^^^^^So, either that is pretty old or the CIA has an incredibly good crystal ball.
Complicated, isn't it? Did you read the link to the other article?

Try this one: Iranian Involvement in Afghanistan

And here:
ABC News: Bin Laden's deputy says Iran trying to undermine al-Qaida

There are LOTS of conflicting bits coming from that area. Almost as if the people of the area are tribally oriented rather than nationally oriented.

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

Except the fact that McCain no matter how drunk, demented, and angry can not launch the Nukes out of the blue. There are a number of checks and balances in place.

There are plenty of fantastic reasons to not vote for any of the candidates - they all are pretty piss poor.

Oh here we go again our so called great "leaders" still have their heads wayee up their own ass so far that the only thing they can smell is their own shit (and man do they think it smells great)....

They certainly can not see the real world from that position cause all of the advisors they have only tell em just what they want them to hear and they certainly never will see it for themselves since they are so wrapped up in their own shit trying to look great...........has anyone noticed they still have not found Sadam's WMDs? Hmmmmmmm I wonder..... now why go after Iran? maybe the weapons of mass destrutions are hidden there eh? well you'll never know till you invade em will ya?

The only Weapon of Mass Destrution found so far happens to be bush and his cronies and if they continue on the path they are now on it will implode.....

Mofaz: Iran could go nuclear in a year

Mofaz: Iran could go nuclear in a year

Iran has taken command of its nuclear technology and could have an atomic bomb in a year, Transportation Minister Shaul Mofaz was quoted as saying Wednesday, citing Israeli intelligence.

According to Channel 10, Mofaz made the comments during talks with US officials in Washington where he leading an Israeli delegation holding meetings within the framework of the Israel-US Strategic Dialogue.

In the past, the general consensus in the intelligence community has been that Iran had hit some technical difficulties with enrichment and that its attainment of nuclear capability was much further off.

Late Sunday night, as Mofaz headed to Washington, he said that Iran must be prevented from attaining nuclear weapons and that all the options were on the table in order to stop that from happening.

"Teheran leads the axis of evil, poses a threat to the entire world, is up to its neck in the Middle East and is even trying to get a foothold in the West Bank," he said.

Meanwhile, as a second US aircraft carrier steamed into the Persian Gulf, CBS reported Tuesday that the Pentagon had ordered military commanders to develop new options for attacking Iran.

According to the report, the planning was being driven by what one officer called the "increasingly hostile role" Iran is playing in Iraq - smuggling weapons into Iraq for use against American troops.

Targets would include everything from the plants where weapons are made to the headquarters of the organization known as the Quds Force which directs operations in Iraq, CBS reported.

Our Congress finds enough time to pass resolutions to celebrate and honor Israel's 60th anniversary (H. Con. Resolution 322 and S. Res. 522) but does not have the time to look into what ails OUR country because of our support for Israel. I have NEVER heard of a resolution by these people to deal with the ME in a fair manner, that's just impossible as far as they are concerned and then they ask themselves why them rag heads hate us? Yeah, they hate our freedoms and our way of life, that's it, that's got to be it.

I'm with you on that. Stupid f-ing resolutions. Wonder how much they cost the suckers ... er ... taxpayers?
