Ex-CIA Professionals: Weapons of Mass Distraction: Where? Find? Plant?
Discussion of the likelihood of the US planting evidence of WMDs in Iraq. Points that while the risk of planting is high given that the public will apparently accept the outcome of the war without any such evidence, the US has a substantial track record of planted evidence, eg, Guatemala, Cuba etc. Some of these incidents are hilarious... but becoming familiar with the history is essential in order to overcome the nearly mystical value which can be attributed to pronouncements from the lectern of the Whitehouse, the Pentagon or the State Department.
