WAR: Pressure Point

I'm not sure how you can interpret this story as anything other than the Iranians offering just enough cooperation to induce paralysis in U.S. policymakers. Certainly, from their perspective, the cost of a few of the many extremists who travel a "well-worn" route between Afghanistan and Iraq is negligible compared to the benefits of inducing U.S. inaction.

Not just US politicians. International too.
"Bush administration officials pointed to U.N. Security Council Resolutions 1267 and 1373, which state that harboring al-Qaeda members constitutes a threat to international peace and security, and authorize force to combat that threat."

Ah, that's funny.. The UN doing anything about this.

Let's not forget that good ol' boy Vladimir "Let's cut off the energy" Putin claiming someone else is internationally irresponsible.

The long we put off dealing with Iran the weaker we appear to the rest of the world and especially Islamic extreamists. Better to get this fight over with.

If you stop and think about it, the the regime in Iran was changed, there would be no other "major" sources of support for extreamism.
