Remember the fatuous charges by King Hamad that Iran was behind the protests in Bahrain?

Here is the extent of the accusation, according to the former ambassador the Court of Saint James, Shaikh Abdulaziz al-Khalifa:
Al-Khalifa also maintained that Iran was fomenting the protests despite Defense Secretary Robert Gates saying the U.S. had seen no evidence of that. "The one thing that we can assure you that speeches by Hezbollah and elements of the government in Iran and their TV channels and their religious clerics haven't helped the situation, they've inflamed the situation," Al-Khalifa said. "They've outreached to the more hard-line element of the protesters."
As I have said here before, "poppycock!",
