Did you know that in 2007 General Peter Pace, then head of the Joint Chiefs, and Zbigniew Brzezinski openly challenged President Bush’s claim that the Iranian government was directly responsible for providing weapons to anti-US fighters in Iraq? The challenges in February 2007 pulled the rug out from under Bush’s excuse for military action against Iran.
Today, the Obama administration is revving up for a military action against Iran with recent charges about assassination plots involving Iran and Mexican drug cartel hit men. This time, the response is much more visible and borders on derision. This article describes the remarkable similarities between the 2007 and 2011 storylines
By Michael Collins
(Washington, DC) A faction of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard called the Quds Force (QF) is center stage in the War on Terror for the second time in five years. In 2007, President George W. Bush hauled out the group of middle and upper level Iranian government officials as a rationale for military action against Iran. The decisive shutdown of the Bush effort marks a critical turning point in recent history and will be discussed later in the article.
