Seymour Hersh has a new article on the the plans to attack Iran. While I am not surprised by what Hersh reveals (and others echo – Wa. Post, Independent, Al Jazeera, AFP) in his article, the timing is more than interesting.
The news that the outing of CIA undercover agent Valerie Plame was ordered by none other than George W. Bush, has done absolutely nothing to silence the questions about the administration. Within the last months, there has been a steady stream of questionable events and decisions: manufacturing a case to invade Iraq raised by retired Generals, authorization of the NSA to engage in illegal wiretapping of U.S. citizens, the questionable sexual proclivities of officials at Homeland Security, the Abramoff and DeLay corruption and influence issues, etc. However, the latest news of Bush's involvement in the Plame leak is perhaps the most personally damning.
