In a sharp reversal of its longstanding accusations against Iran arming militants in Iraq , the US military has made an unprecedented albeit quiet confession: the weapons they had recently found in Iraq were not made in Iran at all.
In the past year, the US leaders have been relentless in propagating their charges of Iranian meddling and fomenting violence in Iraq and since the release of the key judgments of the US National Intelligence Estimate in December that Iran does not have a nuclear weaponisation programme, these accusations have sharply intensified.
The US charges of Iranian interference in Iraq too have now collapsed. Any threat of military strike against Iran is in violation of the UN charter and the IAEA's continued supervision on Iran's uranium enrichment facilities means there is no justification for sanctions.

Well well, what do we have here? We have the U.S. backing off, because they figured out that the world wouldn't buy the idea of just taking the word of the U.S. military and then having the military destroy the so-called evidence before any independent analysis. They have to do better next time they figure.
They'll have to steal Iranian weapons and get them into the hands of the insurgency so they can capture those weapons on dead Iraqis. Then they'll do the whole propaganda thing all over again. Only the next time, they'll point back to this time to say, "Don't you remember how honest we were when we discovered that the weapons we thought were Iranian turned out not to be?" Sure, sure, so now we're supposed to trust you next time you falsely imagine.
We're ahead of you. Your credibility is totally shot. It's over. You've lost. Give up.
