BRUSSELS Iran is directing surveillance drones over Iraq from an airfield in Baghdad and is secretly supplying Iraq with tons of military equipment, supplies and other assistance, American officials said. Tehran has also deployed an intelligence unit there to intercept communications, the officials said.
The secret Iranian programs are part of a broader effort by Tehran to gather intelligence and help Prime Minister Nuri Kamal al-Malikis government in its struggle against Sunni militants with the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.
Gen. Qassim Suleimani, the head of Irans paramilitary Quds Force, has visited Iraq at least twice to help Iraqi military advisers plot strategy. And Iran has deployed about a dozen other Quds Force officers to advise Iraqi commanders, and help mobilize more than 2,000 Shiite militiamen from southern Iraq, American officials said.

Someone kill ISIS, jeez. They’re a crappy, poorly trained military force that run their trucks in a straight line from town to town.
Light ‘em up.
And which side is that? If Iran is stepping up to stop the ISIS maniacs, it's stopping the monster US meddling created.
Which side is Obama on ? Which ever side wins ?
Some secret, were they supposed to inform the NYT first?
Did you ever think you would ever see the day where the US supported terrorism more than Iran?
Are these Iranian drones replicas of the one they picked up after one of ours “landed” in their desert?
“..Which side is Obama on ? Which ever side wins ?”
Certainly not America’s side. That is a pretty solid starting point...
But as long as Obama supports them, like he does the Syrian rebels, and the Muslim Brotherhood who are behind it all, not going to happen.
Well, when the dust settles, who will be the “good guys” and who will have cut and run? Either way we come out covered with poo. Just when you think the Obamites couldn’t embarass America more...
It’s not a secret if even the NY Times knows about it.
If Obama had a tribe of sons running around in pickup trucks building the New Caliphate...
Iran is anti-ISIS.
That poorly trained military force dares to run their Toyota trucks in a straight line because they know that the US is not going to do anything about it.
Don’t you think that they have intelligence sources right here in Washington DC? There are enough muzzies here who keep their ISIS buddies informed.
We need to think outside the box. If Iran is fighting “terrorists” we were fighting five years ago....then this isn’t all bad. Maybe we can help tip the scales to keep ISSIS and Iran fighting a protracted war. I remember hearing Kissinger stay about the Iran-Iraq war, “It’s too bad both sides can’t lose.” Well maybe we can keep them both busy for another 8 years.
There are plenty right in the Obama administration.
