One step closer to seeing Tony Blair at The Hague 

For years it seems impregnable, then suddenly the citadel collapses. An ideology, a fact, a regime appears fixed, unshakeable, almost geological. Then an inch of mortar falls, and the stonework begins to slide. Something of this kind happened over the weekend.

IRANIANS USED CHALABI TO DUPE U.S. INTO INVASION

The Defense Intelligence Agency has concluded that for years Iran has used a U.S.-funded arm of Ahmad Chalabi's Iraqi National Congress to funnel disinformation to the United States and to collect highly sensitive American secrets, according to intelligence sources.

Patrick Lang, former director of the DIA's Middle East branch, said he had been told by colleagues that Chalabi's U.S.-funded program to provide information about weapons of mass destruction and insurgents was effectively an Iranian intelligence operation. "They (the Iranians) knew exactly what we were up to," he said.

He described it as "one of the most sophisticated and successful intelligence operations in history. I'm a spook. I appreciate good work. This was good work," he said.

PERHAPS OUR WORK IS DONE ?

This may yet be the final posting in the 'Go Figure' blog. A little over a year ago, there was a real & growing concern that the American public, and those further afield, were being lied to by the media regarding the true nature of the awful neocon experiment under way in the White House.

Well, it's taken a while, but like toxic waste buried underground, eventually all the awful lies and deceipts perpetuated by this apalling administration finally percolated to the surface for all to see.

The truth, and the lies ... are out.
The truth that Sadam and Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11 ....is out
The truth that Sadam and Iraq had no WMDs nor represented a threat to the U.S. ... is out
The truth that U.S. forces have mistreated Iraqi (& other) detainees ... is out
The lie that invading Iraq would advance the War On Terrorism ... is out
The lie that invading Iraq would stabilise oil prices .... is out
The lie that invading Iraq would stabilise the Middle East ... is out
The lie that invading Iraq would make the world a safer place ... is out

The truth no longer has to be sought out on specialist blogs & websites. The truth is finally being discovered and aired in the mainstream media. The avalance of books about this White House, and the revelations of former insiders such as Paul O'Neill, have certainly added nails to Bush's coffin.

But the tipping point has, we believe, been reached with the Prisoner Abuse crisis now facing Bush & Rumsfeld. Things can only get more dire for the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld Oil & Gas cabal, as they fight a losing battle to control a news cycle that's uncontrollable.

In many ways, a landmark has been reached when the right-wing, pro-Bush and pro-Iraq invasion "ECONOMIST" magazine screams from it's cover for Rumsfeld to resign. Indeed, this august journal has also demanded that Cheney step down, having become such a liability for the Republicans. Strange days indeed.

TIME FOR DUBYA TO ADMIT HE SCREWED UP

Why Won't Dubya Apologize? Botched 9/11 info, two botched wars, a gutted economy, global scorn. Why can't W be a man? San Francisco Chronicle

SPOTLIGHT ON ISRAEL'S WMDs

The Israeli armed forces now possess missiles capable of delivering a nuclear payload up to 1,500 kilometres away, and are developing others with much longer range. They have acquired more than 200 nuclear-capable aircraft, and have completed the land-air-and-sea triad by buying three nuclear-capable submarines. They probably have more nuclear warheads than Britain, including thermonuclear warheads. Israel is a fully-fledged member of the nuclear club and possessor of weapons of mass destruction, with just one difference - that it will not admit to the fact. GUARDIAN
WHITE HOUSE ARROGANCE BREATHTAKING

Like Mafiosi marveling at the authenticity of the latest "Sopranos" episode, the president's true believers have gazed into (Bob) Woodward's mirror and taken perverse pride at what they see reflected there.
