UPDATED: Sy Hersh joined CNN’s Late Edition and discussed his new article out in the New Yorker: “Shifting Targets,” which says that the WH has a new talking point which it will sell and as usual—our media will lap it it! ” The CIA has created an Iran Study group with dozens of new members that have the goal of launching a strike against Iran, but will now include ground forces. Bush feels that using the nuclear threat as the reason to bomb Iran has failed miserably so they switched talking points and are going to say they are defending themselves against Iranian meddling in Iraq. We told you so….
Hersh: You can also sell counter-terror, it’s much more logical. You can say to the American people, we’re only hitting these people that are trying to kill our boys and the coalition forces and so that seems to be more sensible, The White House think s they can actually pitch this, this would actually work…
Now you understand why the Lieberman/Kyl amendment was just put through. If BushCo. wants to heighten the sense of nationalism in Iran, just attack them and keep on this course of immorality. It’s another disaster coming from Bush/Cheney and the Neocons in a long line of them and I know Bush and Cheney thank our media for doing what they always do…Nothing, except Sy…Thanks Sy….Here’s my Iran Action Alert post:
Call the Capitol switchboard at 202-225-3121. We need to let our representatives know that Bush cannot attack Iran.
In an unrelated aside, Vic and I spent our 11th anniversary in Reno(?), where we saw Queensryche, Alice Cooper, and Black Sabbath on our actual anniversary night. Alice kicked butt. We just got back last night after being stranded downtown with car troubles all day Saturday.
