Yet another example of how Cheney's evil knows no boundaries. I wonder who that aide might be? Hannah? Wurmser? Bueller?
Report: Cheney aide clearing path to bomb Iran RAW STORY
Published: Thursday May 24, 2007
A report published today reveals a growing game of tug-of-war between President Bush and his No. 2 regarding the US approach towards Iran.
Vice President Dick Cheney believes the US should not be pursuing a diplomatic path with Iran, and a senior aide to the vice president has been meeting with national security think tanks and consultants in Washington to "help establish the policy and political pathway to bombing Iran," Steve Clemons reported Thursday on his blog, The Washington Note.
Cheney is the person in the Bush administration who most desires a "hot conflict" with Iran and believes the administrations pursuit of diplomacy, led by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, is a mistake, Clemons reports.
The Cheney aide, who has met with policy hands of the American Enterprise Institute along with other groups, "has stated to several Washington insiders that Cheney is planning to deploy an 'end run strategy' around the President if he and his team lose the policy argument," according to Clemons.
