Hard(ly) evidence

The headline is unequivocal:
Gates: Bombs tie Iran to Iraq extremists
The article...not so much:
One intelligence official said the U.S. is "fairly comfortable" it knows where the explosives came from.

Gates told reporters that markings on explosives provide "pretty good" evidence that Iranians are supplying either weapons or technology for Iraqi extremists.

"I think there's some serial numbers, there may be some markings on some of the projectile fragments that we found" that point to Iran, [Gates] said.
It's gotten so bad even the Associated Press is willing to point out the obvious:
Gates' remarks left unclear how the U.S. knows the serial numbers are traceable to Iran and whether such weapons would have been sent to Iraq by the Iranian government or by private arms dealers.
