From the Wall Street Journal:

Iran's elite military unit, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, has transferred lethal new munitions to its allies in Iraq and Afghanistan in recent months, according to senior U.S. officials, in a bid to accelerate the U.S. withdrawals from these countries.

The Revolutionary Guard has smuggled rocket-assisted exploding projectiles to its militia allies in Iraq, weapons that have already resulted in the deaths of American troops, defense officials said. They said Iranians have also given long-range rockets to the Taliban in Afghanistan, increasing the insurgents' ability to hit U.S. and other coalition positions from a safer distance.

Apparently, President Obama's rambling assurance of withrdrawal wasn't understood clearly enough by Iran, either.  Wasn't Iran the nation to whom Obama suggested we extend a hand if they unclench their fist? And when the young people of Iran tried to revolt, where was our president?
