Hmm, not sure. Instinctively I'd go for "iteratives = haste

Maybe chalk another one up to WotC's lousy editing?
*The other logical interpretation would be Tvtyrant's: haste
gives you one extra attack, period, divided as you see fit. In that case, of course, the "with a weapon he is holding" clause serves no actual function, which is not likely to be RAW.
