Con Coughlin is more of a mouthpiece for the militarist wing of the ruling 
class than Judith Miller or Michael Gordon here in the U.S. Here, for 
example, was what he had to say back in November 

A major article appearing on the front page of the Daily Telegraph alleges 
that Iran is "training the next al-Qa'eda leaders." The article itself 
claims that "If al-Qa'eda is agreeable to appointing al-Adel and other 
al-Qa'eda figures currently based in Iran to senior positions, the Iranians 
have agreed to provide training facilities and equipment," but, appearing 
today on MSNBC with Chris Matthews, the author, Con Coughlin, went much 
further, claiming that Iran is already operating al Qaeda training camps, 
and sending trained fighters to both Afghanistan and Iraq. He also raised 
the specter of Iran giving al Qaeda a non-existent "suitcase nuke" from 
their non-existent supply of nuclear weapons, so al Qaeda could blow up a 
major Western capital.
