Skepticism over Iran...? Well, duh, WaPo...

check out the phrase between the dashes...
Skepticism Over Iraq Haunts U.S. Iran Policy

The specter of the war in Iraq -- a war the Bush administration denied it was planning, supported by evidence that turned out to be false -- looms large over administration policy toward Iran.

they denied they were planning a war in iraq and then turned around and supported it with false evidence... now, the exact same scenario is playing out, and we are supposed to pretend the previous one didn't happen...?
The administration, conscious of its low credibility, believes it has gone out of its way to convince doubters that Iran is not Iraq all over again.

"No, no, no, no," White House spokesman Tony Snow said Monday in response to questions about whether the administration embellished evidence against Iran in a U.S. military briefing in Baghdad the previous day. "I'm almost ready to hit my head on the microphone."

oh, tony, please... be my guest... bang your head to bloody bits on the microphone... it's not going to change a thing... the fact is, nobody believes a single thing this administration says, particularly THIS guy...
Challenged on the accuracy of U.S. intelligence, President Bush said Wednesday there is no doubt the Iranian government is providing armor-piercing weapons to kill American soldiers in Iraq. But he backed away from claims the top echelon of Iran's government was responsible.

so, you believe him...? i sure as hell don't...
