Preparing the battlefield

New Yorker's Seymour Hersh reports that Congress agreed late last year to President Bush's request to fund a major escalation of covert operations against Iran. Quoting current and former military, intelligence, and congressional sources, Hersh said the funding is designed to destabilize the country’s religious leadership. He also quotes fired Admiral William Fallon, former head of U.S. Central Command, as saying, “Too many people believe you have to be either for or against the Iranians. Let’s get serious. Eighty million people live there, and everyone’s an individual. The idea that they’re only one way or another is nonsense.”
