Bush Replays Iraq Games on Iran

By Ray McGovern

Stop! Please. Get beneath the hype over former White House press secretary Scott McClellan’s book, What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception. Don’t miss forest for trees.

Not since John Dean told the truth about President Richard Nixon’s crimes have we had an account by a very close aide to a sitting president charging him with crimes of the most serious kind.

Read on.

The latest gambit has the EU pressuring the IAEA to virtually accuse Iran of working on a nuclear weapon. Some sort of strange contradiction seems to be developing between El Baradei and Ollie Whathisname. Just two weeks before Ollie accused Iran of hiding evidence, El Baradei stated publically that there was no concrete evidence of a weapons program. What's going on? I say Ollie is playing the EU's game. I think the EU wants to distract people from the fact that Pakistani weapon was created with the help of the European community, and was motivated by India's nukes, which the West has validated and approved - so the whole issue of the Muslim Bomb was really created by the EU and India.

As for Iran, I'd like to ask Ollie how Iran is supposed to disprove evidence it's not allowed to look at? Most signifigantly, the US claims it has an incriminating laptop. That sounds an awful lot like those old Nigerian documents to me. And Iran, like Iraq before it, is being subjected to the demand that it prove a negative.

The IAEA about face puts Iran in a touch spot and puts us that much closer to an actual attack on Iran - remember, the administration has been working on this propaganda for a year and already has 25% of the American public ready for a war, incredibly.
