20. I don't mean PNAC, because it's bigger than just the PNAC
The PNAC is just a small part. Afghanistan was pretty much accepted by everybody. Even Russia didn't mind. It was already a deal and everybody agreed about that invasion and the plans for Afghanistan were ready in detail.

Iraq was entirely different. It still needed a lot of planning. There was very little international support. Big struggles within the Intelligence community, struggles within the corporations as well. Dissent with people like Clarke. I get the impression that a lot of people were not told that Iraq was part of the grand plan and that originally most assumed that Afghanistan was the country which everybody was going to invade and the reason is of course that it was a failed state already. I think that the PNAC team decided unilaterally to add Iraq which explains the complete chaos and very obvious lies. Afghanistan was a smooth ride from the start and technically it is not an illegal war either.

Do you have a link for OSP, because if that predated 9/11 then it's interesting, however most things I've seen are past 9/11.
