these people are crazy!!!

And not in a "had-one-too-many-margaritas" fun way kind of crazy. But actually a dangerous and sociopathic sort of crazy!

Seymour Hersh, the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, wrote a recent article in the New Yorker titled "Shifting Targets - The Administration’s plan for Iran"

In Hersh's lead he says... "In a series of public statements in recent months, President Bush and members of his Administration have redefined the war in Iraq, to an increasing degree, as a strategic battle between the United States and Iran."

This is scary stuff going on here! Instead of our government taking responsibility for our role in creating this "war" in Iraq, they are now trying to blame Iran for what ails us in this quagmire of all quagmires. In fact, our government recently voted to classify a branch of Iran's military as a terrorist group (I refer to the Lieberman-Kyl Amendment).

The passing of the "Sense of Senate" makes me ashamed. And!!! I am wholly aware the implications this kind of vote will have toward starting a "war" with Iran.

Seymour Hersh is one of the Administration’s more outspoken critics and has been waaaay ahead of the curve when it comes to calling out their warmongering.

Please take some time to read this very important article. I don't think you'll regret the time.

P.S. You can also watch Seymour Hersh on Countdown with Keith Olbermann here.

Anyone interested in this article might also be interested in this commentary on the interview that Mike Gravel gave to the NewsHour the other night.


Gravel is an admirable person to me, in the same way that Dennis Kucinich and Ron Paul are. I don't agree with every one of their points of view, but I do admire their willingness to speak the plain truth as they see it.
