Briefly noted

An official press release on the Multinational Forces Iraq website is headlined

[Regimental Combat Team]-5 Marines Discover 12 Caches, Iranian Ordnance in Al Anbar Province

It's an oddly haphazard approach to the recurring talking point about Iranian interference in Iraq, perhaps reflective of the curious implication that Iran would be supplying Sunni insurgents.
