New information suggests that the US is intentionally flying blind on Iran. The report details the job of Valerie Plame, the outed CIA agent. She may have been working on tracking Iran’s suspected WMD program and was deliberately sabotaged, “leaving the field open for the neocons and their foreign operatives to move into the vacuum and keep their very effective lie factory working overtime.”
The ramifications for this revelation are profound. Justin Raimondo explains:
All indications are that an active campaign to set up Iran for attack was going full gear even as George W. Bush was declaring “mission accomplished” in Iraq. As we look at the different pieces of the puzzle, a definite picture begins to emerge: what we are seeing are the outlines of a coordinated covert action, engineered by neoconservative ideologues in and around the Pentagon and Dick Cheney’s office, and carried out in cooperation with the Israelis. Their objective: gin up a war with Iran, even as we marched into Iraq.
It now appears that the neo-conservatives were determined to intentionally side-line any experts on the Iran question, leaving the Bush administration, not unlike with Iraq, to exaggerate “facts” on WMD.
The Australian media prefers to ignore all of this, and simply publishes doomsday articles about Iran.
We are being set-up. Again.
