WTF?? Pt. II: The Iran Thing "Cleared Up"

Sure. Like a skin disease or something of that nature, that is. Which means, "not really," "temporarily," or "subject to change tomorrow in the next installment of the disinformation campaign."

I saw George on TV tonight rather late. He completely denied the rumors he wants to stage a nuclear attack on Iran.

Ill:(c) The Worried Shrimp

Given that I woke up this morning fully expecting that such a fiendish thing could well have been carried out while we in the Western world were snug in our cozy beds, George's denials weren't very comforting, & instead I decided to get more background on the harrowing stuff that I'd read in the wee hours yesterday.

The source of that information was Seymour Hersh, a Pulitzer-prize winning investigative reporter who has published an article in The New Yorker.

The Bush Administration & its flackies know Seymour: he was among the first to investigate allegations of torture & abuse at Abu Grhaib, the official response to which was a calculated denial-&-personal-smear-of-Seymour campaign. Much, much later, when it couldn't be covered up anymore, George admitted Abu was a disgrace that shouldn't have happened, but you'll remember that none but a few unlucky lowly scapegoats were ever actually punished for it.

The dogs, for instance:

Keep that in mind as you peruse the following. Seymour was interviewed on CNN by Wolf Blitzer today (link below should lead to a video of same & it's highly recommended viewing.) Older clips of Bush & Cheney both speaking to the subject are included. (Seems we're looking to protect Israel's interests in annhilating Iran.)

I'll provide only the highlights here. In his interview, he stated that Bush's approach to the Iran question is "Messianic."

"He thinks, as I wrote, that he's the only one now who will have the courage to do it. He's politically free. I don't think he's overwhelmingly concerned about the '06 elections, congressional elections. I think he really thinks he has a chance, and this is going to be his mission."

The blog function doesn't reliably provide click-through links (links appear on my screen, but not on yours), so here's the address to the CNN video, and if that still doesn't get you there, search CNN.com for Access, Hersh [sp] Iran.


And a shout-out to a special Hellboy for nudging me to look for the connection to Israel. As I told him, anything Israel does is such old news & so repetitive (invade, piss off Muslims, destroy), I really don't pay attention anymore, but I should.
