Leak: Iran offered Canada intelligence on Afghanistan

Canadian intelligence recieved an offer from Iranian authorities for information on potential attacks in Afghanistan, according to a July 2008 cable released by Wikileaks this week. 
Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and Security officials initiated the connection and offered Canada "help" on issues pertaining to Afghanistan, according to the leaked document.  However Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) Director Judd expressed reservations, "'we have not figured out what they are up to,'  since it is clear that the 'Iranians want ISAF to bleed...slowly.'"
