The smoking gun Bush needs to justify an attack on Iran?

He's been looking for something he can use to convince the American public of the necessity to attack Iran and this may be just what he was waiting for. Of course it could also be a steaming pile of bullshit too.
The American military said Tuesday that it had credible evidence linking Iranians and their Iraqi associates, detained here in raids last week, to criminal activities, including attacks against American forces. Evidence also emerged that some detainees had been involved in shipments of weapons to illegal armed groups in Iraq.

In its first official confirmation of last week’s raids, the military said it had confiscated maps, videos, photographs and documents in one of the raids on a site in Baghdad. The military confirmed the arrests of five Iranians, and said three of them had been released.

The Bush administration has described the two Iranians still being held Tuesday night as senior military officials. Maj. Gen. William Caldwell IV, the chief spokesman for the American command, said the military, in the raid, had “gathered specific intelligence from highly credible sources that linked individuals and locations with criminal activities against Iraqi civilians, security forces and coalition force personnel.”

Let's see, primarily Saudis attacked Americans on 9/11, but Bush invaded Afghanistan. Then he invaded Iraq just to make sure he got 'em all. Now he has evidence Iranians have attacked Iraqi civilians so its probably OK to attack Iran. Maybe its just me, but all this logic is going right over my head.
