Now can we question their patriotism?

ABC News and Brian Ross show their support with today's article THE SECRET WAR AGAINST IRAN. (Gee, what part of secret don't they understand?) And Boo! According to their report Dick Cheney's fingerprints are all over it. Nice timing, too. Thanks ABC, for releasing this 'secret report' during the "critical negotiations' with Iran over the hostages.

Here's a snippet:
A Pakistani tribal militant group responsible for a series of deadly guerrilla raids inside Iran has been secretly encouraged and advised by American officials since 2005, U.S. and Pakistani intelligence sources tell ABC News. The group, called Jundullah, is made up of members of the Baluchi tribe and operates out of the Baluchistan province in Pakistan, just across the border from Iran. It has taken responsibility for the deaths and kidnappings of more than a dozen Iranian soldiers and officials.

U.S. officials say the U.S. relationship with Jundullah is arranged so that the U.S. provides no funding to the group, which would require an official presidential order or "finding" as well as congressional oversight. Tribal sources tell ABC News that money for Jundullah is funneled to its youthful leader, Abd el Malik Regi, through Iranian exiles who have connections with European and Gulf states.

Funny. This 2004 Asia Times article says here that Jundallah is al-Qaeda with none other than prominent Muslim homey, Khalid Sheik Mohammed a former member.
Jundullah was allegedly headed by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the al-Qaeda operational commander of the September 11 terrorist attack in the US. He was arrested in Pakistan early last year.

I'm SO confused. Even wICKipedia says they are an al Qaeda franchise. Just found this over at HotAir. Brother. The enemy of my enemy is my friend?
