Three Card Monte

I hope everyone who reads this is planning on voting this year. Before you make your final decision, please remember, you are not only voting for the President. You are also indirectly voting for the people he appoints. One of those appointees in 2001 was Douglas Feith. One day, I will give you the full background on Mr. Feith. But today, I will provide with one of his many brilliant ideas.

Days after 9/11, a senior Pentagon official lamented the lack of good targets in Afghanistan and proposed instead U.S. military attacks in South America or Southeast Asia as "a surprise to the terrorists," according to a footnote in the recent 9/11 Commission Report. The unsigned top-secret memo, which the panel's report said appears to have been written by Defense Under Secretary Douglas Feith, is one of several Pentagon documents uncovered by the commission which advance unorthodox ideas for the war on terror.

[Based on recommendation of his appointees, he] argued that an attack on terrorists in South America—for example, a remote region on the border of Paraguay, Argentina and Brazil where intelligence reports said Iranian-backed Hizbullah had a presence—would have ripple effects on other terrorist operations.

Yeah, that's the ticket. Retaliate for 9/11 by attacking..........


By the way, he is apparently the target of the second phase of the Select Senate Intelligence Committee's investigation into pre-war intelligence.

Democratic Senator Jay Rockefeller said in a recent news conference,
"We've done a little bit of work on the No. 3 guy in the Defense Department, Douglas Feith, part of his alleged efforts to run intelligence past the intelligence community altogether; his relationship with the I.N.C. and Chalabi, who was very much in favor with the administration, wanting them to come on in; and was he running a private intelligence failure, which is not lawful.

These guys truly scare me...
