    I'm sorry but the Pentagon didn't need the VP to task them with this job. They have scenarios for just about every possible encounter, up to and including repelling an armed invasion of the U.S. from the Vatican.

    You can bet that the Pentagon has been seriously tasking Iran since 1979, at least.

    Your article is slanted.
