I think "he didn't provide any details of that agreement" as a revealing part of this new propaganda...
In actuality, we support Al-Qaeda in Libya, and in Iran!
This is all nonsense, like everything else that comes out of the USA and the White House. Just like they painted Iraq as having something to do with Al-Qaeda, they do the same now with Iran. Keep pushing for your wars, you might be bankrupt before you get to wage them however.
No coincidence that it is an official with the U.S. Treasury who announces this 'secret deal.'
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration accused Iran on Thursday of entering into a "secret deal" with an al-Qaida offshoot that provides money and recruits for attacks in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The Treasury Department designated six members of the unit as terrorists subject to U.S. sanctions.
The U.S. intelligence community has in the past disagreed about the extent of direct links between the Iranian government and al-Qaida. Thursday's allegations went further than what most analysts had previously said was a murky relationship with limited cooperation.
David S. Cohen, Treasury's point man for terrorism and financial intelligence, said Iran entered a "secret deal with al-Qaida allowing it to funnel funds and operatives through its territory." He didn't provide any details of that agreement, but said the sanctions seek to disrupt al-Qaida's work in Iraq and deny the terrorist group's leadership much-needed support.
