Well,...it Isn't About a Bald, Psychotic Singer, or a Dead, Walking Advert for Silicone Implants,...

So,...obviously, the usual suspects (CeeNoNews, SeeBS, MSMSNBC) haven't said much about this VERY IMPORTANT, NON-OSCAR AWARD-RELATED story:

BAQOUBA, Iraq — U.S. and Iraqi forces have seized a large weapons cache that includes parts for sophisticated roadside bombs that are believed to originate in Iran, U.S. military investigators said.

Military officials said that the arsenal is one of the biggest found north of the Iraqi capital and contains components for so-called EFPs — explosively formed projectiles that fire a slug of molten metal that can penetrate armored vehicles.

The U.S. military has said elite Iranian corps are funneling EFPs to Shiite militias in Iraq for use against American troops.

Earlier this month, U.S. officials showed reporters in Baghdad pieces of EFPs they said were directly traceable to Iran.

An informant tipped off Iraqi police to the weapons stash Saturday, the military said in a statement. It was discovered near Baqouba, the provincial capital of Diyala province, about 35 miles northeast of Baghdad.

A military official declined to link the weapons to any particular militant group, but said the cache was found near a village where the Mehdi Army militia of anti-American Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr are strong.

Remember folks: Nothing to see here. Just move along!
