Iran new U.S. whipping boy

Those who deceived America into attacking Iraq may be at it again, cautions Eric Margolis

By ERIC MARGOLIS -- Contributing Foreign Editor


Did Iran help al-Qaida stage the Sept. 11 attacks on the United States?

Perhaps, suggested the U.S. 9/11 commission. It claimed Iran allowed eight al-Qaida future airplane hijackers to pass through Iran from Afghanistan between seven and 11 months prior to the attacks on America.

Unnamed senior Bush administration officials also claim Iran proposed collaborating with al-Qaida in 2000, but was rejected by Osama bin Laden. "Maybe we attacked the wrong country," one of the dimmer lights in Congress ruefully observed.

3. The only thing that this administration knows how to recycle are the lies
it tells to justify it's actions.
