stepping up ops in iran

i'm not all that in touch with the news media, honestly. but had any of you heard about this story, involving congress authorizing $400 million to step up covert ops in iran? it's front-page news today in france. still working my way through the stories, but it's interesting to see what's likely to affect the perception of america o'er there... (and has it hit al jazeera yet? can't imagine this making too many friends.)

Isn't it sort of... odd to have news stories about increasing covert ops?

why yes, yes it does.

i kinda imagine most of the involved governments already had a good idea what was going on, but it sorta seems like a PR nightmare.
