Administration claims that Iran has been supplying arms to Iraq's Sunni insurgency have never made any sense. Coming soon after Washington initially accused Tehran of arming Shi'ite militias, they have seemed like a weak attempt to remake its case tying the country to attacks on U.S. troops in Iraq — the vast majority of which are carried out by Sunni, not Shi'a, forces.So far, the only evidence that Iran is in fact deliberately passing EFP's to Iraqis is "detainee evidence" tortured out of prisoners by interrogators who are asking leading questions based entirely on the say-so of the utterly-nutterly MeK. A far more likely scenario is that Hizboullah - who got the technology from the Irish Republican Army rather than Iran - have been passing on their knowledge and helping Iraqis make their own EFP's without any kind of incitement from the Iranian leadership. US military leaders know this, but they are yet again nodding in time to the administration's war beat.
