This article in USA Today claims that attacks against US soldiers in Iraq using armor piercing roadside bombs supplied by Iran have dramatically decreased. However, there was absolutely no proof offered by administration officials in the original charges against Iran; there is also no evidence in the USA Today article that the attacks were ever attributed to Iran in the first place—the assertion is based on only a claim.
“Closet neocon” Kenneth Pollack—who fiercely advocated the Iraq invasion, pushes sanctions on Iran and is accused by the US government of spying for Israel—claims the Iranians “got kicked in the teeth the past six months” as an explanation. However, it is more likely the decline in accusations are a primer for renewed attempts at diplomacy between Iran and the US.
