This is Really Starting to Tick Me Off

What Admiral Mullen said yesterday, repeatedly, that Iranian support for insurgents, which he had expected to go down, has remained remarkably "consistent" over the last two years  He was a pussy and dodged addressing the issue of exactly who in Iran was behind these different things (could it be a faction?)  He also ignored the idea that maybe some of this evidence should be presented to the public.  In fact, if a "press conference" had something to do with information being disseminated, Admiral Mullen is a failure.  My opinion?  Loyal to Bush and not very bright.  In fact, he might not even be bright.

But compare that this entire flea-bitten story from the AP:
US official: Iran boosting support for Iraqi insurgents
By LOLITA C. BALDOR – 21 hours ago
WASHINGTON (AP) — The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff says he's concerned about increased Iranian arms and training aid to insurgents in Iraq.
Adm. Mike Mullen told a Pentagon news conference Friday that he has "no smoking gun" proof that the highest leadership in the Iranian government has approved stepped up support for insurgents who are killing U.S. and Iraqi forces. But he said that it's clear that recently made Iranian weapons are flowing into Iraq, including to insurgents leading the fight in Basra. As Mullen put it, Iran "seems to be ratcheting things up."
