WASHINGTON, June 13 (Reuters) - The Pentagon said on Friday it could not confirm media reports about the presence of Iranian special forces operating inside Iraq.

"I've seen the press reporting on that ... but I have nothing to confirm that there are Iranian special forces inside Iraq," spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby said.
