General Patraeus has evidence that Iran was behind the attack on the Green Zone in Baghdad on Sunday. No suprise here. Iran has been meddling with insurgent activities for quite a while now. This is just another piece to the pie. The UN will sit back and do nothing, of course. 15 civilians died in the attack.
The most senior US general in Iraq has said he has evidence that Iran was behind Sunday’s bombardment of Baghdad’s heavily fortified Green Zone.
Gen David Petraeus told the BBC he thought Tehran had trained, equipped and funded insurgents who fired the barrage of mortars and rockets.
He said Iran was adding what he described as “lethal accelerants” to a very combustible mix.
There has as yet been no response from Iran to the accusations.
