The NY Times does not make these charges in order to fan the flames of war 
against Iran. In fact, that is the *contradiction* of US foreign policy. 
The US has bolstered the Shi'ite majority in Iraq against the Sunni 
minority. In all the war propaganda against Iran, there is very little 
attention paid to Shi'ite control of the police, etc. The only people who 
make a stink about Iran helping the Mahdists or other Shi'ite militias in 
Iraq are the far-right elements in the Murdoch press, etc. who are pretty 
well marginal in US foreign policy debates.
