BAGHDAD – The top U.S. military commander in Iraq on Tuesday accused Iran of continuing to support and train militants who are carrying out attacks, including most of the ones in Baghdad.

Gen. Ray Odierno said the attacks have fallen in number but are still a problem. He made the comments just after the U.S. relinquished security for Baghdad and other urban areas to Iraqi forces, part of a security agreement that will see all American soldiers out of the country by the end of 2011.

"Iran is still supporting, funding and training surrogates who operate inside of Iraq. They have not stopped and I don't think they will stop," Odierno told reporters at the U.S. military headquarters outside Baghdad. "I think many of the attacks in Baghdad are from individuals that have been in fact funded or trained by the Iranians."

So while our troops have been being killed as a result of Iranian actions, we still refuse to do anything to protect our troops?

And Hey G.W. Bush, I didn’t see ya doing too much to challenge and stop the Iranians while ya were top dog now did ya there pal????

So just sit back as Iranian operatives kill Americans, A-holes.

Within a few weeks after our troops are out of Iraq it will all have been for nought.

Iran killing American GIs and Zero's idea of a response was to invite them for a hot dog cook out? I guess that is no stranger than the Government giving GM to the UAW and running the banks.

We sure live in bad times.
