White House Promises "Sustained Attack" Against Democrats Challenging Iraq Lies


by Steve

Fantastic. The White House promised this afternoon to conduct a sustained attack against the Democrats for suggesting that the administration lied to the American people to sell the war in Iraq. Bring it on, losers.

The more the White House keeps the "we didn't lie" message in the media, the more the public will be reminded that they probably did.

And under the alternate theory category, throw in a dash of WMD "salting" into Iraq as the reason why the White House Iraq Group intentionally blew up Brewster Jennings, and who knows how bad it will get for them in the coming weeks?

According to Wayne Madsen last week:

According to U.S. intelligence sources, the White House exposure of Valerie Plame and her Brewster Jennings & Associates was intended to retaliate against the CIA's work in limiting the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. WMR has reported in the past on this aspect of the scandal. In addition to identifying the involvement of individuals in the White House who were close to key players in nuclear proliferation, the CIA Counter-Proliferation Division prevented the shipment of binary VX nerve gas from Turkey into Iraq in November 2002. The Brewster Jennings network in Turkey was able to intercept this shipment which was intended to be hidden in Iraq and later used as evidence that Saddam Hussein was in possession of weapons of mass destruction. U.S. intelligence sources revealed that this was a major reason the Bush White House targeted Plame and her network.

And yes, John Bolton's Fred Fleitz would have known all about the Agency's efforts to stop any such "salting" and easily could have passed it along to Bolton and Cheney.

Just food for thought. It's not like it was beyond these guys to hydroseed the reasons for their future invasion. First, you pass three different times on killing Zarqawi in 2002, and then you try and get nerve gas into the country during the same time, just like a guy named Cheney did in 1989 when Bush I was trying to help Saddam defeat the Iranians.
