2 Questions for Rummy

As our Secretary of Defense prepares to make his way to Crawford to dodge Cindy Sheehan and glad hand the Pioneer/Ranger set, some new information has come to light:


WASHINGTON - Some weapons entering Iraq are coming from Iran, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld (search) said Tuesday, though he indicated it was unclear whether they were coming from elements of the Iranian government or from other parties.
Were I in the Pentagon Press Corp..I’d have two questions for Rummy:

1. Are these Iranian weapons the ones that we sent in exchange for hostages during the Iran/Contra Scandal?

2. How is it that Ronald Reagan didn't fight the "war on terror" in order to catch the guy that took our citizens hostage...and is now President of Iran?
