State Dept. Ignored Warnings of Iranian Efforts to Destabilize Iraq

State Department counterterrorism officials warned in late April that Iran had “trained, funded, and provided guidance” to ethnic Iraqi terror groups bent on destabilizing the country.

The April warning appears to directly contradict and undermine comments last week by a State Department spokeswoman claiming that the United States and Iran have a “shared interest.”

As Iraqi militants continue to wage attacks and seize territory, the State Department has signaled that it is willing to work with neighboring Iran to stabilize the country. They have even raised the idea of discussing Iraq on the sidelines of the ongoing nuclear discussions taking place in Vienna.

However, the recent outreach to Iran runs counter to the State Department’s own Country Report on Terrorism issued just six weeks ago.

You mean “John Kerry ignored warnings of Iranian efforts to destabilize Iraq.”

The state department was way too busy destabizing Iraq to pay any attention to what Iran was doing.

Hard to say that this isn’t Obama’s goal.
