  Talking Up an Iran-Al Qaeda Connection

I haven't read the new National Intelligence Estimate (as if! I'm on vacation), nor have I read much of the reporting on it. But the mainstream reports I've seen so far do not allude to the subject at the center of this article in the neocon New York Sun: an alleged link between Iran and Al-Qaeda. Sun correspondent Eli Lake says:
One of two known Al Qaeda leadership councils meets regularly in eastern Iran, where the American intelligence community believes dozens of senior Al Qaeda leaders have reconstituted a good part of the terror conglomerate's senior leadership structure.
I have no information to give context to this allegation, so I merely note it for the record, with the warning that we may end up hearing a lot more about this from Iran-warmonger types.

The Corner, for instance, is already flogging it.

I'd be very interested to hear more about this alleged AlQaida-Iran Connection: the "intelligence" and its sources,
and whether those who claim such a cooperation ever consider how such an alliance could be possible.

As far as I know: It would be more likely to get an alliance of Bush/Cheney & AlQaida than one of Iran & AlQaida.

AlQaida only wants to HIT the USA, but it intends to ANNIHILATE the heretic Shiite diversion from True Islam.

AlQaida in Mesopotamia has killed a lot more Shiites (and has killed them because they are Shiites) than they have killed Americans, either in the USA or in Iraq.

Hitler and Goebbels: Propaganda ought to give the people always only ONE enemy (I don't remember the exact wording).
And so, we can infer, propaganda will always insist in merging all the different enemies into ONE, united by a huge devilish secret conspiracy.
