ABC News’ latest exclusive reveals information so painfully obvious (I hope) that it’s almost silly:

U.S. officials say they have found smoking-gun evidence of Iranian support for terrorists in Iraq: brand-new weapons fresh from Iranian factories. According to a senior defense official, coalition forces have recently seized Iranian-made weapons and munitions that bear manufacturing dates in 2006.

This suggests, say the sources, that the material is going directly from Iranian factories to Shia militias, rather than taking a roundabout path through the black market. “There is no way this could be done without (Iranian) government approval,” says a senior official.

Iranian-made munitions found in Iraq include advanced IEDs designed to pierce armor and anti-tank weapons. U.S. intelligence believes the weapons have been supplied to Iraq’s growing Shia militias from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, which is also believed to be training Iraqi militia fighters in Iran.

Evidence is mounting, too, that the most powerful militia in Iraq, Moktada al-Sadr’s Mahdi army, is receiving training support from the Iranian-backed terrorists of Hezbollah.

    I don’t doubt we sold the weapons to Iran thanks to Ronald Reagan and dillweeds like Oliver North, and as far as you know, we may be selling them still, so just who is the terrorist here?

    Advanced design IEDs ? shaped charges have been around for 50+ years. The last information that i saw showed only that the USA had found the sheet metal shaped funnels into which explosives could be placed. What links do you have that show more than this concerning the newer IEDs?
