Iran, Iraq US and hostages

Stunningly, it seems that US forces attempted to grab 2 senior Iranian security personnel who were in Iraq on the invitation of the Iraqi president! Patrick Cockburn writes about it here and here. They failed to grab their main targets and instead took 5 Iran officials who's regular job seems to have been issuing travel documentation to Kurds doing business with Iran.

It's pretty amazing that they would do this and puts the sailor abductions in perspective.
