Catch Up

by | Jan 23, 2006 | Stress Blog

If anybody out there needs to catch up or get a good refresher course in who lied us into war in Iraq and how, may I recommend this great article by former DIA officer W. Patrick Lang, “Drinking the Kool-Aid” from the summer of 2004? It is a detailed retelling of the activities of the neoconservatives in the office of the vice-president, the Office of Special Plans, the Policy Counter-Terrorism Evaluation Group and the way they accomplished their end-run around the regular intelligence agencies in order to make grown men frightened enough of Iraq to warrant invasion.

Note that accused Niger uranium forger and pardoned Nicauragua harbor miner Duane “Dewey” Clarridge is featured as working with the Iraqi National Congress/Rendon Group, and was the origin of the plan referred to in this piece by David Corn about his meeting with “Prince of Darkness” Richard Perle to invade Iraq with only 40,000 thousand men – only in Clarridge’s earlier version it was only supposed to be 5,000 INC “soldiers” and a couple of special forces guys.

Boy, now that would have been a real cakewalk, huh?
