Political links between Iran and Iraq will be difficult to sever
By Patrick Cockburn
The Independent 26 March 2007

"Fuad Hussein, the chief of staff of the Kurdish president Massoud Barzani, says "they were after Mohammed Jafari, the deputy chairman of Iran's National Security Council." It is a measure of the difficulty America has in getting its close allies in Iraq, notably the Kurds, to join it in confronting Iran that Mohammed Jafari, the powerful Iranian security official they were trying to abduct, was in Arbil as part of an Iranian delegation. He had just visited Mr Barzani in his mountain-top headquarters at Salahudin and earlier he met with Iraqi President Jalal Tabani in Dokan in eastern Kurdistan."

"The two senior Iranian officers the US sought to capture were Mohammed Jafari, the powerful deputy head of the Iranian National Security Council, and General Minojahar Frouzanda, the chief of intelligence of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, according to Kurdish officials."

Essentially the two stories are identical (check for yourself) , one curious feature is that if you Google "General Minojahar Frouzanda" , "General Minojahar Frouzandah" (as Google suggests) or " Minojahar Frouzanda" or "Minojahar Frouzandah" , on the Web, News or Blogs - it returns zero.

Missing Lynx ? What next ? Missing General Minojahar Frouzanda ?
