A Taliban commander has credited Iranian-supplied weapons with successful operations against coalition forces in Afghanistan.Unfortunately, I don't think that even this news would be enough to make a President Obama walk back from his "no preconditions" position on having tea with Ahmadinejad.
The comments by the commander, who would not be named but operates in the south east of the country where there has been a surge in Taliban attacks, were a rare admission of co-operation between elements within the Iranian regime and forces fighting British and American troops in Afghanistan.
