Does Iran have more than one government?

We know that Iran has at least two power centers. One is the Presidency occupied by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad who has as his nominal superior and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, an Islamic cleric who approves all of the people on the ballot and all of the government’s actions.

But, whenever there is some nefarious plot to kill American troops or to assassinate ambassadors in Washington, another entity is named as if it were an independent entity: the Quds Force. For reasons that I can’t figure out, according to the MSM and the politicians interviewed, if the Quds Force kills Americans or assassinates diplomats it’s like it’s a rogue force, not an arm of the Iranian government. An analogy would be if the attack on Pearl Harbor was reported as an act committed by the Japanese Navy rather than an act of war by Japan.

What are we missing?
