Irans President Ahmadinejad To Visit Iraq

Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is scheduled to make a visit to Iraq on Saturday, March 2nd, 2008. It will be the first such visit by and Iranian President in fifty years. Keeping in mind that there is much evidence that Iranian Special Forces are operating in Iraq under the guise of the "insurgency" I'd like to you to consider the following from AKI International.

Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is scheduled to arrive in Baghdad on Saturday afternoon in an historic visit - the first to Iraq by such a high level representative from the Iranian government in 50 years.

Ahmadinejad will be accompanied by a delegation of 30 people who are already in Baghdad in preparation for his visit, which many in Iran have described as "taking a walk in a minefield."

The Iranian leader is expected to meet Iraqi authorities and one of the key issues that they are expected to discuss is the charge that Iran is supporting rebel forces that are behind the many suicide bombings that have targeted Iraqi institutions.

Mohammed Abdullah al Ghawami, the head of the Mukhaberat, the Iraqi secret services, made just such an accusation ahead of Ahmadinejad's visit.

On Wednesday he announced that he had documents which showed the support provided by the Iranian government and Iranian intelligence to al-Qaeda-linked groups operating in Iraq.

In the past, there have been reports in the Iraqi media about training camps for suicide bombers run by the Iranian Revolutionary Guards along the border with Iraq as well as suicide belts made in Iran.

However this latest accusation is being made by an Iraqi institution against the Iranian government and it comes just as Iraq is preparing to welcome the Iranian leader.

Ahmadinejad also arrives in Baghdad as 11 officials of his Revolutionary Guards are currently detained in an Iraqi jail, and not in a detention centre run by the Americans. They have been accused of fuelling the violence and supporting the attacks against the government.

I'm sure the Legacy Media will be all over this any time now.
