The Cafferty File: Iran's involvement?


On "The Situation Room" today, we asked viewers the following question, and here are some of our favorite responses that we didn't get to read on air:

When it comes to Iran's alleged involvement in Iraq, who do you believe?

After "axis of evil," yellowcake, 9-11 al Qaeda/Saddam links and WMD, I'll have to hedge my bet.
D., Georgia

I find it amazing that the news media is again buying into Pres. Bush's latest propaganda, i.e. weapons from Iran are being used against the Americans. It is being done so you will take your eye off the ball. That being why innocent American soldiers are dying for no good reason... blame it on Iran, not him.
Gerry

The Ahmadinejad government arms and funds the Shia militia in Iraq to increase instability there, because instability and the undermining of the peace process is the formula for this regime's survival.
Sahand, Toronto, Canada

All I know is that I do not believe one thing the Bush administration has to say about Iran or any other issue. Bush, Cheney Inc. have lied to us, over and over and over again. They have zero credibility. And how dumb do they think we are? They are pulling all the same tricks out of the hat as they did pre-Iraq.
Vicki, Crystal Lake, Illinois

How much do Russian President Vladimir Putin's comments about America's global role matter?

Don't kid yourself. We don't want a hassle with Russia. Putin's comments matter a lot.
Jake, South Padre, Texas

His comments do matter. Remember Bush looked into his soul and saw that he was a good man. Bush should listen to him.
Peggy, Eldorado Springs, Missouri

Putin's comments matter only because they publicly confirm what I've suspected and known for years. He obviously doesn't care about our goals for peace and stability in Iraq, has no regard for our interests in the Middle East, and is quite clearly not a U.S. ally.
Matt, Shreveport, Louisiana

Putin's remarks don't surprise me, from everything I've read, Russia is in bed with Iran, and apparently has been reading the Cafferty File. Sounds just like you.
Charles, New Palestine, Indiana

How much does a presidential candidate's religion matter?

Jack, Of all the criteria I look for in a president, religious affiliation is way down on the list. As an atheist, I'm willing to consider a religious person, as long as he/she doesn't wave it like a flag, or try to shove it down my throat.
Mary, Jupiter, Florida

Religion shouldn't matter (unless the person in question is ultra-religious), but in this country there will always be many people who won’t vote for someone because they aren't good Christians, just like many people won’t vote for Sen. Obama because he’s black or Sen. Clinton because she’s a woman. If there was a black woman who was the best candidate for president, in this age she sadly wouldn't stand a chance.
Alex, New York

The candidates' religion to me does not matter. Integrity, honesty and issues are what matter to me.
Paul, Pewaukee, Wisconsin

No, Jack it doesn't matter unless the person claims God speaks directly to them.
Eric, California
