Leaked cables reveal scale of Iran’s influence in Iraq

Leaked cables have revealed that Iranian intelligence has co-opted much of the Iraqi government’s cabinet, infiltrated its military leadership, and even tapped into a network of sources once run by the CIA. According to cables, passed to the Intercept and shared with the NYT, so prevalent is Iran in Iraq’s affairs that Iranian officers effectively have free rein across key institutions of state.
