Iran, Working For a Better Iraq (Through Fake Ballots)

(NY Times) BAGHDAD, IRAQ - Less than two days before nationwide elections, Iraqi border police seized a tanker truck on Tuesday that had just crossed from Iran filled with thousands of forged ballots, an official at Iraq's Interior Ministry said.

Umm, wow… Not surprised, but still, wow. Iran and the US both want the same thing. A government in Iraq that could be an ally. The US goes about it by trying to secure enough stability that free elctions may take place. Iran goes about it by letting the US set up the elections, and then sending in hundreds of thousands of their own “personalized” ballots.

Aww shucks, lets just give them some nuke power, after all, the Holocaust never happened… at least that’s what Iran’s President says.

UPDATE:

BAGHDAD(Reuters) - The head of Iraq's border guards denied police reports on Wednesday that a tanker truck stuffed with thousands of forged ballot papers had been seized crossing into Iraq from Iran before Thursday's elections.

"This is all a lie," said Lieutenant General Ahmed al-Khafaji, the chief of the U.S.-trained force which has responsibility for all Iraq's borders.

"I heard this yesterday and I checked all the border crossings right away. The borders are all closed anyway," he told Reuters.

Iraq's frontiers are closed for the period of the election.

"I contacted all the border crossing points and there was no report of any such incident," Khafaji said.

This gets the “WTF” award for the day. Everyone say “Thank You New York Times”…
