Via the USG Open Source Center, Ayman al-Zawahiri lashes out at Iran:
He [Zawahiri] sees Iran as hypocritical and actually tacitly cooperating with the US. He dismisses Muqtada al-Sadr as an Iranian cat’s paw. He attacks Hasan Nasrallah of Lebanon’s Hizbullah.
But with no evidence and complete ignorance—or deliberate disregard—of regional dynamics, the NRO’s Larry Kudlow claimed in April:
Without question, it is a near certainty that Iran and Syria are helping al Qaeda with money, arms, and explosives. And yes, if we leave now, al Qaeda will have an open field in which to expand their operations and prepare for the ultimate attack on the United States. [emphasis added]
Note the awkward use of “without question” in conjunction with “it is a near certainty.”
