Remember (as recent as last week) the administration's attempts to conflate Iran with Al-Queda? Someone forgot to tell them that they were co-operating:

CAIRO, Egypt - The leader of an al-Qaida umbrella group in Iraq threatened to wage war against Iran unless it stops supporting Shiites in Iraq within two months, according to an audiotape released Sunday.

Abu Omar al-Baghdadi, who leads the group Islamic State in Iraq, said his Sunni fighters have been preparing for four years to wage a battle against Shiite-dominated Iran.

“We are giving the Persians, and especially the rulers of Iran, a two month period to end all kinds of support for the Iraqi Shiite government.


Long ago, I made the point that Al-Queda is a strictly Sunni group, whereas Iran is fundementalist Shia.

We really would be better off if we at least talked wtih Iran.
