Rumsfeld's Been Busy

In 1974, Rumsfeld claimed, without evidence, that the Soviet Union has been "very busy" building weapons systems. In 2003 Rumsfeld claimed, without evidence, that we knew exactly where the WMD were. In August 2005 Rummsfeld claims:

...that weapons have been found in Iraq that were "clearly, unambiguously" from Iran and that the weapons would ultimately become a problem for Tehran.

"What you do know is that the Iranians did not stop them from coming in," he told reporters. "It's notably unhelpful for the Iranians to be allowing weapons of those types to cross the border," said Rumsfeld. He offered no further specifics on the weapons.

Forgive me for thinking this is propoganda. While it's not exactly a rattling sabre, it's certainly one of many raised eye-brows in the direction of Tehran; another item on the list of demands we will make or they will face an invasion. "Along with halting their nuclear program, Iran must stop the flow of weapons into Iraq!"
