Even as matters go from bad to worse in Iraq, the Bush administration appears to have begun military operations in an additional ten countries in the Middle East, North Africa and South Asia.
Most prominent among these countries is Iran, where the stated goal appears to be identifying targets related to Iran’s nuclear program that could be subject to a preemptive attack.
According to an explosive article by renowned investigative reporter Seymour Hersh, President Bush has signed a series of executive orders and Presidential findings authorizing the Pentagon to send in reconnaissance teams into a number of countries to prepare for military action without any congressional oversight.
Underlying the mission in Iran appears to be the prediction that an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities would lead to regime change, throwing out the fundamentalist mullahs who largely control the country. The only analysts who share this view also incorrectly predicted that our troops occupying Iraq would be greeted with flowers rather than an insurgency.
• Tell President Bush to rescind his executive orders authorizing Rumsfeld to send troops into countries with which we are not at war.
