These hunks of copper found in a workshop in Iraq are the "high-tech" components of deadly "explosively formed penetrators" (EFPs) that administration flacks say come from Iran.

Because, clearly, Iraqis are too stupid to make these copper disks on their own.

Never mind that these explosives have been used by many groups, including the Irish Republican Army. Never mind that the U.S. has their own brand of EFP.

Here's what the official Iranian version of this weapon actually looks like:

Here's another image comparing the so-called "professionally made" Iranian EFP found in Iraq and the U.S. version (yes, we make these deadly bombs too):

Does something seem fishy? Check here and here and here.

Then there's the interesting fact that these weapons are being used by Sunnis, who are doing most of the attacks against U.S. troops, and who are enemies of Iran.
