Will Barack Obama admit extent of Iran’s role in Iraq, laid bare by WikiLeaks? Telegraph Blogs
It seems to me that the most significant revelations from the massive WikiLeaks document dump is the apparent extent of Iran’s nefarious role in Iraq. Remember how we were always being told that the Bush administration was exaggerating the extent of Iranian influence with the Shia militia groups in order to push along a neocon plot to attack Iran? Well, an initial reading of the documents conducted by the New York Times indicates there wasn’t much exaggeration at all.
Come to think of it, None other than Vice President Joe Biden said as recently as August:
Iranian influence in Iraq is minimal. It’s been greatly exaggerated.
