Just to get the Obvious Out of the Way On the Newsday article discussed below, I was too obtuse. Hesiod pretty much gets right down to the nub of it:
THE INTELLIGENCE COUP OF THE CENTURY: This is stunning. The whole "get Saddam" movement among the neocons, as fueld by Ahmed Chalabi and the Iraqi National Congress, was a front operation for the Iranians to get rid of Saddam Hussein. No. The Neocons weren't actually intentionally working for the Iranians. That would, at least, be worthy of respect for their deviousness and clevreness. No. They were dupes. D-U-P-E-S. The kind of folk who, in past eras here in the United States, would be pilloried by the conservative movement. People who would be decried as nauseum.
Just to recycle my other material from the comments on his site I bloviated: In the late 1940's the original "Republithug" Joe McCarthy led the cheers of "Who Lost China?", well it's payback time a-holes. Never in our history...NEVER...have we been so totally played for suckers, at least the Zimmerman Telegram was a real document. This is the American equivalent of "The Donation of Constantine" or "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion". The amazing thing is the core of the "Fundy" movement may believed all three of these chicaneries.
