Abbott and Costello present "Who's in Iraq?"

General Pace, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, says no proof Iran behind Iraq arms:
The top U.S. military officer said on Tuesday the United States does not have proof that Iran's government is responsible for Iranians smuggling weapons and military personnel into Iraq.

President George W. Bush said on Monday components from Iran were being used in powerful roadside bombs used in Iraq, and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said last week that Iranian Revolutionary Guard personnel had been inside Iraq.

Asked whether the United States has proof that Iran's government was behind these developments, Marine Corps Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the military's Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a Pentagon briefing, "I do not, sir."
This is from Voice of America:
General Pace and Secretary Rumsfeld also acknowledged they do not have any proof that the Iranian government is involved in sending weapons or specially trained soldiers into Iraq. But Secretary Rumsfeld said the material and people have been found in Iraq, and it is 'reasonable' to conclude that could not be true without official support from Tehran.
If it was true that "the material and people have been found in Iraq" then they would have proof! Yet, both Pace and Rumsfeld admit they have no proof. Why does this resemble a remake of the Abbott and Costello "Who's on First" routine updated to "Who's in Iraq"?
