US special forces ‘inside Iran’

It looks like the US is not content to be fighting on two fronts at once, they appear to be wanting to open a third according to this BBC report which says that "intelligence officials have revealed that Iran is the US’ “next strategic target”" and that US special forces are in the country. The US are quoted as saying that it is "riddled with inaccuracies" and that they "don’t believe that some of the conclusions he’s drawing are based on fact".

Then again there’s a lot of room to maneuver in those words – "riddled with inaccuracies" could mean he’s got the numbers of troops involved wrong, or some of their specific tasks, "don’t believe that some of the conclusions he’s drawing are based on fact" allows the spokesman to say later that "well, I didn’t know what was going on" if it later turns out to be true.
