An Almost Good NYT Piece on Iran EFP's & Militia Contacts

There is a long NYT article this morning that discusses Iran's extensive involvement in supporting Iraqi Shia militias with training and, in particular, EFP's. The article carefully and thoroughly tracks the dawning realization among U.S. officials that Iran was directly involved in the violence in Iraq through the IRGC, the Quds Force, and through Hezbollah.

I call the article almost good because, while informative and without spin through much of the article, it falls into traditional Democratic bias at the end, finishing with the ludicrous suggestion that we could get Iran to stop their bellicose and murderous ways if only we would sit down and talk to the mad mullahs. One can almost hear the DNC singing Kumbaya punctuated with the sounds of EFP's in the background. See here and here.
