Following up on Martha Raddatz' (subscription required) lead for ABC last Friday, CBS led with Iran's regional military ambitions. David Martin detailed the munitions that Teheran is manufacturing--advanced explosive devices, rocket grenade launchers, assault rifles, anti-aircraft missiles--some of which, he reported, have been found in Iraq. Martin cited evidence that "small arms" had been supplied to some Shiite militias and that one British helicopter had been downed by an Iranian weapon. Apart from that Martin offered no specifics about which fighters have Teheran's backing, just that he has been told that "clear evidence" exists that "Iran wants the United States to bleed as much as possible."
