After rummaging through the old tape bin last night, Keith compares the eerie similarities between Bush's 2002 Iraq rhetoric and his 2007 Iran rhetoric and puts together a pretty compelling case that should worry us all.
"It has been a haunting undertone to the new year. At moments, the start of 2007 has sounded like the end of 2002 or the start of 2003. It's been as if you could just substitute one letter; an 'n' for a 'q'. Like all that President Bush once said before he took us to war in Iraq was being recycled as what he's been now saying about Iran."
The fact that we're even talking about the (very real) possibility of attacking Iran is utterly dumbfounding. The part that scares me most is the confirmation we got just last week that the administration has set up an Iranian Directorate that will fulfill the same purpose as the OSP did for Iraq -- namely, manipulate and exploit intelligence to fit preconceived policy goals.
