    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. intelligence has detected what appears to be an al Qaeda training camp in a remote region of eastern Iran along the border with Afghanistan, NBC News reported on Wednesday, citing unidentified sources.

    The network said it was told by its sources that overhead imagery of the site shows a suspected terrorist camp that includes a driving course and rifle range very much like al Qaeda camps in Afghanistan that were used to train for assassinations, NBC reported.

    NBC quoted the sources as saying that Iran's civilian government may not know the camp exists but that Iranian military and intelligence certainly would.

    Asked about the report, a U.S. official said "there are some pockets of al Qaeda in Iran near the border" but would not comment further. A Pentagon spokeswoman declined to comment, referring calls to the intelligence community.

    The Washington Post reported last month that two top al Qaeda deputies were harbored in Iran along with dozens of al Qaeda fighters.

    Iran has denied that al Qaeda members have sought refuge within its borders

    "It has become a bad habit of some American circles to issue repetitious and baseless charges against Iran. Those al Qaeda members are not in Iran," Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid Reza Asefi told Reuters in response to the earlier report.

    Washington has named Iran part of an "axis of evil" accusing it of seeking to acquire weapons of mass destruction and sponsoring terrorism, a charge Iran denies.

    I always viewed ET for trading insight and shop talk always ignoring the bs that goes along with it. Till I read Bungs post here. Glad you weren't advising during WWII we'd be speaking German now. Pre-emptive is the new USA policy, strike them before they strike us; again. Refreshing change, a president with brains and balls to do and say the correct things.

  9. Hey, while all the bulky stuff such as tanks, carriers ,jets are in that corner of the world, you might as well take out the next axis. Save gas money ferrying the big stuff 8000 miles back and forth. Sort off like getting a discount from the landscaper currently doing your neighbors lawn since he has the backhoe, wheelbarrows,etc close by, he'll do your yard for 50-% less.
  10. Yep, you people and your "gods" are the problem, aren't they??
