London, Dec. 13 – A former top adviser to United States President George W. Bush on Iraq policy described Iran on Monday as the greatest external threat to Iraq, Reuters news agency reported.

Robert Blackwill, who was deputy national security adviser during Bush’s first term, told the Council on Foreign Relations think tank, “Iraq thinks Iran is the major strategic threat to Iraq”, not suicide bombers or insurgents.

Blackwill was previously Bush’s special envoy to Iraq and then ambassador to India. He resigned from the administration to join a consulting firm in November 2004 and is still well-regarded among many in the administration for his analytical insight, including on both Iraq and India.
