So it’s official: the US military says that the 5 Iranians we seized in Irbil (Kurdistan region of Iraq) were Qods Force:
“Preliminary results revealed the five detainees are connected to the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, Qods Force (IRGC-QF), an organization known for providing funds, weapons, improvised explosive device technology and training to extremist groups attempting to destabilize the government of Iraq and attack coalition forces,” the U.S. military said in a statement.
Hardly a surprise. Meanwhile, however, Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini is getting increasingly shrill:
Hosseini said the Iranian representative office where the five men worked was established in Irbil in 1992 to facilitate the visit of Kurdish businessmen and medical patients from Iraq to Iran.
“Then, both countries agreed to promote it to consular level,” he said. “Agreement for formation of the Iranian consulate section was exchanged in the current (Iranian) year….”
Hosseini accused the United States of resorting to “hostility and conflict toward neighbors of Iraq” because he said the country did not want to acknowledge it had failed to bring stability to Iraq.
“The United States should release all the five persons, prevent possible similar acts and compensate damages,” Hosseini said.
Let me see if I understand this correctly: Iran is responding to this capture with agitation approaching hysteria… because they accuse the United States of violating the sanctity of a consulate.
Is that about the size of it?
