Seymour Hersh reports Cheney considered false flag attack by US Navy seals in order to create a pretext for war with Iran.
Now, here's an ugly one. Just a small bit, and it's just one guy saying it that I can see right now, but I'll share it not because I am sure it is true, but because it seems totally plausible when it comes to Cheney. Seymour Hersh reports that Cheney considered creating four or five faux Iranian vessels with Navy Seals on board for the purposes of having them fire on other US vessels (that look like US vessels) to create a pretext for war with Iran. "That's the level of stuff we were talking about, provocation. But that was rejected, so I could understand the argument not writing something that was rejected. Maybe. I basically, my attitude always towards editors is that they're mice training to be rats." Sounds like you're calling yourself a rat, at least at times, eh Mr. Hersh? But thank you for telling us about this one. But next time, please, let you and your audience decide what is news. Tell us what you think is the truth, not just what the New York Times will allow you to publish. They are the paper did not publish the story about President Bush authorizing the National Security Agency (NSA) to conduct domestic eavesdropping for a year after they got the story! You should be way beyond playing their games. You are a journalist. Please, for the sake of all of us, follow your own intelligence and do your job.
In light of this, let none of us forget, or fail to continue spreading the word about, the attacks of September 11. As it is so succinctly put by many in the 9/11 truth movement, 9/11, like other attacks on America before then, was indeed an inside job. (Please visit my 9/11 link right below HOME on the menu, or just search anywhere!) Why would we not expect these sorts of tactics to be continued? They are they ultimate terrorist acts, and our government seems desperate to try to terrorize us. I won't be afraid.
