Hey, Maybe We Just Invaded the Wrong Country
Former UN weapons inspector Scott Ritter, who was on the money regarding Iraq, says that covert operations have already started in Iran:
President Bush has taken advantage of the sweeping powers granted to him in the aftermath of 11 September 2001, to wage a global war against terror and to initiate several covert offensive operations inside Iran.
The most visible of these is the CIA-backed actions recently undertaken by the Mujahadeen el-Khalq, or MEK, an Iranian opposition group, once run by Saddam Hussein's dreaded intelligence services, but now working exclusively for the CIA's Directorate of Operations.
It is bitter irony that the CIA is using a group still labelled as a terrorist organisation, a group trained in the art of explosive assassination by the same intelligence units of the former regime of Saddam Hussein, who are slaughtering American soldiers in Iraq today, to carry out remote bombings in Iran of the sort that the Bush administration condemns on a daily basis inside Iraq.
It is amazing that such things are happening without a peep from the "liberal" media. Another example of similar shenanigans was reported Philip Giraldi in the latest issue of The American Conservative. Giraldi claims that the Pentagon created phony jihadist websites claiming that Abu Mu'sab al-Zarqawi was injured and traveling with two supporters in a "neighboring country." These phony allegations appear designed to justify Special Forces incursions into Syria and Iran. Maybe you will read about this in about 2007 when the NY Times is apologizing for their sorry coverage leading up the next war.
