More on the phony ballots from Iran to Iraq

I’ve received many emails from readers who doubt the story written by Dexter Filkins in the NYT, headlined by Drudge, and then gainsayed by Al-Reuters, quoting some Iraqi officials. So I asked Filkins, who says: “we did get back in touch with the source, who stands by the story. There is a written report on the incident from Dyala province, where the truck crossed.”

As I’ve said all along, the story sounds right to me, and I’m not impressed with the denials.
