Frankly does anyone believe anything the U.S says ? I don't for sure...
Look at this piece from the New York Times, dated 16th February 2010.
Gen. Ray Odierno, the senior American commander in Iraq, said Tuesday that two influential Iraqi politicians now involved in blocking candidates in the parliamentary election next month had close links to Iran, which the general said was trying to undermine the vote.
General Odierno was unusually blunt in publicly expressing concerns about the actions of the two Iraqis: Ahmed Chalabi, who was a confidant of Bush administration officials in the prelude to the 2003 invasion but now is perceived as having supplied false intelligence to the United States; and Ali Faisal al-Lami, suspected of involvement in murderous activities of Shiite militants, including a bombing in Baghdad, accusations that he denies.
The two Iraqi politicians “clearly are influenced by Iran,” General Odierno said. “We have direct intelligence that tells us that.” He said the two men had several meetings in Iran, including sessions with an Iranian who is on the United States terrorist watch list. General Odierno spoke during a forum in Washington sponsored by the Institute for the Study of War, a policy research center.
Hard-line Shiite leaders in Iran are seeking to influence the outcome of Iraq’s national election, he said, through public and covert action — investments and other financial assistance to influence voters, as well as its continued support to violent groups within Iraq.
Mr. Lami, a close aide to Mr. Chalabi, is in charge of a panel that has disqualified several hundred candidates who had planned to run in the March 7 election on the grounds that they had promoted the Baath Party. Hardest hit have been Sunni candidates, and the action has raised fears that Sunnis are being marginalized by Iraq’s Shiites. "
Excuse me , I don't wish to wake, General Odierno, up -- but what has been doing for the past 7 years, apart from snoring ?!
Come on, which fool will believe this utter American bullshit. OK, overall, people are dumb but not that dumb...
Give us a break will you !
Here is the dead A.Hakeem with G.Bush and now replaced by his son Ammar Al-Hakeem...Chalabi and Al-Lami are part of the Hakeem, Muqtada Al-Sadr bloc --the Iraqi National Alliance...
On a side note, now that Chalabi is clearly an Iranian agent, it will not surprise me if the other set of clowns - the anti war idiots, hail him as anti-imperialist hero...
I mean frankly, General Odierno, you've been supposedly fighting "terrorists" in Iraq for the past 7 years and you did not know that these people who shook hands with your government were from Iran and were the real terrorists ?
This is becoming so ludicrous...so laughable...I would hate to represent the USA in any way shape or form...people will take me for a clown...a murderous clown , but a clown nonetheless..
Come on folks, you really have ZERO credibility left.
Tell you what, how about you all abdicate and join a travelling circus...you travel far anyways, it's not like it will take much effort from you....recycle yourselves in a new career ...and I already guarantee you that the whole world will laugh at you ...oh but wait, it is already happening...
