Barbara Ann

Once again, Seymour Hersh has the scoop. They are MAD for Iran.

Mojo keeps asking us, "Are we there yet?" I keep answering, "Nope. Not yet. Soon. Very soon. Patience."

Update 1.0: Buried in the Hersh article is this interesting paragraph (emphasis mine):
“ ‘Force protection’ is the new buzzword,” the former senior intelligence official told me. He was referring to the Pentagon’s position that clandestine activities that can be broadly classified as preparing the battlefield or protecting troops are military, not intelligence, operations, and are therefore not subject to congressional oversight. “The guys in the Joint Chiefs of Staff say there are a lot of uncertainties in Iran,” he said. “We need to have more than what we had in Iraq. Now we have the green light to do everything we want.

There's your proverbial writing on the wall, Mojo.
