SCOTT RITTER SAYS U.S. PLANS JUNE ATTACK ON IRAN ...and... ‘COOKED’ JAN. 30 IRAQI ELECTION RESULTS
February 19, 2005 UPPC (WA)
Scott Ritter, appearing with journalist Dahr Jamail yesterday in Washington State, dropped two shocking bombshells in a talk delivered to a packed house in Olympia’s Capitol Theater. The ex-Marine turned UNSCOM weapons inspector said that George W. Bush has "signed off" on plans to bomb Iran in June 2005, and claimed the U.S. manipulated the results of the recent Jan. 30 elections in Iraq. more.
More more here and here.
Ritter said that U.S. authorities in Iraq had manipulated the results in order to reduce the percentage of the vote received by the United Iraqi Alliance from 56% to 48%.
Ritter is the former UN weapons inspector who said there were no WMD's left in Iraq prior the prep for the latest war. That was before everyone realised Scott Ritter was right, at which point Rhetoric took a sharp turn towards "Democracy". Is this the end of the road for Rhetoric? Which way can it turn now?
If Saddam's regime had no weapons left and was on it's last legs anyway, and if a whole bunch of people wanted to vote regardless of war or not... does Iraq need troops at all?
