Wag the Dog, Crisis Scenarios for Deflecting Attention from the President's Woes


From Tomdispatch today, Michael Klare, "Wag the Dog, Crisis Scenarios for Deflecting Attention from the President's Woes" http://www.tomdispatch.com/index.mhtml?pid=36399

Here's what we already know: The President's men had no hesitation about employing "wag-the-dog" style scenarios to get us into a war in Iraq - and that was when they were riding high. Imagine what they might do in desperation. In fact, Michael Klare does just that in the latest Tomdispatch post, evaluating the most likely wag-the-dog scenarios (Syria, Iran, North Korea) this administration might seriously consider using if its situation grows too desperate and elections too near. This is a piece not to be missed.
