Hezbollah, Iran & Syria: From the Horse's Mouth

Little Green Footballs reports on an interview with Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah in a Kuwaiti newspaper, in which the Hezbollah leader admits to Iranian and Syrian sponsorship of his terrorist organization:

“Iran assists the organization with money, weapons, and training,
motivated by a religious fraternity and ethnic solidarity,” Nasrallah said. “And the help is funneled through Syria, and everybody knows it.”

More embarassment for Iran... from the New York Times

In a "News Analysis" piece, New York Times casts doubt on Iran's fledgling nuclear program:
The many setbacks and outright failures of Tehran’s experimental program
suggest that its bluster may outstrip its technical expertise. And the problems
help explain American intelligence estimates that Iran is at least four years
away from producing a nuclear weapon.

What the Iranians are not talking about, experts with access to the atomic
agency’s information say, is that their experimental effort to make centrifuges
work has struggled to achieve even limited success and appears to have been put
on the back burner so the country’s leaders can declare that they are moving to
the next stage.
