Anonymous Sources Do Not Work In Building A War

   A lot is being made over the supposed evidence that the U.S. military has putting Iran as an instigator in providing bombs and such to the militia in Iraq.

   As you also know, U.S. officials had a news conference in Baghdad presenting their not quite substantial proof which was supposed to back up the governments ( Bush/Cheney ) claims. Yet the three that were hosting this news conference refused to be quoted by name.

    Ain't that some shit? I guess that they are not so confident in their report if they have to insist on being anonymous. We are supposed to believe anything that a ' stealth ' official tells us? I think not, Mr. President.

    Here's some of the reports that hit the paper today;

1)  The Washington Post

2)  AP

3)  BBC

    The evidence that the U.S. says that it has is being disputed by the Iranians and others. If the three officials are so sure of their evidence that they have, then why not step out onto the stage instead of hiding behind the curtain? Why not release the photo's that you supposedly have in your possession?

    There are many ' why not's ' in this mess and none of them can be answered in any acceptable manner.

Iraq Slogger   

After the bogus Iraq evidence debacle in 2002 and 2003 -- allegations that led to war, tens of thousands of lives lost, and hundreds of billions of dollars spent -- only a fool would accept as the gospel supposed evidence against another country that's presented by officials who insist on making their allegations anonymously.

We deserve better from the US government. We deserve better from the western news media.

   Yes indeed!
