New Intelligence Agency

The Office of Special Plans (OSP) is a new intelligence agency. It has taken on the CIA and won. Where the CIA dithered over Iraq, the OSP pressed on. George W. Bush is supporting it.

The OSP is the brainchild of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, who set it up after 9/11 according to The Guardian newspaper in London in an article published 11 May 2003. It was tasked with going over old ground on Iraq and showing that the CIA had overlooked the threat posed. But its rise has caused massive ructions in the normally secretive world of intelligence gathering.

The OSP reports directly to Paul Wolfowitz, a leading hawk in the administration. They bypassed the CIA and the Pentagon's own Defense Intelligence Agency when it came to whispering in the President's ear. They argued a forceful case for war against Saddam before his weapons programmes came to fruition. More moderate voices in the CIA and DIA were drowned out. The result has been a flurry of leaks to the US press.

America is executing about 10,000 Iraqis with high-tech weaponry, poisoning its own soldiers with depleted uranium ammunition, funneling billion dollar contracts to its own chosen stooge conglomerates, indefinitely postponing free and fair elections for the Iraqi people, and running a new oil pipeline from Iraq to Israel.

All of the hard drugs were legal before 1914, and there were few addicts. Studies show that even addicts can be productive, and also that they do not engage in crime when they can get their drugs inexpensively.
