London, Apr. 04 – Iran’s hard-line leaders are setting up a “secret government” in Iraq, according to a prominent Arabic language news outlet.

The Saudi-affiliated Elaph website wrote in its Friday issue, “The Iranian Intelligence Ministry is creating a secret government in Iraq”.

“Mobs have attacked Iraq which is recovering (following the U.S.-led war) and are trying to tear the country apart as much as they can”, it said, referring to Iranian Intelligence agents which have infiltrated Iraq mainly from the south.

The Elaph site claimed that following the 2003 war, the Iranian regime launched its biggest recruitment operation through agents of its Ministry of Intelligence who had infiltrated into Iraq. The number of recruits the regime had gathered, using religious propaganda, was well in the thousands, the news source claimed.

In recent week a number of top Iraqi and U.S. officials have accused Iran of meddling in Iraqi affairs. Those include Porter Goss, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, who on March 17 told the U.S. Senate Armed Services Committee in a presentation on worldwide threats to U.S. national security, “I think it’s fair to say that just about everybody who’s been watching understands that Iran has been meddling in the affairs of Iraq”.

In late February Simaye Azadi, a Persian-language satellite television network close to the opposition National Council of Resistance, said it had obtained documents from Fajr Garrison of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, which showed that the Islamic republic was running a vast underground network in Iraq with 40,000 agents on its payroll.
