Not so fast

The Bush Administration says that Iran is behind the attacks on the US.
Iranian weapons found in improvised explosive devices in Iraq and the capture of some Iranians did not by themself implicate Tehran, the head of the U.S. military's joint chiefs of staff said on Tuesday.

Officials of U.S.-led forces in Baghdad showed journalists on Sunday fragments of what they said were Iranian-manufactured weapons and said that those at the "highest levels" of Tehran's government were involved in arming Iraqi militants.

Marine Corp Gen. Peter Pace told a news conference in Jakarta that some of the material that has been used in improvised explosive devices in Iraq was from Iran and that some Iranians had been captured during operations against these networks.

"That could not translate to that the Iranian government per se procured these or is directly involved in doing this."

We're not going to do this again, are we?  Go to war (or widen a war) on half-baked politicized evidence?
