The guardian in the UK is reporting that there is an internal investigation in the US into whether the iranian government fed the hawks in washington false information about Iraq's weapons programme in order to get a dangerous neighbour removed.
In the interests of balance I should point out that the Guardian is a left leaning paper which was fairly anti the war. However they are a well respected broadsheet, and not one of the untrustworthy UK tabloid papers.

They probably did feed the US false information. But the penta'gun' didn't need much encouragement. Besides, it's no excuse. The Commies pulled countless maskirovkas during the Cold war, and before them Britan's Operation Double Cross during the war demonstrated the technique. The US should know better than to fall for such a cheap trick.
