ABC News Exclusive: The Secret War Against Iran
A Pakistani tribal militant group responsible for a series of deadly guerrilla raids inside Iran has been secretly encouraged and advised by American officials since 2005, U.S. and Pakistani intelligence sources tell ABC News.
…A CIA spokesperson said “the account of alleged CIA action is false” and reiterated that the U.S. provides no funding of the Jundullah group.
Pakistani government sources say the secret campaign against Iran by Jundullah was on the agenda when Vice President Dick Cheney met with Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf in February.
A senior U.S. government official said groups such as Jundullah have been helpful in tracking al Qaeda figures and that it was appropriate for the U.S. to deal with such groups in that context.
Some former CIA officers say the arrangement is reminiscent of how the U.S. government used proxy armies, funded by other countries including Saudi Arabia, to destabilize the government of Nicaragua in the 1980s.

The ‘secret campaign against Iran’? (The ‘by Jundullah’ is almost an afterthought.) Talk about timing! Whose side is ABC on? Couldn’t this wait until, like, maybe it was confirmed/authenticated? And, while we’re at it, let’s just wave the ‘destabilize the regime’ flag with all it’s implications, vice emphasize the fact that they’ve got gobs of these wahoos looking for al-Qaeda types and we all know it. What’s new here?
And damn! If I was the parents of one of those fifteen British troops, I sure wouldn’t be thinking “thanks for letting us know” right about now. Put another unconfirmed ‘intelligence sources tell ABC News‘ log on the Iranian fire, why doncha?

    More treason that will go unpunished.

  2. “This just in. ABC News has learned that the Allied military command, in contrast to the fake landings in Calais by a proxy army led by “General” Patton, have actually planned to land in Normandy tomorrow morning. We take you now to our reporter on the scene of the secret campaign preparations. Wolf?”

    Nailed that one perfectly, Ken.
