The unclassified version of the [U.S. "Intelligence"] report titled “Worldwide Threat Assessment of the US Intelligence Communities,” which was released on February 26, 2015, noted Iran’s efforts to battle extremists, including those of the ISIL terrorist group, who were perceived to constitute the greatest terrorist threat to American interests worldwide.
Highlighting Iran’s regional role, the report pointed to the Islamic Republic’s “intentions to dampen sectarianism, build responsive partners, and deescalate tensions with Saudi Arabia.”
Iran has “overarching strategic goals of enhancing its security, prestige, and regional influence [that] have led it to pursue capabilities to meet its civilian goals,” the report said.
The report also said that Hezbollah is countering ISIL Takfiri terrorists in Syria and Iraq.Of course, Iran and its wingéd monkeys, Hezbo, still want to unleash a genocide upon the Jewish people, starting with those in Israel. But, obviously, U.S. "Intelligence" considers that a minor blip next to the supremacist Shiites', um, "overarching strategic goals."
