has said over and over that Iran was helping the Iraqi insurgency, but hasn't offered any proof.

Well, here's the proof ... sort of:
Gates: U.S. Has Proof Iran Helps Iraqi Insurgents
Wow! Sounds like they really got something there, eh? But look just a bit closer at the $ quote:
Offering some of the first public details of evidence the military has collected, Gates said, "I think there's some serial numbers, there may be some markings on some of the projectile fragments that we found," that point to Iran.
That's proof!? He thinks there might be serial numbers or markings!?

Boy, that's some high standards there.

This case being made regarding Iran is being based on the allegation that the new projectile being used in newer IEDs are SO PRECISE ONLY IRAN COULD HAVE PRODUCED THEM. The sheer chutzpah of a claim like this is mind-blowing.

My god, it's a round, concave piece of metal I would bet money any high schooler in metal shop could make in about two hours on a lathe.
This is so weak that they had two so-called Intelligence agents provide the narrative in a lame attempt at lending credibility to an incredible report.
