11 Iranians

A new report provides yet another thorn in the side of the "Bomb Iran" minions:

The U.S. military's claim comes as new statistics show that the vast majority of foreign fighters in Iraq are not coming from Iran but Arab allies of the United States. The New York Times reports Saudi Arabia and Libya were the source of about 60 percent of the foreign fighters who came to Iraq in the past year. While American officials have accused Iran of aiding anti-U.S. militants, only 11 Iranians are in U.S. detention in Iraq.
Emphasis Mine.

I'm sure we can expect a change in rhetoric from the White House on who are new enemies are. Probably a bad idea to hold one's breath though.
