American Samizdat

Saturday, December 08, 2007. *
Scott Ritter, former U.S. Marine and UN weapons inspector and author of Target Iran: The Truth About the White House’s Plans for Regime Change, discusses the new Iran NIE, its confirmation of his long-held contention that Iran does not have a nuclear weapons program, the lack of hard evidence that they ever did, the illogic of the administration’s demands that Iraq and now Iran prove a negative, the mysterious origin of the “smoking laptop,” his patriotism, the state of Iran’s compliance with the IAEA, the possibility that the timing of the NIE’s release was a preemptive action against Mohamed ElBaradei’s upcoming report on the last outstanding questions, the lies claiming Iran is backing enemies of the U.S. in Iraq, the necessity of withdrawal, his case that the total debacle of the Iraqi occupation is the result of abject incompetence, the danger to U.S. troops in Iraq in the event of war with Iran, his admiration for Ron Paul and the need of the American people to destroy the careers of their warmonger representatives.

The Meme is set. You really want to listen to this audio interview at the link.

Happy Coincidence Week. Just after the CIA releases the NIE, ready to go jail rather than fall for Bu$hCo's lies on Iran...lo & comes out that the CIA destroyed torture tapes. And "the President" knew nothing about it. Cries everywhere that CIA destroyed evidence - obstruction of justice 'cuz they knew they were breaking the law...unconscionable they thunder across Washington...Something is seriously wrong at the CIA...Even "Democrat" Congress is braying...

No worry. Anticipating this report was coming out neoFascist Wolfowitz was appointed to Chief of WMD Evidence Manufacture at State Dept. last week, and the Great Ship Mad Fascist will soon be righted..

I've wondered for some time what a US Government-sanctioned water boarding device looks like.

Is it a sleek and body-sculpted stainless steel body tray with remote-activated military grade brass worm gears and teflon coated axis components or just a piece of plywood slapped over the top of a metal folding chair like the ones they use in the WWF TV shows..

Of course all this will blow over by the end of the weekend, if the ptb have their way... or, you know, something else comes up...

Oh, and two things, while I very much respect Ritter, that doesn't mean I agree with him on his assessment of the incompetence meme. Nor do I agree with him pm Ron Paul. Finally, note he did not spacifically endorse him for president if you listen closely.
