  • Tehran Says Israelis Gathering in Iraq to Bomb Iran
    Posted by David A. Fulghum 3:28 PM on May 03, 2011

    This is my favorite new rumor from the government-run press in Iran. Reuters put together this story yesterday afternoon. It stands in the archives of unsubstantiated rumor beside the WW1 report that Russian soldiers were marching through London on their way to the battlelines in France. You could tell they were Russians because they still had snow on their boots.

    TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iranian state television ran a report Monday saying Israeli military aircraft were massing at a U.S. air base in Iraq for a strike on Iran.

    Israel said it had no knowledge of such a strike plan, as reported on the website of Iran's English-language Press TV, and Iraq's air force commander denied the report. The Pentagon dismissed it as "ridiculous."

    Read the rest over at Reuters.
