Neo-Cons Begin to Crumble
The broad mass of a nation . . . will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one.

Most people who have been paying attention are fully aware that the intention of the US to launch an unprovoked offensive war against Iraq, has been in the works for years; well before George W. Bush was awarded his position in the oval office. Certainly not alone in their quest, but among the most prominent proponents, are the founders and current of the Project for a New American Century (PNAC), which include prominently influential members of the Bush team.
Those closely associated with the PNAC include top Bush officials Dick Cheney & Donald Rumsfeld, and rabid Zionists such as Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, Elliott Abrams, and William Kristol. The PNAC unabashedly promoted a plan to steer vast resources towards 'rebuilding' an already bloated US Military into a colossus that could impose US hegemony on the planet, and in space, at a level that could not be challenged by any other force. Proposals of the PNAC included withdrawal from international arms treaties, and pre-emptive attacks on any perceived threat. Aspects of PNAC proposals have been part of US policies for a very long time.
However, these ideas have been too extreme for the American public, and are in blatant violation of international law, so they were previously done covertly. According to the Project for a New American Century in order to win American public approval for their plan, it would require "some catastrophic and catalyzing event, like a new Pearl Harbor." The events of September 11, 2001, provided just such an opportunity. Not long after that event, many of the PNAC proposals became official US policies when they showed up in The National Security Strategy of the United States of America.
In October of 2001, current Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is reported to have stated the following: "I want to tell you something very clear. Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it."
It appears as if that boast was not an idle one. The Bush team used the momentum gained from the 9/11 attacks to strip Americans of their Constitutional rights using legislation such as the Patriot Act and the Homeland Security Act. Team Bush launched attacks on Afghanistan and long time enemy of the Zionists, Iraq, based primarily on hearsay and conjecture.
The stated reasons for the latest attack on Iraq were largely based on an immanent threat posed by the alleged Weapons of Mass Destruction said to be at the disposal of Iraqi President, and former US client, Saddam Hussein. Repeated dubious claims were made by the Bush team, in an effort to persuade US and UK representatives of the urgent need to attack Iraq, as a matter of pre-emptive self-defense. From aluminum tubes claimed as intended for use in enriching uranium, to huge stockpiles of chemical and biological agents, to terrorist ties with Al Qaida, Bush officials churned out an array of horrifying claims about the destructive capabilities of Saddam Hussein.
To date, every one of the claims made by the Bush team with respect to Hussein's WMD capabilities have come up short. They are now pleading for more time to find the weapons, despite their previous ridicule of the UN inspections team for not being able to locate them, and the denial of a French request to allow the inspectors an additional 30 days to continue their work. Donald Rumsfeld confidently claimed that he 'knew where they (WMD) were', yet months after the supposed end of the conflict, he has produced nothing of substance. The claims of the Bush team have been routinely discredited almost as fast as they have made them, but now it appears that they may have been caught in an outright lie.
A recent BBC report states: "Both President Bush and UK Prime Minister Tony Blair mentioned the claim, based on British intelligence, that Iraq was trying to get uranium from Niger as part of its attempt to build a nuclear weapons programme.
"Mr Blair is under fire from British MPs about the credibility of a dossier of evidence, which set out his case for war.
"And in the US, increasing doubts are being raised about the American use of intelligence.
"In his keynote speech to Congress in January, the President said: "The British Government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa. "
"But the documents alleging a transaction were found to have been forged."
This does not bode well for Tony Blair who, just today, steadfastly defended the intelligence that he used to persuade his country to go to war.
The BBC goes on to report: " But a former diplomat, Ambassador Joseph Wilson, went on the record at the weekend to say that he had travelled to Africa to investigate the uranium claims and found no evidence to support them.
"Now the CIA has told the BBC that Mr Wilson's findings had been passed onto the White House as early as March 2002.
"That means that the administration would have known before the State of the Union address that the information was likely false - not just subsequently."
The source of the forged documents is still unknown, but if it is true that White House officials knew about the forgeries prior to publicly making numerous false claims to the contrary, this may well represent a significant vulnerability for the Cabal.
