In its issue number 288, IRGC's Sobh-e Sadegh weekly, published under the supervision of the Political Office of the Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, expressed the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) frustration over Arbil arrest of five of its top commanders posed as diplomats by the U.S. forces in Iraq.
The weekly quoted Brig. Gen. Reza Zaker as saying, Ã¢â‚¬Å“I think the U.S. [authorities] are psychologically mature enough to realize the degree in which their forces are scattered in Afghanistan and Iraq. Not to mention those U.S. citizens in East Asia, Pakistan, India, Africa, Latin America, and Europe just to name a few locations where they can be reached when the need arises. Getting to those targets and locating them is much easier than buying a few ship-loads of cheap Chinese made goods.Ã¢â‚¬Â
