"We are going to need to deal with what Iran is doing inside Iraq," national security adviser Stephen Hadley said. Added Cheney: "Iran is fishing in troubled waters inside Iraq." The U.S. military in Baghdad said five Iranians arrested in northern Iraq last week were connected to an Iranian Revolutionary Guard faction that funds and arms insurgents in Iraq. "We do not want them doing what they can to destabilize the situation inside Iraq," Cheney said.
