C.I.R. News of the Day

– Today I came across two interesting stories. The first is the whole “Bush to invade Iran” ongoing drama. I am pretty sure it was the BBC that announced a number of months ago we were going to invade. In the article they speak of contingency plans that the Pentagon has. To anyone that knows anything about the military there are plans for everything, in the event that you need a plan right away you must have something to work from. I am sure the Pentagon has a contingency plan ready in the event that the girl scouts of Bermuda try to attack. Is what I find most interesting about journalism these days is that we have gone past the era of the “unnamed source” and have progressed to the realm of “unnamed author.”

Second on my list is simple, justice has been served. “Guantanamo Bay detainees may not challenge their detention in U.S. courts, a federal appeals court said Tuesday in a ruling upholding a key provision of a law at the center of President Bush's anti- terrorism plan.” A wrong has no been righted and now maybe we can get on to fighting this war instead of trying it in the courts.

But I thought it has been nearly a year since the British press said we were going to nuke Iran, from the archives...
The British press informing me about the US military options. Then it just got better. Their source for the story, none other than Sy Hersh. Mr. Abu Ghraib himself. The one caught in multiple lies in regards to many later depictions he made of things he really hadn't seen...
