War in Iran, coming soon!

Courtesy of our wonderful Bush administration, we're now funding covert operations in Iran designed to destabilize the government, as reported by the New Yorker. Apparently we haven't learned anything from our 1953 coup of the same country that led to the 1979 Iranian Revolution and understandably strong anti-American sentiment. And, not learning anything from supporting sketchy organizations in the past, we're supporting terrorist groups there today: Ahwazi Arab and Baluchi dissident groups, which have in the past given us Ramzi Yousef--convicted for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombings--and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed--the mastermind of 9/11 and one of the few people the Bush administration considers bad enough to admit that they waterboarded him.

And by all appearances, this is all being actively sought by Bush and Cheney. I am not making this stuff up, unfortunately. Read it and weep.
