The Making of the Boogeyman, 2006

As part of Bush & Co.‘s campaign to turn Iran into the next imminent threat, Condoleezza Rice calls Tehran a “central banker for terrorism.”
So, just to get this straight: Iran is the new Iraq, which was the new Afghanistan, which was the new Russia?
SYDNEY, Australia (March 15) - U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Thursday urged Iran to resume negotiations over its nuclear program, while also calling the country a central banker for terrorism.
Rice was speaking after meeting her Australian counterpart Alexander Downer for talks that covered topics including Iraq, Iran’s nuclear ambitions, Indonesia’s development and the recent nuclear deal between Washington and India.
Rice called Iran the “central banker of terrorism,” though she didn’t elaborate on that, and said it was time for the country to “heed the international community’s call” to resume negotiations on its nuclear program.
