A top Iranian lawmaker lashed out Saturday at the United States for authorizing its troops to kill or capture Iranians in Iraq whom US forces believe to pose a threat to them. Alaeddin Borujerdi said on Iranian state-television Saturday, "This is support for terrorism. It is against all recognized international treaties to order the death of nationals of another country in a foreign land." Boroujerdi, the head of the Iranian Parliament's Foreign Policy and National Security Committee, was referring to comments by Defense Secretary Robert Gates Friday that US forces "are authorized to go after those who are trying to kill them."
