evidence? edit

As I have read the 'evidence' is diputed. Before publishing this story I advice contributor to carfully be aware of u.s. spin and keep article NPOV. international 18:00, 12 February 2007 (UTC)Reply

If anything the underlying text is pushed toward NPOV, it is in over-defending Iran. To whit:
  • It is unconventional to give the accused reaction before clearly laying out the case being presented by the accuser.
  • As it stands the article is technically incorrect, since a major Al-Qaeda training camp was found in iraq after the allies invaded. Not to mention the meeting with Atta is a fact; piecing together the whole context of the meeting is difficult, since Atta killed himself when he killed the other 3000 people on 9/11.
  • Deletion of the Senor material was strange, since Senor is probably the single best western authority to say anything about this whole matter. Look at how much time he has spent in the middle east in the last four years and compare that to any of the other western reporters involved here. Anlace 03:39, 13 February 2007 (UTC)Reply
We saw what happened (and is still happening) when no one was willing to "over-defend" Iraq: civil war. And this one risks a world war because the middle east is as unstable as it can get now... So, the question is: are journalists responsible for pointing out tendencies to avoid catastrophs? I'd say yes. Anlace seems to forget that US invaded Iraq with claims of wmd, which was found to be a lie. From that time on, neither the administration nor its foreign policies changed at all...

And after posting this comment, I'm now afraid for my security... does that say anything about US policies? Towsonu2003 07:23, 13 February 2007 (UTC)Reply
Na, just remember, if they really want to get you, there's nothing you can do.

What a difference a day makes: U.S. general: No evidence Iran is arming Iraqis. The hot air blows both ways. -Edbrown05 05:00, 14 February 2007 (UTC)Reply
