The following editorial appeared in the Sacramento Bee on Sunday, Feb. 11:
President Bush claims "Iran is providing material support for attacks on American troops." He has presented no evidence, but implies that the Iranian government is killing American soldiers in Iraq, an act of war.
All of this has an eerily familiar ring. The American people should be skeptical.
Iran does pose a potential threat to American interests. But given all we know about claims made to justify the Iraq invasion, there is every reason for Congress to question every claim the Bush administration makes about Iran.
