PENTAGON POWER STRUGGLE

The Pentagon's war is not just being fought in Iraq. It is also being fought in Washington against any government agency that questions its official neo-con ideology.

A headline story in today's Washington Times says it clearly: "Pentagon Cheers CIA Shake-up." As the Washington Times is a cheerleader of the neo-con view, its story welcomes the purge at the CIA.

But that purge is intended to politicize US intelligence so that will be tailor-made to support the neo-con plans for regime change in the Middle East, war in Iraq, democracy forced on Iraq, universal war on terror, and security measures imposed on the US.

Woe to anyone in the CIA who ever questioned the existence of weapons of mass destruction or said there was no evidence of a connection between Saddam Hussein and al Qaeda!

Woe to those in the State Department who said the same thing!

This neo-con purge leaves the Pentagon as the determiner of intelligence and the controller of US foreign policy.
