Iran supporting Al Qaeda?

On this morning’s The Morning Show (KPFA in Berkeley, CA), Phillip Maldari interviewed David Barsamian of Alternative Radio. They were talking about the ratcheting up of rhetoric about Iran ... the content of the rhetoric being how Iran is supporting Al Qaeda in Iraq and now the Taliban in Afghanistan. That this misinformation is supposed to pump up the U.S. citizenry and get them ready for some kind of attack on Iran by the U.S. However, Barsamian explains that Iran is 90% Shia and Al Qaeda and the Taliban regard them as heretics. Barsamian finds it incredible that these enemies would now be in cahoots.

Barsamian is on a book tour for, Targeting Iran, which examines the U.S.-Iran standoff. His co-authors are Noam Chomsky, Ervand Abrahamian, Nahid Mozaffari.
