Politics, money, and war.

Saturday, October 11


Ray McGovern and David MacMichael of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity have an interview with Sojourners in the November/December 2003 issue. Sojourners is a Christian group "for justice and peace"

It's a very good interview and much more personal than the others that have been published.
McGovern: It's the first time that I've seen such a long-term, orchestrated plan of deception by which one branch of our government deliberately misled the other on a matter of war and peace. Here was a very calculated plan, proceeding from a "Mein Kampf" type of document. All one need do is consult the Project for the New American Century on the Web to see the ideological and strategic underpinnings of this campaign. The first objective was to deceive Congress into approving the plans. They succeeded masterfully. They had their war, and they thought that in the wake of the war, with Iraqis opening their arms to us, no one would really care whether there were, in fact, weapons of mass destruction. They were absolutely wrong on that. People do care, as one by one our servicemen and women are killed in a war fought on false pretences.
