"I couldn't comment either way," White House spokeswoman Dana Perino told reporters after the New Yorker magazine reported Sunday that the Bush administration has beefed up its covert operations against Iran's leadership.

My Comment: Iran is going down a slippery slope with everyone. Sunni Arabs, Israel, the U.S. and the Western World. China, Russia and India can also be added to this group. They are also in dispute with numerous ethnic groups in their own country. Their economy is kaput, with 85% of it dependent on the government. The intellectuals and elite of the country are also bailing out. It looks like the Iranian Revolution is finally sputtering out, and its pursuit of nuclear weapons is its last hurrah.
