Armageddon Watch, Part IV

Neocon recidivist Michael Ledeen meeting in Rome with Iranian arms dealer Manucher Ghorbanifar. Military intelligence being run through a "special office" outside normal channels and under Rumsfeld's control. Sabre rattling about WMDs.

The run-up to Operation Iraqi Freedom?

Yes. And no. It is also what they are doing right now, with Iran as this year's model.

I argued almost two years ago that the Iraq war has been a ripping success by the metrics that Bush & Co. really care about. The fact that they are following the Iraq script to a tee sure seems to support my hypothesis.
