The War Party Means Business
The War Party Means Business
You didn't hear about or read this in the "mainstream" news media:

"The Pentagon, acting under instructions from Vice President Dick Cheney's office, has tasked the United States Strategic Command (STRATCOM) with drawing up a contingency plan to be employed in response to another 9/11-type terrorist attack on the United States. The plan includes a large-scale air assault on Iran employing both conventional and tactical nuclear weapons. … The response is not conditional on Iran actually being involved in the act of terrorism…."

This shocker was written by Philip Giraldi, an intelligence analyst with the respected firm of Cannistraro Associates. When we first read it in The American Conservative magazine, we treated it as a major news story, but here's a question you might be wondering about: Where is the "mainstream" media? Why aren't they reporting this?

Why haven't you heard about this in the major newspapers or on television? These outlets have been intimidated into silence by the U.S. government and their amen corner in the pundit class. They don't want to rock the boat. According to Giraldi, neither do "several senior Air Force officers involved in the planning." They "are reportedly appalled at the implications of what they are doing," he wrote, "but no one is prepared to damage his career by posing any objections."

Yet they went to Giraldi, hoping that a public outcry would relieve them of the ominous sense that what they are being ordered to do is monstrous – and has to be stopped.
