Islamist group Ansar al-Islam wiped out in northern Iraq - with help from Iran
'US forces have wiped out an alleged al-Qaeda-linked group in northern Iraq with help from their Kurdish allies -- but also their Iranian foes who have sealed off the Islamist militants' only exit.'

'In their campaign to topple Sadddam, the United States had used Ansar's presence in Iraq to charge the Iraqi president was supporting terrorism, although the Islamists were not deployed in areas under his control.'
