This LA Times report is saying that the Bush adminisration is not ready to release information about Iran invovlement in Iraq. As previously reported there was going to be information released today that would 'clearly' implicate Iran as a source for weapons and explosives to Iraq. There seems to be some discrepancy among various 'players' how valid the intelligence information actually is.
But some officials in Washington are concerned that some of the material may be inconclusive and that other data cannot be released without jeopardizing intelligence sources and methods. They want to avoid repeating the embarrassment that followed the March 2003 invasion of Iraq, when it became clear that information the administration cited to justify the war was incorrect, said the officials, who described the internal discussions on condition of anonymity.

"We don't want a repeat of the situation we had when [then-Secretary of State] Colin L. Powell went before the United Nations," said one U.S. official, referring to Powell's 2003 presentation on then-Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's unconventional weapons program that relied on evidence later found to be false. "People are going to be skeptical."

The Bush administration has charged repeatedly that Iranian agents and military personnel have been bringing in explosives and other weaponry for use in Iraq by Shiite Muslim militants. U.S. intelligence and military officials have said they have substantial evidence of Iranian involvement, but have not made it public.

Where does one begin? How gullible is the American public? Don't answer that. They are trying to fabricate a case again , this time for Iran. It was floated out that Iran may have been involved in the incident in Karbala. Were they? Well maybe but there is no convincing evidence at present. But it's out there. Kind of like Iraq and 9/11. Whether they were actually involved is not important the perception has been shaped.
So now the mind games begin. Bush & Co. are determined to get into Iran. Let the spinning begin. Didn't someone say "What a tangled web we weave." There is certainly good reason to be skeptical about anything this administration says. We the people have been lied to since day 1. This wolf cry is no longer effective or acceptable. I can't think of anything this governemnt can say that I would believe. It's time for a change. If this administration hadn't taken us to war in the first place none of these things would be issues today. Please for the good of the nation George and Dick step down. Do the right thing.
