Sen. Joe Lieberman dropped a bomb today at the Senate Iraq hearings: Iranian special forces are training rebels in southern Iraq. This information was confirmed by Gen. Petraeus. This confirms the warnings and concerns of everyone who opposed our invasion of Iraq five years ago. These experts predicted such disastrous consequences if Bush invaded Iraq. Once again those predictions of terrible consequences are being met.
Petraeus also warned today that a precipitous U.S. withdrawal would mean Iran "would fill the vacuum." That, of course, has already happened because of the lack of decent security or functioning governmental entities in Iraq. Bush's people have again confirmed the disastrous policy consequences of their failed policies. Of course no one is advocating a "precipitous withdrawal" from Iraq. The repetition of this term seems designed to scare American voters by General Petraeus and Ambassador Crocker.
