It's discussed in a recent Seymour Hersch article in The New Yorker. The 
article is called "Plan B." 

Using plan "B" is apparently Israel's response to the US's foolish refusal to 
seal the Iran/Iraq border, which has allowed so many terrorists and fighters 
to cross into Iraq. When warned by Israel, the article contends, the US felt 
that contact with regular Iranian citizens was a healthy thing for Iraqis, 
outweighing the danger of terrorist agents. 

The Israelis contended that no, the Iranians would set up charity 
organizations and use them as fronts to organize resistance and terror 
operations. Events 
have shown Israel was right, Hersch argues.
