Want a war? Just wait for an excuse and go

Well, Bush used 9/11 as an excuse to do something he'd wanted to do for some time - invade Iraq - so it shouldn't be a surprise that Israel apparently was planning their attack on Lebanon long before those soldiers were seized.

And of course, it shouldn't surprise anyone that Bush gave Israel a "green light" for the whole thing and consider it a prelude to a potential attack by the U.S. on Iran.

The last thing that shouldn't surprise anyone is that even though this will all be in the New Yorker and is written by the very respectable Seymour Hersh, you can only read about it in the foreign and the Indie-progressive press (although I did find it buried in a very long column that collects news from the Internet).
